Can we use a tax calculation date in the past on a currently dated transaction?


You want to know if you can calculate tax for a transaction dated today but apply a tax rate for a previous period.

  • To use a tax rate from a previous period use a Tax Date Override and enter that date in the Tax Calculation Date.


Note: Most customers only use a tax calculation date override when processing a credit invoice to ensure that the tax rate is identical to the original sale which they are crediting.
