Why do my tax return reports not match the export report?


I have a company that has a child company, set to separate reporting entity no.

When I run the tax return report it shows values that are different from the export reports.

The export reports are correct and match the transaction window.

  • This can happen if you have a child company that's set to separate reporting entity no.
  • This means that your reports that can be run for just a single company will show only that company's liability. However, the tax return reports default to include child companies that are set to separate reporting entity No.
  • You can separate them, if you'd like, by switching from all to just a single one.
