- The Tax Code Summary capability was implemented to meet the local tax office requirement that Tax Amounts be displayed in the currency of the subsidiary (country for which the tax is being collected) rather than in the currency of the transaction itself. It is suggested to remove the Tax Code Summary selection if this is undesirable in a particular case and utilize the form customization and PDF generation capabilities to implement an alternate presentation.
- The pertinent tax laws are the following:
Section 5.1 states the following:
5.1 What details must I include on a VAT invoice?
You must show the following details on any VAT invoices you issue:
■a sequential number based on one or more series which uniquely identifies the document

■the name, address and VAT registration number of the supplier
■the name and address of the person to whom the goods or services are supplied
■a description sufficient to identify the goods or services supplied
