Default tax code for sales invoice item


Would it be possible to select the tax to individual sales items as they are created, so that when creating the invoice it would then automatically be selected. In our case GST is the default on sales and services, plus purchases


Yeah, this feature is required for general ledger accounts and inventory items too. I’m planning to add it soon.

The reason why it hasn’t been added before is because a while back I wasn’t sure whether I can get away with single tax code column and still properly support any tax system.


The latest version (14.7.32) now allows to set default tax code for sales invoice items and purchase invoice items.


Thank you Lubos.


How do I set this, I have the latest version of desktop, and cannot see where to set a default tax code for an income account. Could you elaborate?


This was for sales invoice items only.

Check the latest version (14.7.49). Default tax code field has been added to Chart of Accounts level too so you should be able to set it for your income/expense accounts as well.


Thank you very much. Any chance that when we go to enter a new invoice, we have not either a customer or an item in the system, we could simply have a pop up box to ADD NEW


This has been suggested number of times. I would love to do it but there is still something more important to work on. Don’t worry, you will see it within a few months.


Hi Lubos, any chance you could please look at this again
