Use this form to set up codes for the charges that are used on sales orders, purchase orders, and invoices. Charges include amounts such as invoice fees, freight, and insurance.

NoteNote

After you create charges codes, you can use them when you record sales orders, purchase orders, or invoices. You can attach charges to an order at the level of the order header and at the level of the order line. Examples of header-level charges include freight, insurance, and postage. An example of a line-level charge is a unit-based freight charge. Line-level charges can be added to the header and then allocated to the lines.

You can also group the charges codes into charges groups, and you can set up automatic charges. Before the system can assign charges to sales orders, you must set up the charges in the Auto charges form in Accounts receivable. Likewise, before the system can assign charges to purchase orders, you must set up the charges in the Automatic charges form in Accounts payable.
