Click General ledger > Setup > Sales tax > Sales tax settlement periods.

Use this form to create and manage the sales tax settlement periods that your legal entity uses when reporting sales tax. Additionally, use this form to view the sales tax transactions of each settlement period and each period in a settlement period.

Posted transactions are designated with the settlement period in which the taxes that are related to the transaction must be reported. You select sales tax settlement periods for sales tax codes. Sales tax codes are added to the sales tax groups and item sales tax groups that are selected for transactions.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.

Tab

Description

General

Set up the sales tax authority code, terms of payment, and length of the periods that are included in the sales tax settlement period.

Periods

Add or remove the periods of the sales tax settlement period. You can create all the periods manually, or you can create the first period manually and then click New period to create subsequent periods. If your legal entity performs cash flow forecasts that estimate sales tax payments, create several periods in the future.

NoteNote

You cannot change a period for which a sales tax payment transaction is posted. Likewise, tax transactions cannot be removed from the period in which they were posted. To correct errors, you must create an offsetting transaction that is identical to the original transaction, but that has the opposite mathematical sign.

Number of units

Select the number of the period unit for the selected period interval that defines the periods of the selected sales tax settlement period. The length of each period that is created on the Periods FastTab is the period interval multiplied by the number of units.

For example, if the tax authority wants to receive payments every month, select Months in the Period interval field and enter 1 in the Number of units field. Enter the dates for the first period on the Periods FastTab, and then create successive periods by clicking New period the appropriate number of times.
