Accounts payable parameters (form)



Primary relation

Select Item or Vendor as the primary parameter to determine how taxes are applied for item and account relations in the Taxes matrix form in the general ledger.

Withholding tax for several companies

Select this check box to calculate withholding tax by accumulating the base amount for several legal entities to identify previous vendor payments. If the check box is cleared, the accumulated withholding tax base amount is calculated only for the invoice legal entity.


If this check box is selected, withholding tax is calculated, taking into account payments that are made by the same vendor to all related legal entities.


Select the legal entity that is used to implement the withholding tax base amount calculation. Withholding tax for all legal entities that are associated with the legal entity is included in the calculations.
