Updated: April 3, 2013

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3

Click General ledger > Setup > Sales tax > External > Sales tax reporting codes.

Use this form to create and maintain sales tax reporting codes, and to associate the codes with sales tax reporting XML codes. The sales tax codes refer to a field number on the sales tax report for your country or region. After you create the sales tax reporting codes, you can select them on the Report setup FastTab in the Sales tax codes form.

Use the sales tax reporting codes to set up country-specific/region-specific sales tax reports. This setup provides a flexible way to define the layout of the sales tax report.


The controls that are described in this topic apply only to your country/region. For full documentation of this form, see the following topic or topics:
