  2. Press CTRL+N to create a new posting type for the tax amounts that are adjusted.

  3. In the Posting type field, select Tax adjustment – Settlement.

  4. In the Main account field, select the main account to temporarily post the tax adjustment amount to.


    You must define an account in the Chart of accounts form to post the tax adjustment amount.
