VAT on Sales Orders

Tax codes on manually entered orders

Every product in Brightpearl is assigned a tax code. When the product is added to a sales order the product tax code is used. However, if the customer has been assigned a tax code, this will override the product.

It is possible for each tax code on an order to be manually changed after the item has been added to the order.

When a tax code is assigned to an order row, the tax amount is automatically calculated using the tax code rate. It is possible to manually type in a different tax amount, which will override the Brightpearl calculation. This is called "Manual Tax". Manual tax is indicated with a yellow tax amount field on the order.

Tax codes on downloaded orders

When an order is downloaded from a sales channel it will use the Tax Rules to decide which tax code should be assigned to each order row.
