Before You Begin

Make sure you have completed the tasks described in Set Up Taxes.

Configuring the Sabrix MTS Tax Service

Getting Here: Click Configuration > Integrations > Taxation Configuration

  1. Click New to set up a Sabrix MTS-specific taxation configuration.
  2. Fill in all the required fields of a new taxation configuration (i.e. Status, Set Name, Set Description, and Countries).

    For additional information, reference Create Taxation Configuration.

Note: Selected countries (in the right column) are the only countries that will be included for taxing in the Sabrix MTS integration. All other countries (in the left column), are either taxed using another taxation method, or are not subject to any taxes.

  1. Choose Sabrix MTS from the Method drop-down.

    A new form populates, specific to the Sabrix MTS configuration, with Tax Group Configuration and Tax Config Values sections to complete. Fill in all fields within these sections, detailed below, before clicking Save.

Tax Group Configuration

Complete each section within the Tax Group Configuration based on the tax groups chosen. See below for information on what input is required for each section.

  • Line/Attributes/ProductCode: The description or product code of the line item.
  • Line/Quantity/UOM: The quantity or unit of measure (UOM) of the line item.

Tax Config Values

Configure the Tax Config Values section based on the tax groups chosen. For additional information on what input to provide for each field, reference the chart below.

Note: The Tax Config Value fields are at the client-level. Many fields in this taxation interface have a Supp Field Override field next to them. Where this field appears, you have the option, if account supplemental fields are configured, to select an account supplemental field to override the adjacent field. Use this field if any information must be passed at the account level instead of at the client level The values in the drop-down menu vary depending on the client.
