Tax code for opening balances

Hi All,

I am trying ot import opening balances for customers using oInvoices DTW template.

ALso setting up a suspense a/c for the same.

But while importing the system demands Tax code to be set.

If I leave it blank it gives an error. And if I set a dummy (0%) tax code it does not allow to import.

Can anybody suggest for the tax code stuff.

Let me first correct the Statement from Jimmy "Tax code must be 8 characters".

The maximum length permitted for a Tax Code is 8 Charecter. You can set your Tax code as '0' or 'EX' or 'EXEMPT'

I am not sure how different in SBO 2005 B is but I am saying this by reading the notes.

I believe you will have to first setup a Tax type using

Administration > Setup > Financial > Tax > Tax Type

then define a Tax Code determination using Administration > Setup > Financial > Tax > Tax Code Determination

and then finally define a Tax Code Administration > Setup > Financial > Tax > Tax Codes

This Tax code has to be used in the Document_Lines template
