When I add a column for tax on my invoices it adds the tax agency name but not the percentage. How can I add this (as it's a legal requirement)?

Hello, hello150.

 

I can provide you the step-by-step process in adding the percentage amount to show them on your invoices. Let me walk you through the process.

 

  1. Click Taxes in the left panel and choose the Tax Agency from the drop-down arrow.
  2. From the Edit Sample Tax drop-down arrow, click Edit settings.
  3. Add the percentage amount right next to the tax agency name.
  4. Hit Save.
  5. The Tax agency name and their corresponding percentage will now show on your invoices.

Hello,

 

Thank you for this info. I see that changing the name doesn’t result in all my previously sent invoices including the 21% figure on them, even though paid invoices are updated if I change the invoice template, for example.


It’s not obvious that you are supposed to type the percentage in the tax agency name, especially as when I am creating the invoices, the percentage is noted next to the tax name - it just doesn’t show up on the invoice sent to clients. I now need this added for my accountant. How can I do this for paid invoices?


Thank you.

Thanks for keeping in touch with us, hello150.

 

Allow me to share more insights about sending an invoice with a tax agency and a percentage on it. The steps shared by my colleague is the best way to combine the tax agency and the percentage. However, when sending the invoice, the details will not be attached to the sales form.
