Tax on natural resources report

This topic explains how to set up and generate the Tax on natural resources (NR Tax) report.

Latvian companies must periodically submit a Tax on natural resources (NR tax) report. This functionality applies only to legal entities in Latvia. Tax must also be calculated on imported or self-produced goods that are used internally. Finally, tax on natural resources must be calculated for packaging materials that are used to package goods that are sold within the reporting period.

Prerequisites

Prerequisite More information
Set up a tax authority.
Set up the ledger posting group for the Natural resources tax.
Set up a settlement period for the Natural resources tax.
Set up sales tax codes for the Natural resources tax.
Set up sales tax groups for the Natural resources tax.
Set up tax groups for the Natural resources tax. Use the Natural resources tax group page to set up tax groups that define the correct sales tax codes, based on the intersection of the tax group and sales tax group for the Natural resources tax.
Set up inventory parameters. On the Inventory and warehouse management parameters page, set the Calculate packing material fees option to Yes.
