Set Up VAT Categories

To use the electronic VAT declaration, you must set up a VAT category code for all XML elements in the electronic VAT declaration.

You must set up all of the possible category and subcategory combinations that represent an XML element in the electronic VAT declaration. Then, you can map the VAT statement data directly to an XML element.

  1. Choose the Search for Page or Report icon, enter Elec. Tax. Decl. VAT Categories, and then choose the related link.

  2. On the Elec. Tax. Decl. VAT Categories page, choose the New action.
