Default 3rd-party QB add-on to calculate sales tax

[Duplicated from email support]

Hello,

We are using QB enterprise 14.0 US version, up to 30 users.
We use Citrix servers to connect to QB from the cloud.


We are launching QB in our subsidiary in Russia. In Russia, some items are taxed by either 10 or 18%, depending on the size of products.


In QB, it seems we don't have the ability to set a tax % per item. Only taxable or non-taxable.


We would like to find an easy way to calculate total price on invoices, based on item prices and tax rates.


Can you please give me more information regarding your 3rd-party add-on that may meet our expectations? Is it compatible with QB hosted?


Best regards,
Anthony P.

Anthony,

> ... set a tax % per item.

The way this would be handled with FormCalc SST is...

1. Associate a sales tax rate with each Item, as a custom field entry.

2. Set all items to "non-taxable" so QuickBooks will not attempt to calculate sales tax for them.

Alternatively, if only a couple of sales tax rates are involved you might prefer to allow QuickBooks to calculate the tax on items involving one of the two tax rates, and let FormCalc SST calculate the tax on the other items-- in which case, only those other items would need to have a sales tax rate entered in a custom field.

3. Customize your form's template to display the custom field, as well as another field such as Other 1 to hold the result of each line's sales tax calculation. (You may want to apply a different customization template to the form prior to printing or e-mailing copies for customers.)

4. Set up FormCalc SST formulas to calculate sales tax by multiplying the custom fields tax rate by the Amount field, and put the result in Other 1. Another FormCalc SST formula would automatically total all the Other 1 values to calculate a sales-tax total.

> Is it compatible with QB hosted?

Yes and no. We have some users using it in a hosted environment, while others have had difficulty making it work with their particular host. The only way to know would be to actually try/test it in your environment.

FormCalc SST is a free download ( http://www.goflagship.com/dnloads/sstdownld.htm ) in which works in trial mode for 30 days, so there would be no financial cost involved in testing it.
