How to map your simPRO tax codes to control codes in Xero: Xero has decided to change some of its tax codes. This will be done in a new version at the end of March 2013. Two codes are dumped and 3 new codes are introduced. These tax codes are used for sales to customers subject to VAT in the EC. These can be goods or services. If you do not associate tax codes, Xero uses the tax code defined on the nominal account in Xero, not the tax code defined in simPRO. It is important to note that historical transactions with the codes, exempt from GST and without GST are not changed. Only transactions made after the update or that have not yet been “approved” will display the new tax codes. Review any transactions you created as repeating invoices or as drafts after the update to make sure they are correct. These codes are used for the purchase of goods from suppliers established in the EC. These tax codes are used for goods and services with standard valuation, e.B repairs and maintenance, telephone, rent. Xero abandons 2 tax codes at the end of March – “GST Exempt” and “No GST”.
These are replaced by 3 new codes: “BAS Excluded”, “GST-free fees” and “GST-free capital”.
