Map sales tax and shipping on bills to general ledger accountsLast updated on 06/17/2022
If you use Payables to track spending in your business, you can map sales tax and shipping on bills to general ledger (GL) accounts to ensure accuracy when you export to QuickBooks Desktop.
Note: If your account is connected to Intacct, then this mapping is only required for non-PO bills that are created directly from the Accounting > Bills screen (instead of bills converted from a receipt).
