Dealing with taxes is easy in Edens. You can configure the required tax rates and add necessary legal information such as the tax ID to the invoice.
When applying tax rates, Edens calculates the total tax amount per tax rate and summarizes it in a table under invoice items.
Go to the “Workspace” > “Taxes” page to view a list of tax rates. Tax rates vary by country, region, city, etc. For example, if you operate in Europe, you might want to create a catalog of tax rates for OSS VAT.
You can create as many tax rates as you need. A tax rate can’t be updated or deleted after creation to prevent invoicing problems, but you can archive it.
To create a tax rate, you’ll need to:
Give it a name
The name appears on your customer’s invoice and is usually a short name that describes the specific type of tax, such as “VAT” or “California state sales tax.”
Set a percentage
The percentage is a number that represents the tax percentage to be collected, for example, 20%.
Choose whether it's inclusive or exclusive tax
Tax rates can be categorized as either exclusive or inclusive. An exclusive tax is not included in the invoice subtotal, whereas an inclusive tax is. The table below illustrates how a 25% tax rate modifies the total amount due, depending on whether it is exclusive or inclusive.
|€5.00 + €1.25
|€4.00 + €1.00 (already included in the total)
Using multiple tax rates
You have the option to apply tax rates to individual invoice items or set a default tax rate for all line items in an invoice. However, if you set tax rates on both an invoice item and the invoice itself, the rates specified for the invoice will not apply to that specific invoice item.
Discounts are applied before tax.
When applying tax rates to an invoice, the tax amounts are aggregated into a table under invoice items. This table shows the total tax amount for each tax rate used throughout the entire invoice, and also includes the amount without taxes applied.
