Tax Statement Export Checklist

  1. Ensure you have entered Tax Activity number for all business locations you operate from Settings > Business Locations. Simply click edit location and enter Activity number.

  2. Ensure that all suppliers which you claim the input tax from has TIN number. Go to Contacts > Suppliers Edit and check Tax Number field. Set it if not done already.

Input Tax Statement Common Issues

  1. No TIN number for row xxx.

    Solution: Ensure that the supplier TIN number exists. By following #2 from above checklist

  2. Value cannot be null. Parameter name: source

    Solution: This is a generic error some customers have faced during import. When we export Input Tax Statement all values are normally exported without a limited decimal place for accuracy. One of the solution is to make all values in GST charged and Total Excluding Tax to nearest 2 decimal places. You can do this by these 2 columns, and clicking format and then choosing Number format and 2 decimal places as shown in below screenshot. If this step doesn't help, contact us and we will help.

  3. Input Tax: Row X - The invoice date must be presented in the extended format, with the month expressed in English as 'dd MMMM yyyy'. For example, it should appear as "01 January 2020"

    Solution: Change date format to dd mmmm yyyy and make it in plain text. Let us know if this doesnt help and we will help you
