Deferred Service Tax transfer Functionality

1. Overview:

Deferred tax transfer is the process wherein the tax on sales or purchases is reported only when the vendor invoice amount is paid or the customer invoice amount is received.

Example: Service Tax Transfer – From Interim to Final Account:

When the vendor invoice is booked, the service tax is calculated and taken to the Service Tax (Credit available) account {Current asset}. Once the payment for the vendor is made, a special program called deferred tax transfer program has to be run, which will transfer the amount from this intermediate or deferred account to the final or target account.

Transaction codes used:

FTXP                      Creation of deferred and target tax codes
