Default taxes

Default Taxes define which taxes are automatically selected when there is no other indication about which tax to use. For example, Flectra prefills the Taxes field with the Default Taxes when you create a new product or add a new line on an invoice.

Flectra fills out the Tax field automatically according to the Default Taxes


Fiscal Positions take the Default Tax into account. Therefore, if a Fiscal Position is applied to an invoice, Flectra applies the related tax instead of the Default Taxes, as mapped in the Fiscal Position.


To change your Default Taxes, go to Accounting ‣ Configuration ‣ Settings ‣ Taxes ‣ Default Taxes, select the appropriate taxes for your default Sales Tax and Purchase Tax, and click on Save.
