Object documentationJurisdiction IDs

 

A jurisdiction is a region or area with defined tax rates and transaction fees relevant for shipping charges or other location identification purposes.

 

You use these settings to map jurisdictions you defined in Jurisdictions to entities that are defined by the jurisdiction.

Example Example

For example, if you created a jurisdiction based on a specific tax rate, you would use this feature to map a series of zip codes with this tax rate to this jurisdiction. This allows a store to charge the appropriate tax rate for merchandise it ships out of its own tax jurisdiction.

End of the example.

You can also create jurisdictions and jurisdiction IDs to map store numbers to a specific region to support returns for purchases made at one store to different stores. This feature is used mostly to configure send sale and returns transactions.

Note Note

When you use this feature to map store numbers to a jurisdiction ID in Returns configuration, you must also select set the Tax Table Specified By Store Number setting in Register Parameters configuration. This sets the maximum width of the range fields for branch numbers to 4 characters. (If the branch number is less than 4 characters, you must prefix the branch number with zeros to fill the field width.)

End of the note.
