Posting Tire Tax to a Repair Order

Autosoft -

To post tire tax to a repair order, you must make sure that the Integrated Service Sales Parameters in Accounting Setup specify which General Ledger accounts the tire tax should post to and that the Operating Parameters for each inventory source specifies the default tire tax per tire. When you pull the repair order on the Review and Print screen, the system automatically displays the tax in the Tire Tax field. The tax prints separately on the repair order. When the Service Department performs the Daily R/O Update, the system posts the tire tax to the General Ledger account specified in the Integrated Service Sales Parameters in the Accounting module.

Step 1. From the Parts Inventory menu, select Service Sales. The Service R/O Parts menu opens. 


Step 2. Click Line Parts. The Service R/O Parts screen opens. If you do not integrate with Service Writing, this screen automatically opens when you click Service Part Sales on the Parts Inventory menu.


Step 3. Pull the repair order by clicking the R/O List button and selecting the repair order from the list or by simply typing the RO Number in the R/O field.

Step 4. The line number (LN) automatically populates. In the Part Number field, type “TIRE TAX” as the part number. For the system to calculate the tax, you must type the word “tire” and the word “tax” separated by a space. The system will not recognize any other entry as tax.

Step 5. The Price field automatically populates with the default tire tax entered for the current inventory source.

Step 6. In Qty, type the number of tires that need to be taxed. (The system will multiply the tire tax by this quantity to calculate the tire tax, but the total tire tax will not display on this screen.)

Step 7. Type the repair number for the repair that requires the tire tax. The repair type defaults to the repair type set for the selected repair.

Step 8. Click Save to save the repair order.
