How to map 2 Sales Taxes in Bookeo
If you have set up 2 Sales Taxes in Bookeo, for example a Federal and a State Tax, the 2 taxes will correspond to one single Tax Rate with 2 components in Xero.
If for some services or customers you apply only 1 tax in Bookeo - for example only the Federal or the State tax -, you will have to create a new mapping in Bookeo, for the 1 tax to the 1 tax in Xero (not the 2 together)
Map sales without Sales Taxes
You will also have to set a mapping for sales where no taxes is applied. In this case, do NOT tick any tax in the Bookeo section, and select the relevant Tax Rate in Xero
