We can find different sections here. Let us have a look at the key sections.

They are Taxes, Currencies, Customer Invoices, Customer Payments, Vendor Bills, Vendor Payments, Bank and Cash, Fiscal Periods, Analytics, and Reporting.

Now it's time for us to check each section and learn the functionalities that we can set up using these sections.


The first section here is Taxes.

Underneath Taxes, we can find Default Taxes. 

We can set the tax for our company with the help of default tax. Here, in the default tax, we have Sales Tax and Purchase Tax and both are 15 percent.

The Tax Return periodicity column helps us to set the time period for tax return payment. This can be set by seeing the periodicity. WE have options like monthly, annually, semi-annually, every four-month, etc.

The image given above indicates that we can set reminders for our tax return. We can also manage the journal where we have to enter the tax return details. Another option we have here is to configure your tax accounts.

This is the method that helps us to decide how total tax amounts are calculated in Orders and invoices. 

We can choose Round per Line when the product prices are fixed including the tax amount.

Another feature we have here is Cash Basis which allows the user to configure taxes using the cash basis.  Another feature is the fiscal country setting.  Once a country is selected here, we will get tax reports for that particular country alone.



Underneath Currencies, we have subsections like main currency, multi-currencies, automatic currency rates. 

Main Currency

This segment helps us to select the main currency used by our company.  Suppose we are running a US-based company the main currency will be USD.

This will help us to Post Exchange differences in different journals, gain accounts, and loss accounts. 

Automatic currency rates

Another option we have under currencies is to set automatic currency rates.

This helps us to update exchange rates automatically once we set the service bank, interval, and next run.

The next run option can be used when we set the interval manually.  That means we can set the date when we have to decide the exchange rate.

This helps us to set warnings when invoicing specific customers
