We work through these tax issues in Australia too. The first question you need to consider is whether you want to make the entire work order tax exempt or have the flexibility to do it on a line by line basis.


Let's consider the simple situation that you have asked for where the entire order is taxed or not taxed. Now it depends where you calculate the tax. Let's assume you add it on to the (untaxed) subtotal of the order. So you would have calculation fields like:


Subtotal = Sum ( Items::LineTotal )

Tax = Subtotal * TaxAmount

OrderTotal = Subtotal + Tax


Add another field which will be a number field called TaxExempt. This will be set up with a checkbox with a value list consisting of one value - 1. So when it is checked, it has a value of 1, meaning that the order is tax exempt.


So now we update the tax calculation:


Tax = Subtotal * If ( not TaxExempt; TaxAmount )


See how that works?
