    Oh sorry I mean on AP. but if AR could support withholding with this kind of option it would be great as many clients here in the philippines do post Withholding Tax on Invoice as it is also required by the tax agency here in the Philippines.

    Thanks for your answer. What is the impact of not having this feature in the system right now? Is it affecting only a small number of customers or every single business in the Philippines using Acumatica?

    The impact of not having this feature is making us partners having a hard time to make acumatica accredited by Tax Authorities especially to those partner who has limited capabilities on customizing acumatica, and also it makes some of our customers making a hard time creating adjustments as it is required by the Tax authority so the processing of transaction makes a lot of time through workarounds especially to those customers who has hundred to a thousand transactions per day.

    And yes, it is required to every business in the philippines who withholds taxes..

    To summarize, you are forced to have withholding tax posted at time of invoice release, and Acumatica only posts it when you process payment.

    India has this requirement as well on the AP side.  In India, the government requires all withheld taxes to be accrued and paid on an accrual basis.  On a similar note, they have a requirement to withhold VAT taxes from certain vendors as well...

    Hi folks


    We have this requirement in Africa as well.  I am attaching the process received from one of our clients. Perhaps this will assist.


    It's a very tedious manual process at the moment


    Kind Regards
