GoSystem Tax RS integration (2020 and later)

Show expandable text

Use the following procedures to transfer general ledger account balances, tax code information, and journal entry detail from an Accounting CS client into the client's database within GoSystem Tax RS (v.12-2 and higher). The export file (XML format) contains Accounting CS tax codes that are automatically mapped to the corresponding Tax Return Codes and M-3 Return codes when they are imported.

The tax code assignments that you make in Accounting CS for specific general ledger accounts enable GoSystem Tax RS to carry account balances to the proper lines on the appropriate tax forms.

Use these procedures to transfer a client's general ledger account balances from Accounting CS to GoSystem Tax RS.
