 Question 3:  How do you cancel the withholding entry to the Tax Authority?
 Question 4: When you post transactions with taxes, the system is not updating the F0018 file. Why?
 Question 5:  Can the system globally update the tax information on the Supplier Master (F0401) and Customer Master (F0301) files with new tax information?
 Question 6:  Can you enter a voucher or invoice with multiple pay items that have different service/tax dates so that pre-July 1, 2010 tax rates and post-July 1, 2010 tax rates can be in effect for the same transaction?
 Question 7:  How does the system determine which tax rate area to use on an invoice or voucher?
 Question 8:  How does the system handle changes to the tax rate area when you process recurring vouchers or invoices? For example, what if you set up the voucher prior to July 1, 2010 and generate recurring vouchers after July 1, 2010?
 Question 9: When you post a receipt that includes a write-off for an invoice that has taxes posted to it, the system creates an adjustment to the tax account. Is there a way to not create that tax adjustment?
 Question 10: For invoices in A/R (or vouchers in A/P) that include tax and a discount, the discount is being calculated on the gross amount, rather than on the gross less the discount amount.  Is there a setting where this can be changed so that the discount can be calculated on the gross less the discount amount?
 Question 11: If the tax rule by company is not set up for a specific company, how does the tax rule apply for tolerances?
 Question 12: We receive error 1480 - Tax Amount may not be Understated - when trying to make a change to the Taxable Amount and the Tax Amount on an A/R Invoice.  Is it possible to get past this error, and make the change?
