Configure Tax Code Settings

Objective

To turn Procore's tax codes feature ON and configure its company level settings. 

Background

In Procore's Project Financials tools, you can set up one or more tax codes in Procore's Company Admin tool. This provides your Project Financials users with the ability to apply a specific tax to line items on a Schedule of Values (SOV). To turn this feature ON in your company's Procore account, your company's Procore Administrator uses the steps below.

After creating your company's tax codes, project users can apply the code to the SOV line items on a contract, funding, change order, and invoice. To calculate the tax amount, Procore applies the tax code to the line item amount, including financial markup, to determine the tax amount. Procore then adds the tax amounts from each line item to determine an unrounded sum and then rounds that sum to determine the total tax amount.

Tax code fields appear in the schedule of values and on PDF forms. You can also see the total tax amount on these PDF forms, broken out from the grand total. In addition, you can set up multiple tax codes that can be applied to line items that require different tax rates.

Invoice PDFs also reflect the tax. The Summary page of the PDF will add:

  • Tax applicable to this payment
  • Current payment due including tax
