The normal taxes adds the amount of tax to total i.e subtotal=100 tax %=10, then transaction total is 110. I want to create a tax that substract the amount from subtotal i.e subtotal=100 tax %=10, then transaction total is 90. How can i create this?

Just put a dash (minus) sign.  For instance, instead of writing 0.1 you write -0.1

This will deduct the amount.

Good luck

Thank you Eva

Just add minus: -10% or -0.10

If you create the Tax from the Accounting/ configuration/ Taxes under the Tax Computation Tab: fill 0.10 in the Amount field and -1.00 in the Base Code sign field.

I have followed the above steps. i have created a tax with name "TDS" enter base code sign=-1.00, Amount field, i unable to find it in the screen. I thought this is required field under "Tax Type", i have given 0.10000. But amount not deducting from total. if i change the 10 % o.10 to -0.10 its deducting. Am i face any problem in accounting system if i change like this?

You are noy facing any problem. Yes it's this field (under the Tax Type), And i think it's a bug that makes the name of the field not appearing in the view.

The exact name of the field is "Tax Amount"
