What is Constraint Error "Tax Name must be unique per company!"?

When I want to assign my company to my Chart of Account Template I get this:

Constraint Error "Tax Name must be unique per company!"

Would someone help with this please?


You have to give different name for your taxes for example (20% Purchases, 20% Sales, 20% Sales Categ 1, ....) Not (20%, 20% in the names) this is the constraint, I need also to know why they implement this contraint (perhaps technical limitation) !!

In openerp the tax name has a unique constrain ie, u cannot give same name to  2 different taxes for a perticular company 3

You should give another name to tax rename tax or tax u r trying to create is already there in ERP
