When you create a Purchase Order you expect that the Tax be summed up in the Total Net Value, however you see that only the items value is being added and not the tax.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Select Purchase Orders view.
  3. Search for the relevant document and open it.
  4. In the View All navigate to Items tab.
  5. Select Taxes sub-tab.

See that Tax Amount is not reflecting in the Total Net Value.


System is working as expected.

Since the Purchase Order is not an accounting relevant document the value displayed is the Net Value, meaning that is the value without the tax.
The tax will be only displayed in the Supplier Invoice and Journal Entry (that is the entry in the accounting), in which the value displayed will be the Gross Amount, that is the value of the Purchase Order (Net Value) with the Tax Amount summed.
Gross means the total or whole amount, whereas net means what remains from the whole after certain deductions are made.
