How to create LEDES98B files with Non-US Taxes
Enter line items as usual. Then enter one or more extra rows in the file to contain tax amounts. Create one tax row in the file for each combination of matter / line item type / Non-US Tax category that is included in the invoice. In addition to the regular data requirements for LEDES files, note the following additional requirements for each Non-US Tax row:
- If a category relates to Fees, use value "F" in field EXP/FEE/INV_ADJ_TYPE and put the Non-US Tax code for fees in field LINE_ITEM_TASK_CODE.
- If a category relates to Expenses, use value "E" in field EXP/FEE/INV_ADJ_TYPE and put the Non-US Tax code for expenses in field LINE_ITEM_EXPENSE_CODE.
- In either case, put the total tax amount for that matter and category into field LINE_ITEM_TOTAL.
