Canadian users designate their province and configure province-specific settings when starting their CosmoLex trial. The region-specific accounting rules will automatically apply and can be disabled.
Selecting Your Province
To select your province:
- From the left navigation panel, click Setup.
- From atop the Setup left navigation, click Firm Settings.
- From the tabs atop the Firm Settings screen, click Regional.
- Under Regional Settings, check the box to Enable Canada specific account rules.
The Enable Canada Specific Settings message box displays.
- From the Province drop-down, click your province.
- Click Apply Province Specific Settings.
The Settings Applied message box displays the settings applied based on your province selection. You can also access this information via the orange details icon to the right of the edit pencil.
- Click OK.
The system updates, returning you to the Financial tab.
As mentioned, this setting affects account tax calculations as well as other defaults. For that reason, once set up, we do not recommend changing this setting going forward.
