Naming Issue when uploading Bills

I’m trying to upload a bill.

This page

https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/bills

suggest a field called ‘sales_tax_value

is available, but when I use it, I receive an error saying the field isn’t
known!

Do I use that field for the manual vat amount applied or this one ’
manual_sales_tax_amount’?

I think I’d come to the same conclusion after beating it about a bit. It’s
not very well detailed in the documents unless you realise it’s all
detailed in a separate section! Plus that still doesn’t answer why the api
returned sales_tax_value as an unknown property…On 20 May 2014 09:36, Harry Mills harry@freeagent.com wrote:

Hi Jon,

There are a few different ways to specify sales tax through the API. You
can either set the manual_sales_tax_amount, which is the amount of sales
tax in the bill currency. FreeAgent will calculate what percentage that is
and will return the manual_sales_tax_amount you specified as the
sales_tax_value and the calculated rate as the sales_tax_rate.
Alternatively, you can set the sales_tax_rate to the percentage of the
total value that is sales tax. FreeAgent will calculate the sales_tax_value
for you.

There’s some more information about Sales Tax in the FreeAgent API
available at https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/sales_tax. Though it’s mainly
around invoices and estimates the same applies to bills.
