SQL Script To Copy Tax Setup To A New Company

Microsoft Dynamics GPWhile helping a client configure some new companies recently, we needed to create the tax schedules in each of the companies; unfortunately, there were about 30 tax schedules and 4 companies which needed them. To do manually, or even with a macro, was going to take a while, so I took a few minutes out to see if it was going to be possible to run the update using a SQL script.

The below is what I came up with and appeared to work fine for the companies we tested it in. One item to note, is that the Account Index is set to 0 so all companies do need the tax nominal account entering once they have been copied.

There are two variables at the top which will need to be configured before running the script: @SourceCompany and @DestinationCompany.

If you do use this script, then please make sure you have a good backup before running it and also test afterwards.
