Explain the Categories of General Ledger accounts in SAP

Tax Accounts are exclusively used as tax accounts. The collected tax will be credited into these accounts. While determining these accounts we have to specify the Tax type allowed. Accordingly only the system allows the relative tax type transactions into this account.

Example: Excise Duty paid and excise duty payable accounts.

Tax relevant accounts are subject to tax codes.i.e. System will calculate the taxes from these accounts Example: 1.raw material inventory account. Accounts payable account. Sales account and accounts receivable account. For tax relevant accounts we have to modify the tax type allowed and select the check box post without tax allowed also.

No tax accounts are normal accounts in no way connected to taxes.

Example:rent, etc.
