Transaction Settings

QuickBooks and Dynamics 365 CRM handle some accounting concepts like Discounts, Write-In Products, and Shipping Product differently. To allow for error-free syncing between Dynamics 365 CRM and QuickBooks, we ask to set up the products that need to be used for specific accounting features, namely, Write-In, Line Discount, and Shipping Product.

Write-In Product:

Dynamics 365 CRM allows for adding a write-in product in Quote, Order and Invoice.
QuickBooks however, does not allow entering a line item without specifying the product. To avoid this conflict we request a service type of product to be created in QuickBooks that we can use when transferring write-in lines from CRM Quote, Order and Invoice to QuickBooks. QuickBooks side user needs to create the write-in product in case of US Company they need to select Is Taxable option. If they want to calculate tax on write-in then they should select is taxable true while creating write-in product in QuickBooks.
In case of UK/Canada/Australia based QuickBooks company, user needs to define the Tax code on QuickBooks side as shown below to bring the tax in Dynamics 365 CRM while syncing the product. Thus, based on tax code the CRM will calculate the tax for write-in product on Quote/Order/Invoice.
After this, any write-in line from Dynamics 365 CRM would be carried over in QuickBooks as shown in the screenshots below:

Line Discount product:

Dynamics 365 CRM allows you to specify discounts for line-items by specifying the discount amount in the Discount and Volume Discount fields on the line item form.
QuickBooks on the other hand requires products to be created of the type 'Discount' and add it as a separate line item in the transaction.
With the above mapping, line item discount in Dynamics 365 CRM as shown below;
would be carried over to QuickBooks as shown below.

Shipping product:

Dynamics 365 CRM allows for entering a Shipping product in Quote and Invoice.
Dynamics 365 CRM doesn’t calculate tax on freight amount. Thus, we request a service type of product to be created in QuickBooks that we can use while transferring Freight Amount from Dynamics 365 CRM Quote/Order/Invoice to QuickBooks.
For UK/Canada/Australia, you need to create the Shipping product as a service type product in QuickBooks with the Tax code defined and tax as zero rated.
After this, if you select the Freight Amount in Quotes/Orders/Invoice records of Dynamics 365 CRM it would be carried over in QuickBooks as a Shipping amount.
The product mappings accept the products of the following types in QuickBooks.
Dynamics 365 CRM
QuickBooks Item type
Line Discount Product
Service Product
Write-In Product
Service Product
Shipping Product
Service Product
After selecting the details in Transaction Settings and saving it you will be redirected to Quote feature.

With the help of this option you can select whether you want to automatically calculate the tax for Quote/Order/Invoice in Dynamics 365 CRM or not.
