You expect that the deferred input or output tax from the Swiss Chart of Accounts is available in the US Charts of Accounts but, you get an error when posting a Source Document:

'Account Determination is missing for item type Deferred Output Tax. Specify Account Determination in Chart of Accounts DEF: DEF Chart of Accounts and Account Determination Profile <DEF>. Column Path Tax->Output Tax->Deferred Output Tax, Item Type Deferred Output Tax.'
(where DEF represents the respective Chart of Accounts, in our example the US Charts of Accounts)

Specify Account Determination in Chart of Accounts DEF: DEF Chart of Accounts and Account Determination Profile <DEF>.
