Does the Xero API use defaults for things like tax rates, account codes etc?

The Xero API uses very few of the defaults that can be set through the Xero UI. The only defaults it will use are the tax rate from the account code if the tax rate isn't sent, and the description, account code and price on inventory items (but not tax rate). All other information must be specified in your call.
