Caliach Vision Feature Enhancements up to V1.2000

F0111 - New tax system introduced to accomodate N America

Date: 8 Aug 2002, version: 1.2000, rating: 30, platforms: All

Description: The simple VAT-based sales and purchase tax system has been replaced with a more sophisticated structure that accommodates both Value Added Tax systems and combinational tax systems, typically found in North America. The new system replaces the Zero Default Sales Tax flag in customers with a Tax Regime. Such regimes can contain a number of actual taxes. Parts retain a tax class field but this is now not limited to only 6 fixed classes. Each sales item contains both a tax regime and class and these combined determine the tax(es) payable to any number of tax authorities. Migration from earlier versions of the program automatically configures the new system for VAT working.
