What have customers done to tackle this? I'd like to start a discussion on implementation advice, challenges and pearls of wisom that people are willing to share. Our approach;
- Setup of separate Tax Rates which are linked to Offset Taxes
- Eligble suppliers flagged with Registration Status, and Default Tax Classification Code. Tick the 'Allow Offset Taxes' checkbox
- Eligible customer contracts flagged with the correct Default Tax Classification Code depending on end user/intemediary user confirmation
