Enhancement Request - Invoices and sales tax

Rob,

I am with you. The so-called fixes that they put into each version
of Vantage sometimes create bigger problems than what previous
versions had.

We had to have custom programming to allow us to do something
the "old way" when we went from 4.0 to 5.2.

I am trying to avoid custom programming on this one. That is why I
am turning to this group for help.

We have "tricked" the system for our purposes, but we only have four
tax codes. It makes more work for A/R, but like you said our
customers want one invoice.

This will affect more members of this group; they just don't know it
yet.

If anyone reading this post has worked on a solution for this,
please post.

Thanks,

Doug

We occasionally send rollouts to our customers that involve sending
parts to many locations on one Sales Order. Until version 6.1
(maybe 6.0) you could create ONE invoice for this regardless of the
sales tax location.

Now we get multiple invoices for the same shipment, one for each
sales tax location. Our customers do not like this!

We are on 6.1 and have confirmed that 8.0 is the same.

We have requested the following enhancement:

Summary: AR Get Shipments created 2 invoices for same customer
Book: Change Requests
Request no.: 13587MPS

Enhancement Request

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
AR Get Shipments created 2 invoices for same customer
One of the packers was for a different ship to and it is taxed

SUGGESTED ENHANCEMENT
Packers could have tax or not taxed in earlier Versions and they
would
print on the same Order.
Would like that feature back or at least the option to combine
packers
from same order regardless of tax

Doug Oswald
MIS
Fleetwood Fixtures
Whoa - hold on.

In the last month alone, we have had 2 roll outs to more than 250
locations each. 250 invoices would be absolutely unacceptable, can't
happen, no-way.

We are still on 5.0, trying desperately to find time to get to 6.1 (or
maybe 8.0) but this will put everything on hold and could be the last
straw for continued use of Vantage.

How do I add myself to the enhancement request?

Subject: Enhancement Request - Invoices and sales tax


We occasionally send rollouts to our customers that involve sending
parts to many locations on one Sales Order. Until version 6.1
(maybe 6.0) you could create ONE invoice for this regardless of the
sales tax location.

Now we get multiple invoices for the same shipment, one for each
sales tax location. Our customers do not like this!

We are on 6.1 and have confirmed that 8.0 is the same.

We have requested the following enhancement:

Summary: AR Get Shipments created 2 invoices for same customer

Request no.: 13587MPS

Enhancement Request

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:

SUGGESTED ENHANCEMENT
Packers could have tax or not taxed in earlier Versions and they
would

Would like that feature back or at least the option to combine
packers
from same order regardless of tax

Rob,

Let me be entirely clear. It is not per location, but per sales tax
code. (250 locations with 5 sales tax codes = 5 invoices)

As far as adding your name to the enhancement, I think there is a
way to do it on their website or you can call it in to support I
think.

Doug,

Well, first of all, the 250 locations would create for us about 35
different tax codes, until the Streamlines Sales Tax initiative comes
closer to fruition, at which point it would bring it closer to 200. In
any case, as far as our customers are concerned, they want 1 invoice
(period).

I find it infuriating that Minneapolis would "fix" this functionality
without giving us an option to do it the old way.

Rob.
