SuiteTax will automatically update tax rate changes across 100 countries so that manufacturers don’t need to manually update it, or worry about incorrect taxes.

In India, this new Tax engine will generate GST-based tax reports, in Europe, it will do the VIES validation for EU Tax registration number and in the US, it will automatically create tax records such as tax agency, tax types, tax rate updates and more.

In short, leave all your tax-worries to the new TaxSuite from NetSuite, and relax.

Update #2: More Control Over Company Payments

Accounts payable process becomes more streamlined, and more controlled with this new update. Now, the management can set up an approval process for any type of payments: be it vendors payment or employee salaries.

Update #3: Improved Productivity With Merchandise Hierarchy

Merchandise hierarchy, which was introduced in the 2018.2 version, has now been enhanced with better usability, and powerful features.

Merchandise hierarchy enables the manufacturer to make better decisions, by using data in an optimal way. Extracting CSV reports becomes easier, description of items will be now more visible, and more updates have been implemented.

Update #4: Supply Chain Snapshot Enhanced
