Infor M3 Webinar: Consumer Use Tax 101: What's all the fuss about for manufacturers and distributors?

Frank Petrasio 0 160 Article rating: 5.0

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.

Date/Time: Wednesday, October 14th 10:00 a.m. CDT / 11:00 a.m. EDT
Topic: Consumer Use Tax 101: What's all the fuss about for manufacturers and distributors?

Your business makes a purchase and you notice the seller doesn’t collect sales tax. So it must be tax free, right? Wrong. Consumer use tax may still apply, and if you’re not actively tracking use tax obligations, you could be making a costly mistake.

Put simply, use tax is owed on a purchase when the seller does not collect sales tax, or when the use of the product/service (or the location of consumption) results in more tax being owed. Sound complicated? It is, and that’s what makes use tax one of the most mismanaged compliance issues for businesses.

We brought in our partners at Avalara to dive in. For this session, learn more about consumer use tax, what it is, and when your business may be on the hook to pay it.

  • The events that can trigger consumer use tax requirements
  • The most common consumer use tax management challenges
  • The impact of economic nexus laws on consumer use tax
  • How your business can step up compliance to avoid being audited


This will be one ‘use-ful’ webinar that you won’t want to miss!

What will you do when your ERP is no longer supported in 2021?

This is a confusing time for many companies with respect to their ERP system.

"Will I still be able to run my current version?"
"What happens if I want to stay on my version?"
"What options do I have?"

Crossroads RMC is here to help you sort through the confusion and get you to a place where you feel confident about your ERP future.

Let's get started with how we can help. I want Crossroads RMC to…

  • Conduct an Infor ERP Utilization Review – Should I consider moving to the latest version of LX in the cloud, or on prem? If I don’t, what are my options?
     
  • Set up an Infor ERP Demo System – I want to give my employees a chance to try out the latest version to see if it would be of benefit.
     
  • Train My Employees – I want to ensure that we’re operating based on best practices.
     
  • Integrate My ERP to External Systems – My company uses separate systems that don’t talk to one another and that is really inefficient.
     
  • Brainstorm With Me – I’m not sure what to do. I need to talk through some scenarios with someone who has been there, done that.
     
  • Support My Users – I’m short-staffed. I may upgrade, or I may stay where I’m at. Either way, I could use someone to handle our ERP issues. Please help!

Infor will no longer support LX or BPCS on IBM i 7.2 after April 30, 2021

George Moroses 0 3208 Article rating: 5.0

On September 10, 2019, IBM® announced the end of support of IBM i 7.2 effective April 30, 2021. In line with IBM’s support policy, Infor will no longer support LX, BPCS, SSAEAM, PRMS, BOSS and related products on IBM i 7.2 after April 30, 2021.

All releases, patches, and solutions are expected to be delivered and compiled for IBM i 7.3 effective May 1, 2021. These deliverables should install and function on version 7 release 3 (IBM i 7.3) and above. This will require that your operating system be at a minimum release level of IBM i 7.3.

This policy extends to other Infor LX related technologies including WebTop, System i Workspace (SIW), and Infor Development Framework (IDF).

If you have not done so already, we recommend you start planning and completing your upgrade to IBM i 7.3 or above prior to April 30, 2021. After this date, if you register a support call with Infor Support, and your application still runs on IBM i 7.2, you may be requested to upgrade to a supported version of the IBM i operating system.

In addition, we invite you to log on to Infor Concierge to view and download important information regarding Infor LX, BPCS, and Infor SSAEAM. General KB Articles have been created to proactively provide you with information regarding this Announcement (1397381) and the Infor BPCS/LX Product Lifecycle Policy (1947086).

Infor LN & Baan Integrations:

It's okay, you can admit it. You have spreadsheets and separate databases that you’re keeping on the side that may or may not be tied to Baan/LN.

Tips:  LX / BPCS / M3

If you plan to use Infor WebTop, the WebTop version 4.7 or above is required when running LX 8.4. Also, acquire and install the latest WebTop 4.7 patches from Infor Xtreme prior to running LX WebTop. WebTop 4.7 can be applied to your existing environments before you install 8.4.0. If this is completed before installing LX 8.4 then the LX install will take care of much of the Webtop server configuration automatically, including installing the LX Webtop metadata, updating WEB_ENV, and including the Webtop Platform library in the INLIBL data area as part of the environment setup. If you choose to install WebTop after the LX 8.4 installation is completed, the “Infor LX 8.4 Webtop 4.7 Configuration Guide” will guide you through all the configuration steps to set up Webtop for your LX environment.
