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

Frank Petrasio 0 7 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!

Infor LX & BPCS Tip of the Week: Installing WebTop Over LX

George Moroses 0 34 Article rating: 5.0

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.

Infor LN & Baan Tip of the Week: Wrap Toolbar Option

Kathy Barthelt 0 164 Article rating: 5.0

The Wrap Toolbar option has been added. You can use this option to wrap toolbar buttons to the next line if it becomes too narrow to add on the same line. If this option is selected, every session has the option available in the Personalization menu. This gives the user the possibility to change the wrapping state of the toolbar per session. This setting is saved as a personalization. You can configure this option in the Tools Parameters (ttaad0100m000) session and for specific users in the User Data Template (ttams1110m000) session.

Note: LN UI 12.2.6 or later is required.

EGLi users who maintain journal entries in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet can use this utility to upload journal entries to EGLi. The Journal Upload installation program adds an Add-Ins tab to Microsoft Excel. This tab includes options to connect to the server where EGLi is installed and to open a spreadsheet template to use for manual journal entry. When the spreadsheet is complete, the Add-Ins tab is used to upload the spreadsheet.

To install Journal Upload:

  1.  The Power-Link Installation page has links to the Client installation programs and a link to download and install the Journal Upload utility. To access this page, use this link with your own values for system and NetLinkport: http://system:NetLinkport/Installs/ClientInstall/Install.html  where system is the server where IDF is installed and NetLinkport is the Net-Link port, typically 36001
