Kathy Barthelt 0 858 Article rating: 5.0

Serial and Lot are additional characteristics/properties of Items that can be used to uniquely or collectively identify and track the item along with its Item code.

Infor LN & Baan Tip: Can You Backflush An Item If Estimated Quantity is Zero?

Kathy Barthelt 0 817 Article rating: 5.0

Yes, you can backflush an item with an estimated quantity = 0.00 if you haven't already backflushed the order. For example, you had an order with one component, you reported the quantity at the operation or order level and ran the backflush. Now you realize you need another component added. In this example, the order has already been backflushed, so if you were to add a second component, run backflushing, nothing would happen.

Backflushing is based on the 'quantity to backflush' in report operations or report orders complete. When the quantity is backflushed....

Understanding Taxability Rules Is Key To Sales Tax Compliance

Avalara for Infor LN | Baan | Infor LX | BPCS

Crossroads RMC 0 601 Article rating: 5.0

Product taxability may seem straightforward because there are generally only two options: taxable or exempt. Yet that seemingly simple contrast fails to truly capture the inherent complexity of sales tax compliance. In fact, it’s a multistep process that starts with determining where a business has sales tax nexus. Knowing whether the products or services one sells are taxable or exempt is critical to the compliance process, from start to finish.

The good news is that you don’t have to be a tax expert, nor do you need to stay up on the latest tax rules and regulations in each state or country where you do business. Avalara handles all of this for you and Crossroads RMC provides the integration to Infor LN, Infor LX, Baan, and BPCS to make staying compliant a no-brainer.
