Handle Destination Tax in RMS
Retail Hero proudly presents a new RMS add-in program: "Ship-T for Dynamics RMS" which addresses the issue of a new streamilined sales tax legislation - so called Destination-Based Sales Tax.
Legislation requires that if a purchased item is shipped from the store by mail, the destination tax needs to be charged. However, when the same customer walks in the store and purchases the item in person, the store's local tax applies. Dynamics RMS provides no such flexibility as it allows to set default taxes on per-customer basis or treat everyone as a walk-away customer - without consideration of whether shipping is included or not.
In real life, the destination-based sales taxes may be many and change frequently. For example, in Washington State alone there's one state tax and over 350 "location code" taxes. See Destination-Based Sales Tax for more information. The location code taxes change every 3 months. If a store which uses RMS , requires both shipped and walk-in orders for the same customers, maintaining such number of different taxes becomes almost impossible.
