The VAT rate decrease has been announced. Currently, are probably a lot of newsletters and other information on how to implement this change in Odoo. First of all, however, we would like to point out that it is difficult, if not impossible, to find a “one size fits all” solution. After all, the type of adaption very much depends on the individual set up. Connections and links have to be considered, price calculation, and, of course, the effect on online shops or POS systems.
We are currently reviewing all our set-ups to discuss the ideal implementation and the necessary steps within the relevant parameters. This clearly shows that there is no such thing as THE standard solution or THE best way for this task. Nevertheless, we can distinguish two basic approaches to tackling this requirement that are feasible almost independently of the individual Odoo versions.
Let’s move on to the next milestone during installation – the re-configuration of existing modules.
We will review the most important and most popular configuration options for each main module. This does not mean, however, that all other options are unimportant. But the number of configurations, meanings, and possible combinations is too comprehensive to discuss all of them without exceeding the scope of this blog.
After quite a few theoretical articles, let’s talk about something more practical for a change. It is not that common that I am involved in a new installation myself unless it is a demo set-up. Usually, we take over an existing project, or one of our consultants or project managers will take responsibility for an installation, with me acting like some sort of “know-it-all” in the background.
Be that as it may, at the beginning of the year, it was time for me to get involved again. Here are my experiences and the key steps I can recommend.
Der Odoo Prozess funktioniert sehr effizient und sehr zuverlässig, wenn die Stammdaten gut angelegt und richtig gepflegt werden. Dies betrifft hauptsächlich Produkte und Partner (Partner können als Kunden und Lieferanten gekennzeichnet werden).
