Automated global tax determination and compliance

What is NetSuite Tax Management?

NetSuite’s indirect tax management solution, SuiteTax, is a configurable tax engine that delivers end-to-end global tax management. Finance teams can effortlessly generate detailed reports, analyzing transactions down to line-item tax details in real-time. SuiteTax simplifies global tax compliance, saving time, reducing costs and eliminating manual calculations. NetSuite’s built-in tax logic automates determinations of taxability and calculations on every transaction, down to the individual item level.

Any Tax, Anywhere

NetSuite provides monthly tax rate updates for 110 countries and retains historical rate changes. That means SuiteTax automatically applies the right rate to every transaction, every time.

NetSuite Tax Management Features

SuiteTax provides the flexibility to support specific country needs and stays up to date on legislation changes regarding tax calculations and reporting. Finance teams can easily manage in-country transactions — sales tax, VAT or GST — and navigate special tax situations and rules on, for example, intra-EU transactions, 3PL, reverse charges and more. Use the right tax calculation engines for nexuses comprising U.S. sales and use taxes, and override tax details on transactions. And, real-time visibility into your indirect tax position improves cash flow.

Automated VAT/GST Calculation

Say goodbye to manual calculations: NetSuite’s built-in tax logic automatically determines taxability and runs calculations on every transaction, on every item in your account, for every tax jurisdiction. NetSuite validates all your customer and vendor VAT registration numbers, thus calculating the correct taxes for all cross-border goods and services within the EU.

U.S. Sales Tax

Complying with sales taxes across the United States often demands full-time attention from the entire tax team. SuiteTax reduces the massive costs associated with monitoring compliance by delivering automated monthly tax rates for all jurisdictions. You get Zip+4 for greater accuracy along with exemption certificate management. You can even set your own item taxability rules, making it simple to accommodate, for example, sales tax holidays.

Audit Capabilities

Details matter to auditors. Tax calculations by line item, showing each rationale and country-specific compliance text, in any language, are included on invoices. Configurable roles and permissions throughout NetSuite ensure that only authorized users can make changes, such as overriding the tax jurisdiction. Rate change histories are recorded, as are all customer and vendor detail changes.
