Applying DST to your Media Campaigns within ADvendio is an automated, synchronised process. DST can be set up currently based on the selling country and requires a few configuration steps before it can be used.
All steps below must be completed before DST can be used and applied within your org.
Steps to follow
In order to set up the correct calculation of DST for your Media Campaigns and Invoices you have do the following steps:
1. Prepare Picklists/Record Types - Update Customers Only
Please ensure that the picklist "Taxable Amount Type" was set to the relevant base amount ( also relevant for VAT calculation).
The field is present at the objects:
Invoice Item and
If you set the Default of these picklists to none you can alternatively use the following Feature Setting to set a Standard value:
Feature Setting Name
Feature Setting Name
N2 or N3
2. Manage Custom Setting - DST
As mentioned above, you can create DST settings only on the selling country basis. Based on the number of selling countries you will need to create the custom settings.
Enter a Name for this DST information, for instance, use "Austria_2022".
Enter the Rate in %, for instance, use "5" or "10".
Use the Seller Country field to determine the country for the DST Rate to be applicable. If you only sell from one country this is the only setting you will need to create.
Enter Valid From as well as Valid to, if this DST setting is valid in a specific time frame.
Click the button Save.
Please make sure that the entered values for Seller Country are identical to those in the Company Profile / Legal Entity. Otherwise the system will not be able to match the correct DST Rate!
3. Define your Seller's Country
3a. Legal Entities
You only have to do this step, if you are using legal entities. Otherwise proceed with the next step.
Navigate to the object Legal Entities. Open all your records and enter the
Country ISO Code (recommended!) or alternatively use the free text field
3b. Salesforce Organisation's country
If you are not using Legal entities please make sure that you have entered a country in your Salesforce Organisation as the system will choose your Salesforce Org's country/state as Seller Country. You will find this under Setup > Company Information. Make sure to fill the Address field Country with the 2 digit Alpha ISO Code of your country.
