2158919 - Nederlands Chain Liability


Chain Liability is a legal requirement for Netherlands. This is particularly needed if we have a company which has sub contracting as part of their business. The company in this case has to ensure (on behalf of the sub contractor) the income tax and social insurance amount from the services obtained through the sub contract is paid to the authorities either directly or through a specific account maintained by the sub contractor for the payments. We support the entire end to end functionality from Supplier Invoicing in ByDesign Release 1505 onwards. What is not available is the following -

- Direct payment to tax authorities.

- Entering Chain Liability data in Purchase Order.

- Support of chain liability in ERS invoices created automatically from Purchase orders.

- Reporting for Chain Liability.
