It is understandable that an individual VAT field (or GST in some countries) is required for every vendor because some small vendors do not incur this charges and some oversea vendors may have difference rate.
However, why is there a need to have an individual VAT field for every customer since my company will be charging the same rate for every customer, be they are small or big, local or oversea?
Is there any exceptional case or reason for putting a VAT field for every customer? I am asking this because we are thinking of hard-coding VAT rate into every customer card to improve productivity (one less field to fill up) and avoid mistake (accidently selecting the wrong value)
Hardcoding is always a bad idea. Unless you are adding a new field to the setup table called "Default VAT value" or something and it populates that field when creating a customer. or you could set the InitValue property of the field in the table to ahve it autopopulate when creating a new customer.
Maybe it's an idea to use the function "Apply template" to create a new Customer!
