This page explains the process of creating a new Customs Invoice report.

When creating a new Customs Invoice the following fields have been added by default, all are pulling the information from the stock item's [ Stock | Detail | Accounting ] screen:

  • The Harmonisation Code

  • Country of Manufacture (Origin)
