021192: Add Supplier Ref to [ Supplier Price Lists | Prices | Supplier / Stock ] grid

021989: Add Country VAT support to SP Ledger

The SP Ledger posting mechanism has been updated to link the selected Tax Rate chosen on a SP Ledger item to the associated Tax Country, as a result of this association, any SP ledgers posted using a Country Tax Rate, will be posted to the Tax Return associated with that country. For example, a customer wishes to post the Irish Import VAT received from their courier for importing goods to their Irish VAT return. They would select their Irish Tax Rate, enter the tax amount and post the SP ledger purchase. This new transaction would then appear on the Irish Vat Return , when the [ Accounts | Tax ] screen is filtered on the "Republic of Ireland" in the country filter.

Note: This will only apply to orders which are 100% dropship direct with a delivered PO.
