In addition to specifying the base data that is defined for the packaging material, you must specify packaging-material-fee base data. To calculate fees and print reports, you must also set up packaging-material-fee license numbers for your customers.

For each type of material, define the period of validity, price per material, currency, and unit.

If the customers pay the packaging material fees, specify the customers' packaging-material-fee license numbers in the Customers form. When a license number has been assigned to a customer, the packaging material fees are calculated automatically when sales orders are invoiced. After invoicing, the Calculate fee check box is cleared in the Packing material transactions form, because you do not have to calculate and print a report. You can print the packaging material weights on the invoice, and inform the customers that they pay the fees.

If your company pays the packaging material fees, do not specify the customer license numbers. After invoicing, the Calculate fee check box is selected in the Packing material transactions form. This indicates that the fees are calculated when a report is created. You can print the weights on the invoice, and indicate that your company pays the fees.

You can print the packaging material weights on the invoice, and indicate who pays the packaging material fees. The weights are summarized by packaging code.
