Does anyone here have experience of Navision RU. Our company have several branch offices in EU but we also have one in Russia. We are currently using Navision 3.70B but Russia seems to have specific rules and hence there exists a special version called Navision 3.70B RU. From what I understand this is maintained by Microsoft Russia. We have 1 license for this verision but there are some questions still open.
1, From what I understand there is regular updates from Microsoft Russia regarding legal requirements by the Russian goverment. Does this also support 3.70B or is this end-of-support.
2, Have these updates only effect on special tables and reports or do they effect the entire system?
I'm not sure if anyone have answer on these questions, but if not could someone point me in the right direction. Thank you.
Some time ago I worked in a company, which "mother company" was a big international holding with HQ in StPetersbourg, Russia, so I have a slight knowledge of Navision's RU localisation.
It's compatibility with Russian legal requirements is maintained by MS Russia, and localisation includes even Payroll and HR management at very high level, IMHO the only country, where these are not AddOns, but already included in standart. Besides, all the frequent changes in Russian legislation are VERY quickly updated, otherwise they couldn't prepare tax reports to their IRS equivalent - Federal Tax Service and TAX POLICE !!!, yes, they have such governmental institution, who's standart uniform includes life jackets and machine guns...
1. Can't say about v3.7, is it still updated, but seemingly it is not, thus making it unusable, as rules in Russia change frequently.
2. Updates include everything, as in Russia usage of ERP that does not conform with ALL current legal requirements --and taxes are only small part of them-- is illegal and causes serious fees to be paid, so be careful with outdated software versions!
Perhaps I should add to my previous post - do you know how an accounting audit is done in Russia, if company is suspect to smuggling with taxes?
In a couple of minutes office is practically occupied by Tax Police, all employees laid down on the floor faces down, all PCs and hardcopy documents immediately confiscated - it looks more like an anti-terrorist operation
It is not so difficult as can seem from beginning but you will need help from local solutioncenter. i can reccomend www.lean4systems.com
I'm not sure that you can anser these questions, but 4 below is the most critical. If we need to customize the RU-version or if it's like the standard that you need to implement you own documents/reports.
We are investigating the possibilities to run Navision instead of 1C we have some questions about this.
1, From the annual maintenance fee I gather that we have right to upgrade to Dynamics NAV 2009. However we need to know if this also covers a RU-version of Navision?
2, Monthly upgrades from Microsoft Russia regarding changes in legislation. How does this work and how will it effect any customization that we do so that no conflicts will occur.
3, Which versions of Navision or Dynamics NAV are supported by Microsoft and apporved by Russian authorities?
4, Default Reports and Documents, example Shipping Document, Invoice, Pre-Invoice, documents for Export and Import. If we purchase the RU-version of Navision will it work out-of-the-box or are we required to create those ourselfs?
