You then set the appropriate 'CBS' type for each purchase and/or sales contact. In the order process, the contact settings are copied to the goods receipt and packing slip entry layouts. You can still change the 'CBS' type there if necessary.

  • Add goods code

    To be able to submit the 'CBS' declaration, you have to create goods codes. You can then enter these goods codes for the articles. The goods code is an 8-digit code from the nomenclature which can be retrieved from the statistics office (‘CBS’) among others, (the Combined Nomenclature). This code is identical in all EU member states.
