There is a great deal of noise in the business community about the importance of digital transformation in the Food & Beverage Services sector, but what does this mean to you?

Manage complexity, no matter your compliance or business requirements
MYOB Advanced and Star have a history of managing the complex business requirements of the Australian based Food & Beverage Services business. For example, WET tax. If your business makes wine, imports wine into Australia or is a wholesaler of wine, your Business Software or ERP System will have to account for Wine Equalisation Tax (WET).
In MYOB, Advanced customers and suppliers are linked to Tax Zones, and inventory items are linked to Tax Categories. This combination allows a business to sell the same inventory item to a wholesaler or via the cellar door using a different tax calculation method allowing maximum flexibility to calculate the WET for both wholesale. This is just one example of how MYOB Advanced and Star can help you better manage your business complexity.
