Re: Multiple fiscal positions on partners


*Lorenzo Battistini*

could you drop some comments on this from an italian perspective? I hope to
fetch best practices from around the world!
I've seen you've done quite a bit of coding in your localization, but on
the other hand there are some modules rediliy available...

- Fiscal Classification
- Fiscal Position
- Fiscal Position Rule

Whith some amendemnds this could serve your case quite generically... But
maybe we're missing something.

*Mille Grazie*
