Brazilian Localization. This module consists in: - Generic Brazilian chart of accounts - Brazilian taxes such as:
- Tax Situation Code (CST) required for the electronic fiscal invoicing (NFe)
The field tax_discount has also been added in the account.tax.template and account.tax objects to allow the proper computation of some Brazilian VATs such as ICMS. The chart of account creation wizard has been extended to propagate those new data properly.
It's important to note however that this module lack many implementations to use OpenERP properly in Brazil. Those implementations (such as the electronic fiscal Invoicing which is already operational) are brought by more than 15 additional modules of the Brazilian Launchpad localization project https://launchpad.net/openerp.pt-br-localiz and their dependencies in the extra addons branch. Those modules aim at not breaking with the remarkable OpenERP modularity, this is why they are numerous but small. One of the reasons for maintaining those modules apart is that Brazilian Localization leaders need commit rights agility to complete the localization as companies fund the remaining legal requirements (such as soon fiscal ledgers, accounting SPED, fiscal SPED and PAF ECF that are still missing as September 2011). Those modules are also strictly licensed under AGPL V3 and today don't come with any additional paid permission for online use of 'private modules'.
