Re: Is the term Landed costs correctly used in Odooby
As a general rule of thumb I would recommend to Odoo developpers and community to always refer to generally accepted terms and standards, - definitions and ontologies - that are used on an international basis. This is applies principally to the financial and accounting domains, including reportings and taxes.
These standards are applied in every country, with appropriate and validated translations.
They are also implemented by the competitors' softwares.
This will improve the understanding of Odoo functionnalities by every users.
It seems that the definition of landed costs in Odoo differs from the standard usage.
2. Landed cost definition:
Landed Cost is the total cost of a product once it has arrived at the buyer’s door. This list of components that are needed to determine landed costs include the original cost of the item, all brokerage and logistics fees, complete shipping costs, customs duties, tariffs, taxes, insurance, currency conversion, crating costs, and handling fees. Not all of these components are present in every shipment, but all that are must be considered part of the landed cost.
- (business) The end cost of an internationally shipped item. This includes purchase price, freight, insurance, and other costs and may sometimes include dutiesand taxes.
