Services and Inventory Items within Oracle NetSuite in Brazil


Hi, again Brazil workmates! Let me start by asking you some very important questions. What exactly do you know about Services and Inventory Items?  Do you even know what an inventory Item is? If you are a company with subsidiaries in Brazil and you’re still dealing with the many tax and legal requirements you probably don’t have the right solutions and you may not be asking the right question. 

Stop struggling with operations that increase your workload, it’s not necessary to face them directly. The LatamReady SuiteApp is the solution within NetSuite for all of the problems that you may face so you can have the best tax compliance.

A simple way to understand the core of Services and Inventory Items 

Let’s begin by talking about what an inventory item is. An inventory item is a separate product that can be specified in stock. If your company sells stock items, you need to have a specific inventory and also know the specific taxation for the product.

Brazil’s items are divided into three types of articles and each article is subject to different types of taxes that depend not only on the type of product but also on which state you are doing business within Brazil. 

The first one is ‘Services’. A service is a type of transaction in which there are not necessarily physical goods being exchanged between the seller and the buyer. They can be different types of jobs or implementations. These services have different types of taxes that depend on the type of service offered.


The second one is ‘Inventorable Items’. These are products that purchased for resale and tracked in stock and on the balance sheet. Inventory items appear in the customer process such as sales quotes, sales orders or customer credit notes and in the supplier process like purchase orders, purchase invoices or supplier credit notes. In this case, taxation is applied by the way of the product. 

And last but not least there are ‘Non-inventory Items’. Unlike Inventorable Items, they don’t hold a cost value in the system and are not included in any manufacture or cost of goods calculations. Purchases of Non-inventory Items are logged like Material Expenses and are treated as a non-material expense and not included in your cost of goods sold calculations.
