Retirement of Sage 300 Portal and Web Deployment
With the release of Sage 300 2019, Sage CRM integration now uses the Sage 300cloud web screens instead of Sage 300 Web Deployment. These Sage 300cloud web screens also deliver the ad hoc inquiry functionality previously provided by the old Sage 300 Portal. However, Sage will continue to support both of these older technologies until August 2019.

Reverse Charges - in Tax Services, you can set up reverse charges (also called customer accounting or self-assessed taxes) for purchases. A reverse charge is a tax amount owed on goods or services you purchase, which you must remit directly to the relevant tax authority, instead of paying it to the vendor.
Withholding Taxes - in Tax Services, you can set up withholding taxes for purchases. A withholding tax is applied when purchasing goods or services from a vendor, and allows you to withhold some or all of either the selling price or the tax amount for a transaction. You then remit the withheld amount to a tax authority on behalf of the vendor.
Other Improvements - several core system improvements have been made, including the Item Finder, AR and PJC modules, and Ops Inquiry.
