Estonian Package Excise - User Guide

This extension adds Estonian localization for package excise functionality in Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Once a quarter, entrepreneurs must submit a packaging excise duty declaration. The present functionality of the Estonian localization makes it possible to assemble a dataset necessary for the submission of the excise duty declaration in Business Central. The functionality does not include a printout of the excise duty declaration report.
