NetSuite Globalization and Localization

Grow your business globally with confidence

Given today’s global economy, many organizations from manufacturing to nonprofits are looking for growth in the international market. This growth is being achieved organically, such as setting up sales or full service offices and through acquisition, such as buying an international competitor.

Going global with NetSuite

In this guide, you'll find helpful considerations for your international NetSuite implementation.


Complexity of an international company

Operating an international business is complicated. Each country typically has its own currency, own set of regulations, statutory reporting requirements, tax structure and banking structure.  Further, when you start dealing with staff, each country has a different culture and local language that you must adapt. Growing regulatory challenges, compliance risk, financial penalties and more frequent system-based tax audits are leading to businesses being burdened with ever more complex tax compliance requirements.  

All of these issues require careful consideration when selecting, setting up and managing your systems and processes in order to be successful. 

The term most used in managing all these complexities is “localization”. This means adapting your processes, compliance and the other attributes listed above to the local country requirements.  Functionally, an ERP must have multicurrency capabilities. It must be adaptable for the local banking requirements and provide tools for compliance and reporting. The ERP must have robust consolidation and financial translation capabilities.
