Country Feature Description
W1 New field, Intrastat Partner Type, on customer and vendor cards The Intrastat Partner Type field has replaced the Parter Type field in Intrastat reporting. Partner Type is used in SEPA to define the SEPA Direct Debit Scheme (Core or B2B). Intrastat Partner Type is used for Intrastat reporting only. This way, users can specify different values for the two fields if they need to. More details about setup here.
W1 Improvement in creating Intrastat file for item with supplementary UOM and without weight When the line in Intrastat has supplementary unit of measure, weight for the item is not necessary. Now users can create the file even if they don't have weight for the item on Intrastat line if this item uses supplementary unit of measure.

Good to know

General availability of the Shopify Connector
Last October, we announced a new partnership with Shopify to help our customers create a better shopping experience. The partnership was designed to better connect the easy-to-use commerce and merchant experience of Shopify with the comprehensive business management capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. The Shopify connector is now available for the online version of Business Central at no extra cost. Existing customers that have been upgraded to 20.1 automatically get the Shopify extension installed. If they do not need the app, it can be uninstalled by following this guidance. Read the blog, the FAQ, watch the on-demand session, learn how to get started and view the listing on Shopify App Store.
