Colombia is in Latin America and well known for many things

Why do we need Colombia Localisation?

  • LCO Colombia is a major country level localisation project done by Carlos Ruiz from Quality Systems & Solutions QSS Ltda. and completely submitted to Open Source.
  • It acts as a complete single basis of reference for other countries to follow.
  • It includes functionalities such as
    • Localised Chart of Accounts
    • Localised Language of Translation
    • Localised Taxation
    • Localised City and Region Location Table
  • Its deployment has easily maintainable and well supported techniques such as:
    • Using ModelValidator, customization.jar and patches.jar framework to protect core codebase
    • Using 2Pack to install LCO_Colombia as highly portable packages
    • Codebase is backward compatible to stable release 3.4.2 onwards
    • The Withholding Tax is quite tested and adopted by a good spread of countries around the world
    • Has a working Demo site that implemented in full
    • Has good forum discussions around it [1],[2],[3]

How to Install? (Steps in Brief)

  • With your ADempiere all setup you can now add this localisation
  • We then install the LCO Language Pack (you may use your own instead later)
  • Then we apply the 2Pack packages for localised behaviour (integration to core)
  • Applying GardenWorld client as sample model and data
  • Applying to target Clients the desired model
  • Setting up City & Region Locales
  • Creating a new company
  • Applying local calendar with holidays

Withholding Tax

  • The importance of this is that it is a common requirement of many countries around the world. However there is a lack of docmentation as to how LCO Colombia's WH Tax is made of.

  • Since then, I have migrated this to the iDempiere's OSGi framework, and its creator, User:CarlosRuiz has also done the same. I advice you to follow the Samurai (Carlos Ruiz :)). I am just the Ninja. :) - Redhuan D. Oon 02:57, 29 November 2013 (UTC)
