NetSuite OneWorld addresses the complex multi-national and multi-company needs of mid-market organizations. NetSuite OneWorld can readily enable businesses to adjust for currency, taxation and legal compliance differences at the local level, with regional and global business consolidation and roll-up.
It provides unprecedented global visibility of all aspects of your business worldwide in real time, ensuring consistent, compliant management across the organization, locally and globally.
Businesses running on NetSuite OneWorld can populate a single charts-of-accounts across subsidiaries, or use separate charts-of-accounts for each company with postings between subsidiaries such as expense allocation managed via inter-company journals.

Revenue recognition, local financial reporting and compliance are also built-in components of NetSuite OneWorld.
OneWorld even allows for global order management and sourcing with the ability to manage inventory and fulfillment across multiple locations with product items represented globally or on a per subsidiary basis.
