We offer an SAP health check specifically on e-invoicing data requests such as Hungary, Italy and Spain and our method is based on the legal tax requirements defined in XML format and local VAT law.
Although we offer a fully SAP-integrated solution in SAP itself to submit required data in an automated way, it is essential to review whether the data in SAP itself is correct and complete and meets the tax requirements.
We deliver SAP health checks for its major clients, and the outcome was that quite some changes in SAP had to be made to avoid either future questions by the tax authorities or announcement of a tax audit when data is submitted. The method used applies to Hungary, Italy and Spain as well.
The tax authorities are aware that SAP setup itself is often not in order and that tools outside the ERP system are used to remediate and manipulate tax data outside of SAP with the purpose to improve tax reporting.
The full automated legal requirement is to force taxpayers to remediate the ERP VAT setup itself and realize that taxpayers do not use workarounds as Excel sheets or similar tools outside the ERP system as human intervention is not allowed. An incorrect SAP setup could result in inaccurate and incomplete data during submission.
Developing or purchasing a solution for automated submission of sales invoice data to the tax authorities does not solve a wrong SAP setup.
The 'garbage in' and 'garbage out' principle applies: 'the real problem is that tax data in standard SAP needs remediation as that tax data is not meeting the local legal invoice requirements itself.'
Our assessments have identified several critical gaps and also areas for improvement in the current billing process. Based on our earlier deliverables we have designed an efficient and effective assessment process that will include not only an overview of gaps but as well our view how to remediate these weaknesses in SAP itself.
