SAP Document Compliance

The best-suited solution for the electronic documents from SAP ERP

Manage transactional and analytical tax requirements with compliance documentation, calculation, and validation.

  • Does your company have presence in several countries?
  • Are you ready to comply with the fiscal requirements of each country?
  • Did you know that SAP has the tools to support your company with these processes?
It is a legal requirement in many countries that companies must issue business documents electronically to business partners and/or legal authorities such as Delivery Notes, Invoices, Credit Memo, Debit Memo, Tax Certificates etc. In addition, some countries require companies to send data of their VAT (Value Added Tax) register books to Tax Authorities.
To meet above mentioned legal compliance requirements in countries where companies are obliged to generate documents electronically, SAP offers eDocument solution.
SAP eDocument solution is used to create eDocuments, that is, to transform transactional data created in SAP ECC or S/4HANA system into predefined exchange formats and transfer it electronically to external systems such as to the systems of legal or Tax Authorities.

 

Solution Overview

Solution Landscape – Document Compliance Scenarios

SAP Cloud Platform Integration (CPI) is used as a communication platform to establish communication with external systems (e.g. legal tax authorities systems) by using web services to send data from SAP ECC or S/4HANA and to receive data from external systems. Depending on the country and scenario, SAP Cloud Platform Integration also formats the data to comply with the Web service parameters, signs the document digitally, and establishes a secure connection using SSL. Other key features of CPI are as below

  • Synchronous and asynchronous message exchanges
  • Support for multiple endpoints (service URLs) on the same integration flow
  • Support for several digital signature formats
