A scalable SAP solution for countries implementing SAF-T

The SAP add-on is extendable to countries that uses the OECD framework as the basis for SAF-T reports. Note that countries might have their own specific local requirements but in case the basic required data are covered in the OECD framework it could be managed with country specific variants.

You can compare it with the EU VAT requirements: EU Directive as framework with some country specific rules based on the options in the EU Directive.

Our partner's core business is to develop SAP certified add-ons and many well-known multinationals companies have implemented it for the comparable submission of electronic data.

The SAF-T SAP add-on solution is now available for Poland, Lithuania and Norway. 

Our SAF-T solution is fully integrated in SAP without an external interface or use of external software and SAP release and upgrade independent. It is implemented without core modification and ABAP is the programming language. Installation done simply by external transport file. It contains user-friendly screens, own customized tables and own transaction codes and menus.

We provide 12 months of free maintenance service and yearly maintenance agreements (optional) for consecutive years. Maintenance services include version upgrades according to new regulations issued and bug-fixing:
  • Online Helpdesk
  • Dedicated Project Manager (SPOC -Single Point Of Contact)
  • 2 hours response time for first priority issues.
  • Mail tracking
  • Ticket Reporting

Scalable solution 

The solution is scalable.   The SAP add-on is extendable to countries that uses the OECD framework as the basis for SAF-T reports. Countries could be added quickly in an (cost) efficient and effective manner as the SAF-T add-on is designed in a way that it allows companies to extend SAF-T requirements for other countries:

Product consists of two main parts;
  1. Core Part : The data extraction and main functionalities.
  2. Localization part : Designed for further country adaptation requirements.

Country adaptations are as you can see quite straight forward after the core implementation.

Turn key solution

The solution is a turn key solution and that means:
  • Implementation (4-6 weeks)
  • Training
  • Support & Maintenance (one year free & yearly renewable)
More detail also including an overview of the requirements for Lithuania, Norway and Poland and the challenges companies need to overcome when SAP is run can be found in attached slide deck.
