Workshop – electronic submission of financial statements with SAP®

The German law introduced in 2008 to reduce the administrative burden of taxation mandates a procedure for submitting financial statements in digital form in place of paper-based documents.

Companies whose fiscal year commences after December 31, 2010 must submit balance sheets, profit and loss statements and where necessary, tax reconciliations electronically, using a standardized format.

iowell offers a workshop on the electronic submission of financial statements in accordance with this new legislation with SAP®. The workshop will address the following issues:

  • How is tax-related data best handled within an SAP® system?
  • How do balance sheets and statements have to be structured for electronic submission?
  • What tool is used to submit the statements?

VAT ID validation for SAP® systems

Management consultants iowell provide a routine for validating VAT ID numbers with SAP® systems.

The tool offers an integrated validation solution for master data and for document data relating to accounts payable and receivables.

Key features

  • Automatic and manual online validation of VAT ID numbers, along with the company name (including the legal form according to the commercial register), city, street and zip code
  • Verification by the Federal Central Tax Office (Bundeszentralamt für Steuern) in accordance with German VAT legislation
  • Integration of online validation as a background process during order processing and the creation of delivery notes and invoices
  • Recording of validation results in a dedicated audit log table in the SAP® system for audit purposes
  • Log-table monitor and functionality for analyzing and editing log entries. Where required, a log entry can be manually linked to a document (order, delivery note or invoice). The monitor enables users to correct master data and resubmit a query.
  • Option of selecting only those receivables for which there are active documents. This prevents the routine from checking all master data every time a validation is performed.
