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.
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
MLog-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.
