VAT Declaration Entirely Digitalized
Increased VAT-compliance throughout the entire declaration process
VAT declaration inside SAP
Digitizing the VAT return - as an end-to-end process: From data collection, individual invoice verification, adjustment bookings, and consolidation within the VAT group up to declaration to the tax authority. Our SARA software is the only SAP add-on that implements the complete VAT declaration process within your SAP system.
We developed workflows that accelerate data processing in order to support your tax experts with SARA. Whether at the VAT group or company code level, G/L account or cost type view or even down to explicit checks on document items: you audit and evaluate in the desired granularity, SARA structures, and documents all relevant information in one place. SARA simplifies the correction and reconciliation processes. You release the declaration and SARA transfers the data to the tax authorities via our ERiC interface. You concentrate on analysis and VAT assessment, SARA on the processes.
SARA prepares your data and makes it available to you in a structured manner for direct processing: consolidated per VAT group or specific company code and checked in advance for anomalies through automated plausibility checks.
Excellent VAT processing
With the worklist function, the clarification of issues worthy of examination is coordinated across departments, mapped transparently, and finally solved automatically. This enables you to initiate adjustment postings for amounts and tax codes, different period assignments, and all necessary reconciliations for documents with the Accounting department. Anomalies either lead to updated databases, which you receive again for review, or the integrated solving process results in automated correction postings. SARA also triggers the consolidated entries in the consolidation group and the posting of receivables/payables to the tax authorities. - The functional scope of SARA is nothing less than being a platform for all aspects of VAT processing.
The continuously digitized reporting process via SARA impresses in terms of audit security and compliance. All analysis results for each individual document and their adjustments are recorded by the system - transparent, comprehensible, and audit-proof. Approval procedures and authorization concepts are essential components of the configuration.
