SAP Document Compliance

Digitalization of invoicing and tax reporting is a legal requirement that is being adopted by more countries every year. The main goal of this digitalization process is to prevent tax evasion, increase efficiency and digitalize the economy. Companies must comply with these new regulations in one of their key business processes of their daily operation or they are exposed to fines and penalties from the authorities.

1. SAP Standard

To help companies adopt this new paradigm, SAP created SAP Document and Reporting Compliance. With this tool SAP offers a common framework, known as eDocument Framework, that serves as a single access point for a better Customer experience. Besides, it allows the adoption of a country-specific solution just by applying OSS notes and basic customizing using AIF capabilities.

For communication with the different tax authorities the solution uses SAP Integration Suite – Cloud Integration. It provides rapid deployment packages that can be easily configured to connect with the specific Partner or Tax Authorities.

In the case of Peppol, SAP offers SAP Document and Reporting compliance as a SaaS solution. In this case, the approach on the SAP ECC or S/4 system is the same but the communication with the Peppol platform is done using the Peppol Exchange Service of SAP Document Compliance Cloud Edition.

The last addition to the solution is the SAP Document and Reporting Compliance Service (DRC Service). It consists of an SAP BTP based solution offering end-to-end reporting capabilities. Now it covers the main reports from several countries like MDT for VAT in UK or Payment Times Report in Australia.

Altogether, SAP Document and Reporting Compliance offers a standardized solution for many countries covering the end-to-end process and reducing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
