In Europe SAF-T is now in force in Austria, France, Lithuania, Luxembourg and Poland. Germany, UK, Ireland, Norway and the Czech Republic are most likely next to introduce SAF-T. Lithuania is expanding its SAF-T.
Starting October 1, 2016 all VAT-registered taxable persons, – including foreign companies registered for VAT – will be required to submit a SAF-T file in XML format to the LT Tax authorities on a monthly basis.
SAF-T SAP solution: fully integrated in SAP
We now offer a SAP add-on solution for SAF-T Poland (ABAP) at a fixed all inclusive fee. It is fully integrated in SAP without an external interface or use of external software. All inclusive means implementation, training and 1 year of free support and maintenance for bug-fixes & legal updates.
Our IT solution can be reused for other countries.
Besides the monthly SAF-T VAT file in Poland, companies have to be able to meet the SAF-T obligation ‘on request’ containing different legal requirements. This submission applies in case of a preliminary tax inquiry, a tax audit and tax proceedings where the SAF-T file should be provided to the PL tax authorities in a short timeframe. To avoid disputes and or penalties it is therefore important that a company is ready.
To establish synergies we have setup a joint venture initiative with a global development partner of SAP and leading software company in the area of e-invoice, e-bookkeeping, e-archive, e-ticket and such SAP add-ons in Poland. This company provides SAP certified add-ons for legal compliance to a large number of global well-known companies.
