Overview of all reporting data
After the successful import of all relevant data, SARA provides an overview of the postings. Document items are summarized per G/L account and tax code. In addition to the direct link to the posted documents in the ERP, SARA provides comparative values of the reported data from the previous month and year-to-date. A first plausibility check is carried out on this aggregate level and the detailed review can start.
Declaration form per tax group and company code
Immediately after the import, an overview of the declaration form is available per tax group or individual company code. The origin of each reporting indicator can be traced down to the line-item level.
Upload of reporting data from other systems
Whether SAP, DATEV or by hardcopy from a third party tax consultant - not all companies are always managed on one SAP system. With SARA, data can be imported from other ERP systems on single document level or aggregated for each declaration. The data of an organization is thus consolidated in one system and can be administrated easily.
The tax department can add manual adjustments or enhancements regardless of the posting basis in SAP. This ensures that the amounts declared are always correct from the perspective of the tax department.
Transmission of the declaration with one click in SAP
After the report has been released, the data can be transmitted to the tax authorities. There are several options for this interface. The SARA interface transfers the declaration directly from within the SAP system - via ERiC interface. Alternatively, an already existing interface in SAP or a third-party tools can be used.
Post declaration postings
If the adjustments in the declaration process have an influence on the tax payable accounts of the different company codes, SARA automatically clears the amounts after the report. The corresponding FI postings are performed immediately via direct input.
