Simplify VAT Declaration Processes with SARA

The All-in-One Solution for SAP Systems Digitalization instead of manual processes

SARA is a tool that streamlines the process of creating, reviewing, approving, and submitting VAT declarations. It is an SAP add-on that integrates directly with your ERP system, whether it be SAP R/3 or SAP S/4 HANA. Using SARA can save you time and improves the accuracy of your VAT declarations.

The tool guides users through the creation of your VAT declarations:

  • monthly VAT returns
  • annual VAT returns
  • special advance payments/permanent time extensions
  • recapitulative statements
  • creation of declaration data for other EU countries.

It handles tasks such as importing and verifying data, making accounting adjustments and reporting the tax declaration to tax authorities. SARA also includes a qualified VAT ID check for your business partner. As part of the support and maintenance bundle, SARA is always compatible with the latest SAP version, as well as up-to-date regarding changes to the declaration forms.

Key Benefits

Standard software in practice

Automated data preparation

SARA significantly reduces the manual effort to cut down the preparation time of a VAT declaration. The automated process includes importing and organizing relevant data for declaration forms, conducting automatic plausibility checks and determining samples, and creating automatic correction postings. These steps ensure accurate and efficient VAT declarations.

Ensure Audit Proof Compliance with SARA

SARA helps you meet all compliance requirements and ensures that your VAT declarations are accurate and reliable. Audit proof documentation of corrections and integrated reporting facilitate the evaluation of adjustments at any time, and all declared amounts and postings remain traceable for years with SARA's comprehensive system.

Efficient Collaboration

SARA streamlines collaboration between tax and accounting by providing event-based email notifications and an audit trail of all process steps. This improves communication and efficiency, allowing teams to work more effectively together. Additionally, the platform simplifies the overall task management by facilitating task management and meeting deadlines.

Core Function

Automated Data Preparation

SARA automatically imports all relevant financial data from the company codes of the SAP system. Furthermore, the SAP add-on offers the possibility of manual or semi-automated uploads of relevant reporting data from companies in other ERP systems. System-based plausibility checks systematically examine the underlying data for potential errors in the posting.


In the worklist, all adjustments are documented on document item level. As part of the checking process, SARA records all necessary adjustments. Rule-based, postings with a deviating VAT declaration period can be reassigned automatically. The workflow then provides support for the subsequent work steps.

Correction Posting

If the adjustments in the worklist result in correction postings SARA can automatically post them. A workflow for reconciliation with the accounting department is available for this purpose. In addition, the clearing of the tax payable accounts can be automated via SARA once the declaration has been finalized.


After the document check has been completed, the determined VAT values can be transmitted to the tax authorities. To ensure optimal integration into the system landscape, several options are available for this process step: In addition to a dedicated SARA-ERiC interface, there is the option of using existing connections in SAP or also the XLS/CSV export for various third-party tools.

Flexible user / authorization concept

To make authorizations in the system as flexible as possible, SARA offers a concept of roles for the tax department, accounting, and revision. The four-eye principle guarantees process security. In addition, authorizations for company codes and reporting types can be individually customized.

VAT Compliance

Compliance requirements can be directly implemented in the declaration process in SARA. This includes the adherence to the 4-eye principle, the documentation of certain sample sizes, or the documentation for all adjustments of a declaration. The documentation of the scope of audits and compliance with guidelines thus takes place within the process of SARA while fulfilling the requirements of an existing Tax CMS.
