Generate SAF-T output, ready for timely submission
The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) first introduced the Standard Audit File for Tax (SAF-T) in May 2005. Since then, a growing number of tax authorities have embraced it as a way to get a broad view of companies’ tax affairs. Many of the countries that have introduced SAF-T so far have also applied their own individual interpretation of the original, or subsequent 2010 version, of the SAF-T structure. However, the quantity of diverse data required by these unfamiliar, jurisdiction-specific SAF-T schemas makes it challenging for companies to meet their obligations. A tax authority’s request also leaves a relatively short window for companies to collate the data and present it in the prescribed format, especially if they need to do this across jurisdictions and in different formats.
