The Challenge:

Brazil has one of the most complex tax systems in the world and companies are subject to numerous obligations on federal, state, and municipal levels. SAP provides a comprehensive enterprise solution localized for Brazil operations that helps companies simplify all aspects of managing the company value chain such as financials, procurement, logistics, customer engagement, commerce, human resources, and more.

 

While various transactions, documents, and postings created and stored within SAP form the basis for relevant reporting information, the specific way Brazilian authorities expect the data to be reported in conjunction with the electronic invoicing requirement for Brazil (NFe) and the abundance of complex regulations, differing formats, and protocols require additional oversight from a strategic partner that can help you navigate this complex landscape.

How does one anticipate the impacts of these legal and technological changes to your SAP system? How does one keep track of the updates SAP provides to maintain compliance options? And better yet, how do you determine which notes to apply and what will be their impact on your business and local IT teams?
