SAP Tax Declaration Framework (TDF)

Ortho Clinical Diagnostics

The leading in vitro diagnostics company manages Brazil fiscal compliance by deploying SAP TDF for their Brazil operations


Functionality: SAP TDF Deployment with Origen HANA Certified Partner Solution


Ortho Clinical Diagnostics is an in vitro diagnostics company that makes diagnostic equipment for blood testing. In 2014, The Carlyle Group purchased the company from Johnson & Johnson.


Ortho Clinical was challenged with implementing a separate global SAP instance to operate as an independent company in a rapid fashion after the spinoff of Johnson & Johnson occurred. As part of the Brazil deployment for the Latin American Foundation Project, a decision was made by the CIO to implement the SAP Tax Declaration Framework for Brazil solution, SAP’s HANA-based tax management solution that helps Brazilian companies manage their fiscal reporting environments.


Origen was selected as a specialized systems integration partner to deploy SAP TDF because they were recognized as an SAP COIL (SAP Co-Innovation Labs partner with SAP Labs do Brasil) Partner and because of their Certification of their TDF Origen Tax Solution with SAP HANA. The solution that was deployed for Ortho Clinical Brazil enabled the following:

  • Federal Legal Reports: SPED ECF, PCO, ECD, and ECF
  • State Legal Reports: for Sao Paulo P: GIA, and GIA ST; for Santa Catarina: DIME
  • City Legal Reports: NTFS, and DMS
  • CIAP procedures

The Benefits:

Using a native SAP-based solution to manage the complex fiscal reporting environment for Brazil enabled the following:

  • Utilized SAP HANA in-memory database to consolidate fiscal data in real-time with complete governance and integration into their SAP ERP system
  • Allowed for predictive analysis and optimization of report submission for the tax environment at Ortho Brazil
  • Period closing times were greatly reduced
  • Greatly reduced the risk for non-compliance and created a sustainable reporting environment for Brazil
  • Greater accuracy on fiscal planning and tax payment procedures
  • Eliminated the need to integrate complex and proprietary 3rd party fiscal reporting solutions into SAP that over time would increase costs and management of multiple vendors
