SAP AMS Safe Harbor for Brazil/LATAM

The SAP AMS model that helps to reduce costs, mitigate risk, and anticipate the impact of legal and technological changes.

Latin America faces the challenge of having some of the most complex tax systems in the world. Companies are subject to numerous obligations on federal, state, and municipal levels.

The complex statutory and fiscal reporting environments require suppliers to abandon standardized approaches of “broad-based” support in favor of tailored support plans that leverage the region’s complex and dynamic characteristics.

As a solution to this challenge, Origen created the SAP AMS Safe Harbor for Brazil and LATAM, a unique service offering that changes the dynamic for how companies can maintain compliant with their Latin American operations while staying on the SAP roadmap. It enables companies to obtain better visibility and anticipate the impact of legal and technological changes allowing them to run their business more effectively in the region.

Origen Safe Harbor package is a tailor-made SAP AMS support package that is built to meet customer specific requirements related to localization compliance and support for Brazil and Latin American countries. This service provides companies the ability to better plan for compliance initiatives and identify cost reduction, risk mitigation, and time saving measures.
