The dragon has been tamed !

How can SAF-T be generated ?

  • Manually
         • regulations allow it, but it is difficult to generate
         • it will be cumbersome for companies with few registrations per month
         • and virtually impossible for anything larger than that
  • Export directly from ERP to SAF-T.XML
    possible, if the ERP platform provider has prepared the functionality (or if we have a mixed and capable IT team)
  • Export from ERP to Excel/ CSV and from there reprocessed and exported to SAF-T.XML
    This solution is usually proposed by tax consultants, including Big4)
  • With a dedicated, custom-made tool made by a B2B software company
  • With a dedicated integrated SAF-T tool

    Such solutions, usually using a Data Integration & Visual Analytics (Business Intelligence) platform, offer extensive facilities, an integrated, auditable, trackable, and fully automated workflow.
