Hi there,

If your company do business in Romania, there are good news for you: the Standard Audit File – Taxation (or SAF-T) solution has been made available recently to enable you to report your business transactional data. 

With the Standard Audit File – Taxation (or SAF-T) report, you can generate reporting files with the information required by the National Agency for Fiscal Administration (ANAF) to fulfill the legal requirements for the D406 declaration. 

As the D406 declaration consists of four types of declaration, the solution delivery has been planned in phases: 

  • Phase 1: Monthly/Quarterly declaration for Romanian resident companies ​(L/T) – Deadline for large taxpayers is July 31, 2022. 
  • Phase 2Declaration for stocks ​(C) based on Tax authority request after first Monthly/Quarterly declaration. 
  • Phase 3: Annual Declaration for assets (A) based on financial annual reporting.
  • Phase 4: Monthly/Quarterly declaration for Romanian non-resident companies ​(NL/NT) – Deadline is January 1, 2025. 

 

What’s available in the different releases and what is yet to come 

With the current solution released in April/May, 2022, you can already prepare monthly/quarterly declaration for Romanian resident companies. 

The SAF-T for Romania is available in SAP S/4HANA Cloud, SAP S/4HANA, and SAP ERP.

Getting authorization and configuring the report in SAP S/4HANA 

These are the prerequisites to run the SAF-T  report: 

    • When maintaining the general ledger accounts, keep in mind that the parameter selection regarding the Main or Alternative G/L Account should match with the settings in the Classify G/L Account configuration activity.  
  • Business Partner Classification: This is a prerequisite when maintaining the master data for your business partners in the Maintain Business Partner app. 

For the BP Role Supplier (Fin. Accounting) and Company Code segments, select Vendor:Ctry-Spec. Enh. tab. For each business partner, proceed as follows: 

    • Enter a validity date. Example: 01.01.2022 – 30.04.2099.
    • Enter the VAT registration number according to the tax authority classification.
    • Enter tax type 6. 

For business partners that need to be excluded from the master file, enter tax type 7. 

Note 

When the master data of your customers and business partners comes from the item instead of being defined in the Maintain Business Partner app, the tax number is set to empty. 

Once you’re ready, you can run the  SAF-T  report.
