The Challenge of Complex Regulations
The worldwide legal and fiscal requirements in the field of business-to-government (B2G) scenarios (for example, e-invoicing, e-governance, e-reporting, e-delivery, and e-tracking) are extremely rigorous, ranging from mandatory electronic invoicing (see SAP Nota Fiscal Eletrônica in Brazil), comprehensive and correct reporting of business transactions right through to processing and presentation of various special taxes.
The regulatory requirements are also subject to constant changes, sometimes involving significant adjustments to the system and process landscape. In 2020, Hungary, Turkey, and India are among those who will see changes of this kind. All of this makes implementing, using, and maintaining a global SAP solution a costly and complex challenge in these countries. Fortunately, companies looking to avoid the considerable technical and organizational effort involved can outsource the entire process of exchanging documents with the tax authorities.
