Creation and Sending of Electronic Customer Tax Invoices in XML Format

With this feature, you can create and send electronic customer tax invoices in XML format to an integrated external system, such as another system of your company or a third-party application service provider. Then you use this external system to forward tax invoice XML files to the National Tax Service (NTS) of South Korea.

Effects on Existing Data

When a tax invoice has been validated by the NTS successfully, the system fills the following South Korea-specific fields of the corresponding accounting document in the Manage Journal Entries app, on the Header tab:
  • Approval Number: Indicates the electronic tax invoice ID, which is approved by the NTS.
  • Transfer Date: Indicates the date on which an electronic tax invoice is transferred to and validated by the NTS.

You can use this data in advanced compliance reporting for South Korea.

Effects on Data Transfer

You need an external forwarding system to act as a bridge between SAP S/4HANA and the NTS. This external system should be able to communicate with both SAP S/4HANA and the NTS. SAP S/4HANA sends tax invoice XML files to the external system. Then the external system forwards the XML files to the NTS for validation and forwards validation statuses back to SAP S/4HANA. You can integrate SAP S/4HANA and your forwarding system using SOA Manager.

Effects on System Administration

The following authorization objects are required to perform actions on eDocuments:
  • EDO_BUK (eDocument: Authorization for Company Code)
  • EDO_PROC (eDocument: Authorization for Process & Process Step)
