  • Flexible Reporting Levels

    SAP S/4HANA for advanced compliance reporting allows you to submit tax reports at different reporting levels via the use of organizational units. The reporting levels currently supported in advanced compliance reporting, for both classic and enhanced modes, are - company code, business place, jurisdiction code, and section code. This feature allows you to use the Run Advanced Compliance Reports app to submit reports for countries that require reporting at these additional levels. For example, Canada tax authorities require tax reporting at company code and tax jurisdiction levels. You can set values for the reporting levels while configuring the reporting entity. The assigned values get defaulted when you run the reports. You can assign the organizational units to the report categories in the Define Advanced Compliance Reports app.
