Migrating to SAP S/4HANA: Considerations for Your VAT Solution

Vertex Inc.


If you are implementing or migrating to SAP S/4HANA have you involved your tax department when it comes to VAT?

Migrating from an SAP ECC system (or even an earlier version of SAP) to SAP S/4HANA is a perfect opportunity to optimize your business processes by either using the latest functionality of S/4HANA or by eventually connecting additional platforms for specific processes (like purchasing, billing, etc.).

Did you know that if you keep all your processes in SAP and you have a bespoke VAT solution in your current SAP system, you will need to rebuild your solution when migrating to S/4HANA?

Moreover, if you are connecting designated platforms to S/4HANA for purchasing or sales processes or connecting e-commerce platforms, you will need to design a VAT solution for each application as the S/4HANA bespoke solution cannot automate VAT in these additional applications?
