EDICOM SAFT-PT: Certified Solution
Audited and Certified by DGCI.
Ordinance no. 363/2010 and 340/2013.
The General Directorate of Taxation (DGCI) is responsible for regulating the electronic reporting of invoices, shipping documents and accounting records in an XML format called SAF-T.
Invoicing systems, shipping documents and electronic accounting records of Portuguese companies must be certified and audited by the DGCI.
There are three types of documents that companies must submit to the Portuguese tax authority electronically.
Accounting systems must record the information needed to generate the electronic accounting files in SAFT-PT format. Companies can file monthly or annually and the reports must include: itemized lists, customers and suppliers, VAT rules, accounting entries and charts of accounts.
Electronic VAT Reporting
Electronic VAT returns in SAFT-PT format must be filed before the 5th of each month. The authorities require that the files be generated sequentially. In addition, the files must be encrypted and include the electronic signature of the previous invoice as a control mechanism for the file creation process.
EDICOM's solution automates the sending of data in real time to the Portuguese Tax and Customs Authority. The solution receives the code and automatically integrates it into the shipping document.
This code is required for the movement of goods.
