2 Overview of SAP BusinessObjects Nota Fiscal Eletrnica

2.1 Introduction to SAP BusinessObjects Nota Fiscal Eletrnica


SAP BusinessObjects Nota Fiscal Eletrnica supports companies that have to comply with the requirements defined by the regional Brazilian authorities on electronic invoicing. The invoicing is based on the nota fiscal processes in a logistics system, for example SAP ERP. SAP BusinessObjects Nota Fiscal Eletrnica provides integration between a company and the government systems. The business processes are defined by the authorities including the following two communication processes: Outgoing Sending a Nota Fiscal Eletrnica (NF-e) or a Conhecimento de Transporte Eletrnico (CT-e) You can send NF-es/CT-es to the government system in accordance with the requirements regarding file size and format. Cancellation of NF-es/CT-es If a billing document in the logistics process needs to be canceled, this cancellation must be passed on to the authorities using a cancellation request. Skipping of NF-es/CT-es For rejected NF-es/CT-es, you must request the numeration skipping for the these invoices. Incoming You can use SAP BusinessObjects Nota Fiscal Eletrnica to electronically connect to your business partners for the NF-e/CT-e exchange in business-to-business (B2B) scenarios. With SAP BusinessObjects Nota Fiscal Eletrnica, it is possible to receive NF-es/CT-es from your business partner. It is also possible to automate the incoming process: from receipt of the electronic documents, signature validation and authorization check to the creation of the invoice in the SAP ERP back end system. This new function is provided through two new workplaces: Fiscal Workplace Logistics Workplace Note that the connected ERP system must be an SAP ERP system for you to use the function. Refer to SAP Note 1536142 for more information about SAP ERP prerequisites.
