There’s a new version of the eSocial layout, version 2.3 (you can see it here), and we would like to comment on some of the changes and the impact for our solution.
You must have noticed that there is a new event (S-1295) in this layout version that isn’t detailed in eSocial documentation yet. The reason for this is that, although the Brazilian government has released eSocial layout 2.3, it hasn’t released a new Manual de Orientação do eSocial.
Therefore, even if eSocial layout 2.3 is the current official layout version, you should use eSocial layout 2.2.02 to perform the tests in eSocial restricted production environment. This recommendation was officially announced in eSocial website. Click here to learn more. There isn’t an agenda for layout 2.3 adjustments in eSocial restricted production environment, but we will let you know once the upgrade is available.
Having said that, you will have the adjustments for eSocial layout 2.3 in your system as soon as we have concrete results of the tests we are performing with the new layout version. While we work on that, our deliveries will be for eSocial layout 2.2.02.
Here is the agenda for our next delivery plans:
- Data extraction from events in scope and generation of XML files: S-2298, S-2300, S-2306
- Generation of XML files (events out of scope): S-2240
- Adjustments for layout version 2.3 (subject to change. This delivery plan will be confirmed once the legal authority publishes the timelines of the availability of test systems in version 2.3.)
- Non-periodic event: S-2230 will be delivered only for version 2.3.
We hope you enjoyed this post. Let us know what you think of eSocial layout version 2.3. Also, don’t forget to follow the tag HCM Payroll Brazil in SAP Community to stay tuned on eSocial latest news.
