This blog post describes how to create a new withholding tax report on the SAP S/4HANA Cloud using Advanced Compliance Reporting.
For example, you wish to create a withholding tax (WHT) report for a country, for which it is not available as a part of the standard delivery.
- The new report definition must use existing data sources such as BRF+ functions, data base tables and CDS views.
- Schema can be created using the XSD files provided by the authorities, a CDS view or a custom business object which meets the requirement. However, you can only use the fields available in the data source (point 1) for mapping.
You have administrative access to SAP S/4HANA Cloud, and implementation experience on the system. You are also familiar with the implementation of Advanced Compliance Reporting on SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Implementation of the new report is across the following apps and configuration steps (SSCUI), and these are available on the SAP FIORI dashboard.
In the Define Compliance Reports app, parameters are added to the report definition. The report definition is then assigned to a reporting activity, which is in turn assigned to a report category. The parameters help the system identify the data for the output of a specific report. You enter the values of the parameters to enable the system to create a complete and correct output document.
