      It would be good to see a bit more detail here - for example highlighting countries where ecletronic submission is also supported (e.g Making Tax Digital in the UK for VAT) and what steps need to be taken to support this

      Thanks for the comment. We are in the process of building country wise documentation where we will discuss whether electronic submission is supported.

      If you looking for any country related support, you may please raise a query, we will try to revert back in priority.

      Hi Anoop,

      It looks awesome, Thanks.

      One of my client is planning to use this ACR process in India for S/4 HANA 1809 Version.

      Can you please suggest me, once we take this license from SAP, what are all the steps we need to follow for IN localization
