¿Quiere leer este post en español?

First of all, I hope you’re safe and healthy.

The unprecedented challenges of COVID-19 have caused legal changes for many regions, and Colombia has been also impacted with some changes.

To make sure all companies and natural persons are able to meet their legal obligations on time, the government of Colombia has extended the deadlines for submitting Magnetic Media reports to Dirección de Impuestos y Aduanas Nacionales (DIAN) in 2020.

The announcement was done in Resolution 000027 of March 25, which comprises the reporting of the 2019 fiscal period.

For everyone to see: The picture shows a screenshot of a Twitter post by @DIANColombia, which announces that there are “New deadlines for meeting tax obligations”.

For more details, stay tuned to DIAN channels:

SAP is aware of these deadline changes as well as of the impact they might have for you. Thinking of that, we have prepared a few tips to help you in some situations you may face when preparing Magnetic Media files:

1. This is the first time I’m reporting Magnetic Media with Advanced Compliance Reporting (ACR) and I have questions about the solution. Whenever we deal with a new solution that we’re not used to, it’s natural that some questions may come up. At these times, it’s always good to have a manual to help in the process. Do you know Magnetic Media reports documentation? You can find it in, under Financial Accounting > Advanced Compliance Reporting for Colombia.

Just as this blogpost that you’re reading, there are also others here in SAP Community about Magnetic Media specific topics. You can find them by checking the posts published under the Advanced Compliance Reporting tag.

2. I have questions about a certain system behavior. If you observe that your system is not behaving in the expected way, perhaps you may have adjustments to do in configuration settings or pending updates. We have an SAP Note with an extensive FAQ that might help you find the answer to your question. You can access it here: 2717885 – ACR – Magnetic Media: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and Recommendations.

This FAQ SAP Note also contains the list of latest SAP Notes released for Magnetic Media reports, so that you can maintain your system up to date.

3. I have an issue in my system that I’m not able to solve and I need support from SAP. To get support from SAP, you should report a case in SAP Support Portal, under the FI-LOC-FI-CO component – this is the specific component for financial reporting topics for Colombia.

SAP is ready to support you in the journey to stay compliant with Magnetic Media requirements in Colombia!
