Blog series on Run Compliance Reports: Introduction

Compliance reporting is all about submitting your compliance reports to the legal authorities in a timely and efficient manner but it is not as simple as it sounds as there are various activities and steps that are involved in the compliance reporting process.

If you are a global company, you have operations in different countries and therefore, are bound by each country’s legal laws. So how do you then track the statutory reporting tasks that has to be completed on time in the various countries? And, what if you must submit your reports physically or electronically? Maybe there are last minute changes in the generated report. How you do tackle such scenarios when compliance laws change rapidly and there is a stark rise in data consumption?

The answer is simple: SAP Document and Reporting Compliance – Statutory Reporting (DRC)

To simplify the end-to-end process of tracking, creating and submitting legal reports to authorities in the mode, format and frequency of their recommendation, DRC offers the Run Compliance Reports app (Run time). Business users like the Tax Accountants and G/L accountants can use the application for the following:

  • Get an optimized overview of your compliance reporting tasks and keep ahead of your submission deadlines

      Hi Paulo,


      Yes, SAP S/4 HANA for advanced compliance reporting has been merged with SAP Document Compliance and newly merged solution is called SAP Document and Reporting Compliance 🙂 And this is how it will be known henceforth. So now ACR is called Statutory Reporting and is a part of SAP Document and Reporting Compliance. Hope this answers your question?
