Reporting VAT in Mexico with ACR: Understanding the Configurations and Output of the VAT Declaration Report

The VAT Declaration (MX_VAT_REP) report is one of the legal requirements that companies are asked to submit to SAT (legal authority) in Mexico.

To run this report with Advanced Compliance Reporting (ACR), you need to go through some configuration settings that are specific to the report. In this blogpost, you’ll learn what are the configuration settings required for the VAT Declaration report as well as what is the logical structure of the output file of the report.

Configuration:

Let’s start with the configurations you’ll need to go through to run the report in SAP S/4HANA:

You’ll find a comprehensive list of the configuration setting of the report here, including the configuration of VAT target tax codes into tax boxes with examples.

Once you’re done with the configurations, you’ll be ready to run the report and generate the ALV output.

ALV Output:

The ALV output of the report is structured according to the Determinación del Impuesto al Valor Agregado (page 4-6) section that is contained in the Declaración Provisional o Definitiva de Impuestos Federales SAT form.

Below we bring you an overview of the output ALV so that you can understand how each one of the fields is calculated. You can use this table as a reference whenever you’re in doubt about where the values contained in your ALV output come from.

Hints:

  1. The SAT form still has fields related to 11% VAT, which are no longer required to be reported, so these are not present in the ACR report.
  2. The SAT form field ‘IVA Retenido al Contribuyente’ (VAT withheld from the taxpayer) is not present in the report because this information is provided by others reports that are specific for withholding tax.
  3. If you are logged in Spanish, you’ll see that the ACR field descriptions are very similar to the SAT form. So, we recommend that you use this language to validate and print the report’s results.
