SAF-T for Romania: All you need to know to get started with the solution available in SAP S/4HANA and SAP ERP


Hi there,

If your company do business in Romania, there are good news for you: the Standard Audit File – Taxation (or SAF-T) solution has been made available to enable you to report your business transactional data. 

With the Standard Audit File – Taxation (or SAF-T) report, you can generate reporting files with the information required by the National Agency for Fiscal Administration (ANAF) to fulfill the legal requirements for the D406 declaration. 

As the D406 declaration consists of four types of declaration, the solution delivery has been planned in phases: 

  • Phase 1: Monthly/Quarterly declaration for Romanian resident companies ​(L/T).
  • Phase 2Declaration for stocks ​(C) based on Tax authority request after first Monthly/Quarterly declaration. 
  • Phase 3: Annual Declaration for assets (A) based on financial annual reporting.
  • Phase 4: Monthly/Quarterly declaration for Romanian non-resident companies ​(NL/NT).


What’s available in the different releases and what is yet to come 

With the current solution released in April/May, 2022, you can already prepare monthly/quarterly declaration for Romanian resident companies. 

The SAF-T for Romania is available in SAP S/4HANA Cloud, SAP S/4HANA, and SAP ERP. 

For SAP S/4HANA and SAP ERP, you can implement the solution via SAP Notes. Here’s the central note you can go to find out more: SAP Note 3133675. 

You can check the following SAP Notes to help you implementing the solution: 

Here there are two getting started materials to help you in the implementation process: 

  • 3165525 – SAF-T (RO): Getting Started – SAP S/4HANA 
  • 3165284 – SAF-T (RO): Getting Started – SAP ERP 

Below you find more details about the solution available in SAP S/4HANA. 


Getting authorization and configuring the report in SAP S/4HANA 

These are the prerequisites to run the SAF-T  report: 

    • When maintaining the general ledger accounts, keep in mind that the parameter selection regarding the Main or Alternative G/L Account should match with the settings in the Classify G/L Account configuration activity.  
  • Business Partner Classification: This is a prerequisite when maintaining the master data for your business partners in the Maintain Business Partner app. 

For the BP Role Supplier (Fin. Accounting) and Company Code segments, select Vendor:Ctry-Spec. Enh. tab. For each business partner, proceed as follows: 

    • Enter a validity date. Example: 01.01.2022 – 30.04.2099.
    • Enter the VAT registration number according to the tax authority classification.
    • Enter tax type 6. 

For business partners that need to be excluded from the master file, enter tax type 7. 


When the master data of your customers and business partners comes from the item instead of being defined in the Maintain Business Partner app, the tax number is set to empty. 

Once you’re ready, you can run the  SAF-T  report.

      Hello Ailane,


      thank you for this helpful blog!

      Is there a possibility to do a mass update of the Business Partner Classification in SAP S4/HANA Cloud?


      In the Mass Maintenance - Business Partner app I did not find BP Type Assignment fields and it would be a high effort to update them manually.


      Thank you and BR

      Hi Mona,

      Thanks for the feedback and for the question!
      I'm afraid I'm not an expert on the Maintain Business Partner app, but it seems there's an option to use the central API for mass data processing. For more information about this app and related features, see Maintain Business Partner.

      Hope that helps.

      Best regards,

      Hi Davide,

      It depends on the SAP S/4HANA release you're working with. In the highest SAP S/4HANA releases, you can find it in Customizing for Cross-Application Components under General Application Functions > Document and Reporting Compliance > Country/Region-Specific Settings > Romania > Statutory Reporting > Standard Audit File - Taxation (SAF-T) > General Settings > Setting Up Your Statutory Reporting.

      Let us double check it internally too and update the documentation accordingly.

      Hope that helps.

      Dear Ailane,

      we planned to start with our Company Code for Austria in 2024. this company has a registration in Romania. Therefor we have the abroad functionality in place. So in Phase 4 we have to report SAF-T from 2025.

      I like to ask directly: Do you think we have to crate a separate company code for Romania (what we really don't like) or we can expect a solution from SAP inside the compliance reporting?

      thanks and best regards

      Hi Bernd,

      Apologies for the delay on getting back to you.

      This part of the solution is still in planning (Phase 4), but the plan includes a separate report within SAP Document and Reporting Compliance for non-resident companies ​(NL/NT) indeed.

      I hope that helps.

      Best regards,

      I am starting the customizing of SAFT Romania along with the SAP Guide. I would need some explanations on some fields, especially "Default zero quantity" in the customizing "Classify GL Accounts" t code /CEECV/RO_SAFT_ACCMA.

      I guess I will have other questions of this type. How can I find any answer on these specifities?


      Thanks and Regards,
