FBT Support Services for ERP Software Integration (like SAP) (Posted On 13th December 2008).
Kaytek can help provide Support Services for Integration of ERP Software Packages (like SAP) with FBT Calculations.
Accounting Modules of some ERP software packages still do not support FBT calculation easily.
Many organizations have the FBT data being exported or dumped from the ERP software using Excel workbooks.
There are worksheets that have individual accounting transaction level details such as Accounting Code, Document Number, Document Date, Transaction Details, Document Reference, Profit Center, Cost Center, Posting Date, Posting Amount, Transaction Fringe Benefit Value & Calculated FBT.
These input worksheets contain the ERP (like SAP) generated accounting source data on which the FBT will have to be calculated based on the account codes and other additional information supplied by the organization as relevant.
They also have a summary worksheet in which the Calculated FBT Data Totals (Fringe Benefit Values & FBT Tax) are shown along each accounting code.
These Account Codes along with the Account Name & Description are displayed in a hierarchial fashion as per the organization's relevant Chart Of Expense Accounts.
This would be the Output based on the mapping of the Account Codes to the relevant Employee Related Expenses on which the FBT workings would be done.
The exact nature of the support services will depend on the ERP software package being used and the accounting practices and FBT related account codes that have been set up. To determine the scope of services and charges, some important queries are the following :
Average Number of Accounting Transactions per Period (Day / Week / Month / Quarter) on which FBT would be attracted.
Additional Organization Details like Profit center, Cost center that may be required for apportionment of FBT.
