SAF-T from the Caseware Ukraine company

SAF-T (Standard Audit File Tax) is an electronic reporting standard in XML format for exchange of accounting data. From January 1, 2025, it is mandatory for large taxpayers to report standard tax audit files in electronic SAF-T format, and from January 1, 2027, it is mandatory to use SAF-T reporting for all VAT payers (Bill No. 6255 of November 2, 2021). Also, this bill defines penalties for failure to submit SAF-T UA: 100 minimum wages (UAH 650,000 as of 2022) – for large taxpayers.

Allows you to generate a SAF-T file in XML format that displays data in the correct schema, ensuring compliance with tax reporting requirements. Additionally, it is have built-in data validation module. Data validation is carried out not only at the final stage of XML file generation, but also at each of the intermediate stages of filling the SAF-T file. The module is available for integration with various accounting systems and databases.

In addition to generating the SAF-T file in XML format, it is important for companies to understand that the file is prepared correctly and is fully consistent with the financial statements. Therefore, companies can additionally use the SAF-T file analysis module to make sure that their financial statements are prepared and validate based on tests.
