Anuncia SAT extensión de plazo para nuevo esquema de cancelación de CFDI

El Servicio de Administración Tributaria (SAT) ha informado a través de comunicaciones directas con sus funcionarios, que el inicio del nuevo esquema de cancelación de comprobantes fiscales digitales por Internet (CFDI) se prorroga del 1 de septiembre al 1 de noviembre de 2018.

Con esta facilidad los contribuyentes y desarrolladores de sistemas cuentan con dos meses más para concluir las adecuaciones a sus sistemas de cómputo administrativos de forma que esta tarea pueda automatizarse, y se busque disminuir en la medida de lo posible la carga administrativa que este nuevo esquema implica.

Como se ha indicado en publicaciones anteriores de Fiscalia, el nuevo esquema de cancelación consiste en solicitar al receptor del documento su autorización para que éste sea cancelado. De esta manera el receptor tiene un mayor control sobre los documentos que recibe y evita cancelaciones improcedentes que le afecten en la determinación de sus impuestos.

Es importante recordar que no todos los documentos entran en el esquema de cancelación, los siguientes documentos pueden ser cancelados sin necesidad de pedir autorización al receptor:

  • Los que amparen ingresos por un monto de hasta $5,000
  • Por concepto de nómina
  • Por concepto de egresos
  • Por concepto de traslado
  • Por concepto de ingresos expedidos a contribuyentes del RIF
  • Emitidos a través de la herramienta electrónica de ‘Mis cuentas’ en el aplicativo ‘Factura fácil’
  • Que amparen retenciones e información de pagos
  • Expedidos en operaciones realizadas con el público en general de conformidad con la regla 2.7.1.24. (XAXX-010101-000)
  • Emitidos a residentes en el extranjero para efectos fiscales conforme a la regla 2.7.1.26. (XEXX-010101-000)
  • Cuando la cancelación se realice dentro de los 3 días inmediatos siguientes a su expedición.

Esta prórroga se hará oficial durante el día de hoy por los canales que el SAT considera oficiales. En su caso, Fiscalia lo informará de manera puntual.

SAP anuncia cambio en la forma de dar autorizaciones a los S-User ID´s en todos los sistemas SAP

Este cambio implica actividad en cada cliente para asegurar una transición efectiva.

S-User Authorizations for SAP Support Applications: Goodbye Clusters, Welcome Authorization Packages

Clusters, which allowed large companies’ super-administrators to group customer numbers and installation numbers and then assign S-users authorizations on this level, are being phased out. All customers are encouraged to use the new Authorization Packages feature instead, which is more powerful and benefits companies of all sizes. To avoid data inconsistencies, S-users who in the past got authorizations assigned on cluster level should get these permissions amended.
Over the past few years, since its general availability in February 2016, the SAP ONE Support Launchpad and its applications have replaced traditional SAP support tools with modern alternatives. Right from the start, the focus of the launchpad development was not on copying existing functionality, but on questioning technical processes and adapting them wherever it makes sense.
Now, SAP Support is about to retire one of the few remaining legacy applications on the service.sap.com (SAP Service Marketplace) infrastructure, Cluster Maintenance. The feature replacing it, Authorization Packages, has been developed in close collaboration with our customers. It enables you to accomplish user management-related tasks with increased ease and efficiency.
However, the underlying concept is different from clusters, hence some groundwork needs to be completed.

What is a cluster?

Authorization management for your company’s S-user IDs deals with permissions (“authorization objects”) that are required to fulfill certain support-related tasks, for instance report incidents.
Most authorizations can be limited to selected installations, customer numbers or other so-called “authorization levels” at which the user can exercise this right.
Example: A user may be allowed to report incidents for one particular SAP product that your company has licensed (represented by an installation), but not for others.
The Cluster Maintenance feature allows you to group certain customer numbers, installation numbers, CCoE numbers and/or individual user IDs: you define “clusters”, your very own authorization levels. Subsequently, authorizations (like Report an Incident) can be granted to users on these clusters. The feature is mainly intended for customers with many installations and customer numbers.

And authorization packages?

Well, clusters are neither fish nor fowl: They only cover one aspect of granting authorizations, the level, but completely ignore permissions for the task. Authorization packages eliminate this functional shortcoming: User administrators can define a very specific authorization profile and reuse this “branding iron” over and over again. For instance, you can bundle some incident management-related authorizations like Report an Incident and Close Incidents for one of your subsidiaries – that’s a customer number – in a package Demo Company Argentina Helpdesk. If a new colleague joins the Argentinian IT team, simply apply this package to his user ID, thus adjusting his profile with one click.

Transition from clusters to authorization packages

By now you will have a better understanding of the two similar, but still different concepts. Unfortunately, there is no way to migrate clusters to authorization packages. Therefore, some manual work is required.
Step 1: Draft a blueprint for your S-user authorizations.
Are there colleagues in your company that share a huge part of their authorization profiles? If yes, using authorization packages will simplify user administration. You should then proceed to …
Step 2: Define authorization packages and apply them to these users.
Step 3: Identify users with permissions on cluster level and correct their profile
You know these colleagues? Great, then please go ahead and delete all authorizations that had been granted on cluster level. If not, SAP Support is able to assist and share a list of these user IDs with you. Even better: If you give your approval, SAP will remove all authorizations that were granted on cluster level from the authorization profiles of all your users. See below for further details.
A word of caution: You might be tempted to skip this clean-up step. But once the Cluster Maintenance application gets retired, these users will have “zombie” authorizations on some bizarre bundles of installation and customer numbers – you wouldn’t even know which ones! – that cannot be maintained anymore.
Almost inevitably, data inconsistencies will be the result.
Eventually, towards the end of this year, support applications will ignore authorizations on cluster levels. Which means that, unless you have corrected their profiles, many of your colleagues would lose their ability to complete important support tasks.
Step 4 (optional): Delete obsolete clusters.
Once a cluster is not assigned to any user, super-administrators can delete it using the Cluster Maintenance legacy application: From the list of all clusters, select the one you want to get rid of, enter the Edit mode, and click the Delete button.

So, what’s next?

With our Wave 4/2018 release for support applications on May 26th, creating new clusters and changing existing ones has been disabled.
Though you can still grant users authorizations on existing clusters, it goes without saying that you should stop using clusters straightaway; the new authorization packages feature is powerful and mature enough to replace clusters. Every new cluster assignment will cause unnecessary work.
Starting with the next release, Wave 5/2018 on July 5th, it will no longer be possible to assign authorizations on cluster levels. Furthermore, SAP will start alerting user administrators, and a launchpad-internal notification will be shown if authorization profiles of users in their company still have references to clusters.
Towards the end of 2018, the Cluster Maintenance application shall be retired.

How does SAP assist?

Most customers won’t require any help; in their company, the feature is hardly used, if at all.

However, if you have defined clusters and used them extensively to grant users authorizations, it can indeed become difficult to identify these colleagues, and tedious to clean up their profiles. We are here to help.

  1. SAP can share a list of all users that have got authorizations granted on cluster level with you. User administrators can simply report an incident under component XX-SER-SAPSMP-USR, subject “Users with authorizations on clusters”, and include the customer number of the users.
  2. Based on that list, SAP can remove all authorizations granted on cluster level from the affected user IDs. If you are interested in this service, report an incident under component XX-SER-SAPSMP-USR, subject “Remove all authorizations on cluster level from all user profiles”.Please note that it is not possible to exclude specific entries from the list. For all users, SAP will remove all authorizations that were granted on any cluster level. Regardless of the user, regardless of the cluster, regardless of the authorization object.
  3. Finally, if you’d like to use authorization packages to maintain your users’ profiles and want a particular package being applied to many users (let’s say more than one hundred), SAP can do this for you as well: First, create the authorization packages and a list of all user IDs they shall be applied to. Then, report an incident under component XX-SER-SAPSMP-USR, subject “Assign authorization packages to users”, and attach the list. It should be in XLS format and contain two columns, one for the name of the authorization package, the second one for all user IDs the package shall be assigned to.

Piloting Program SAP ONE Support Launchpad

We invite interested customers and partners to a special piloting program for the SAP ONE Support Launchpad. In this program, we offer roll-out and feedback sessions. We present new functionality that has become available since the previous release; give an outlook and insight on what we are currently working on; and collect and discuss feedback and ideas with participants. Sessions are held every 6-8 weeks. All interested parties can participate without obligations. The only prerequisite is a valid Feedback Agreement with SAP.

In case you would like to be involved and invited to future sessions, simply send an e-mail to my colleague Arno Helmling containing your name, S-user ID, e-mail address, and the name of your company.

SAP Adds Advanced Data Protection and Privacy Features to the SAP® SuccessFactors® HCM Suite

SAP SE announced new and updated features to the SAP® SuccessFactors® HCM Suite that will make it easier for HR leaders worldwide to comply with data protection and privacy laws. The announcement was made at the 2018 UNLEASH Conference & Expo, taking place March 20 and 21 at the ExCel London.
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will apply as of May 25, and with advanced data protection and privacy capabilities within the SAP SuccessFactors solutions, customers can adopt better personal data* management and governance.
“We’re committed to helping customers adhere to data protection and privacy regulations, and protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of their data in our highly regulated world,” SAP SuccessFactors President Greg Tomb said. “We’ve addressed previous regulations by standing up data center operations in countries like Russia and Brazil. With GDPR now on the horizon, we’re supporting customers in their compliance journey by providing tools that not only help them comply with these laws, and thereby avoid losses and exposure to fines, but also improve governance. Most important, we are helping organizations create value by earning and sustaining trust with employees and candidates.”
By enhancing existing product features and adding new capabilities, SAP SuccessFactors solutions support customers in properly handling and protecting sensitive employee, candidate and customer data. Updates include a variety of features designed to protect personal data, whether or not the person concerned remains with the organization:
Consent management — Certain data privacy laws, including the GDPR, require companies to obtain explicit consent from individuals to store or process personal data. This feature can be used throughout the consent process to configure and manage consent statements and acceptance. For example, recruiters can define consent statements in all languages in which a company operates and require candidates to accept the consent statement prior to applying for a position.

• Data blocking — This feature can be used to restrict access to historical, personal data within the retention period, and allows one user role to retain access to the data, while blocking access for others. For example, an HR service center employee fielding questions from employees may only need to see employee data going back one year, whereas an HR system administrator may need to see all history on the employee.

• Data subject info reporting — Companies store all kinds of personal data on their employees as well as external candidates, from information such as name and address to health data and the results of performance reviews. This feature enables customers to generate a report containing all of an individual’s personal data available across SAP SuccessFactors solutions. It supports individuals’ right to information, allowing them to know what personal information is being stored at any time.

• Data purge — The amount of personal data stored and processed by an organization is significant. Keeping this data longer than needed for business purposes increases a company’s risk of noncompliance and data breaches. Purging (permanently deleting) data once there is no longer a legal reason for keeping it is a requirement of some data protection and privacy laws, including the GDPR. To better comply with specific countries’ and industries’ data retention rules, this feature allows customers to define location-specific data retention regulations and to permanently delete data thereafter.

Globalization and digital disruption are pressuring businesses of all sizes to rely on their people to drive organizational agility and thrive in times of change. Over 6,400 customers in 193 countries rely on industry-leading SAP SuccessFactors solutions to support their efforts in complying with global and local data protection and privacy requirements, such as the General Data Protection Regulation, and to help attract, develop and retain the best people — tapping into their full potential and meaningfully connecting them to the company’s purpose and mission. Because purpose drives people, and people drive performance.

*Personal data is defined here as data that can be used to identify a natural person – this could be an employee, a candidate, an external learner, or a customer, for example.

Los Clientes hablan y SAP los escucha

Customer feedback and ideas are at the heart of SAP. One of the main feedback channels is through SAP Listens – SAP’s annual global relationship survey program. In 2017, SAP asked 22,200 customers around the world for their perception of and experiences with SAP – all with the aim to continuously improve customer experience and to accelerate innovations to the market.

SAP Increases Commitment to Powering Innovation in France

WALLDORF SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) CEO Bill McDermott today announced a series of planned investments for SAP’s operations in France over the next five years to accelerate the company’s digital strategy and support France’s growing position as a hub of innovation.

___________________________________
• Plans to incubate more than 50 startups
• Will invest €150 million per year in R&D over next five years
• Acquires Recast.AI, Paris startup focused on conversational user experience
________________________________________
The move includes:
• Opening the second SAP.iO Foundry location in Europe to provide more than 50 startups with mentorship, technology and access to the vibrant SAP ecosystem
• Investment by SAP.iO Fund in French startups in the seed or Series A round
• Spend by SAP of €150 million in research and development annually over the next five years
• Acquisition of Recast.AI to accelerate development of SAP Leonardo Machine Learning capabilities

Signaling its continued support for France, SAP estimates a more than €2 billion spend over five years, intended to accelerate the company’s fast growth in the cloud and advance a technology community focused on machine learning (ML), blockchain, the Internet of Things (IoT) and software as a service (SaaS). The step reflects SAP’s global strategy – fueled by the SAP Leonardo digital innovation system – to help every organization become an intelligent enterprise. SAP will focus on startups that build solutions complementary to the SAP Leonardo system to foster fast collaboration and global scale.

“There is a real sense of economic momentum in France,” Bill McDermott, CEO, SAP, said after a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron. “President Macron’s bold embrace of the digital world will help France rise to an enviable position as a global innovation leader. We see immense potential in the entrepreneurial spirit of France to disrupt business models, create modern jobs and unleash exciting new opportunities that help the world run better.”

For the first time, the incubation and innovation activities SAP undertakes in France include investment in startups with special focus on global impact, such as sustainability and climate change, where France is taking a leadership role. This new focus on social impact will complement the SAP.iO program’s strategic investments, which align with core businesses and technologies of SAP. The startups, led by dynamic entrepreneurs, play a critical role in extending SAP’s footprint and creating high-value use cases for customers.

Recast.AI Acquisition to Accelerate Natural Language Processing Capabilities

Recast.AI provides a development environment – software, technology and applications – that uses natural language, for example, chatbots. Recast.AI’s technology matches the requirements of conversational chatbots and allows high-performance natural language processing that supports more than 20 languages.

The acquisition will help SAP enhance the natural language processing capabilities in SAP solutions to help customers enjoy an improved user experience. SAP aims to simplify complex business interactions and processes by employing conversational user experience technology. The intention is to have applications speak to SAP software users in natural language. SAP created the SAP CoPilot digital assistant, a Web application, and an in-house platform to build conversational applications. SAP intends to use this platform across a wide breadth of its portfolio.

Recast.AI was founded in 2015, emerging from French coding school “42,” and is currently located at the incubator “Station F.” The company has grown quickly and today serves international customers in France, including large banks and insurance and tech companies. Recast.AI provides a modern ML-based technical architecture and owns proprietary algorithms that understand natural language. Its team of highly talented data scientists and engineers will strengthen ML development at SAP.

SAP is acquiring Recast.AI through its direct French subsidiary SAP France Holding, a limited liability company. Both companies agreed not to disclose details of the transaction.

SAP France celebrated its 30-year anniversary in 2017. Thousands of organizations in France – public and private – rely on SAP solutions and services to help them run at their best. In addition to hosting two of the 19 SAP Labs of SAP Labs Network, the company opened a flagship SAP Leonardo Center location in Paris last year. The location harnesses technologies such as AI and ML to deliver greater value to customers across the region. Innovation is core to operations in France. It includes plans to develop the France Innovation hub with the opening of Sports Center, an SAP Future Cities initiative and the extension of the SAP Leonardo Center location, which has already hosted more than 30,000 visitors since its opening.
