Run SAP Business ByDesign In The Country You Operate
It is a fact! SAP Business ByDesign is a global solution that is being used in over 140 countries around the world which provides the agility to adapt to tax requirements, languages and currencies for quick entry to new markets. Let's review and define each level of localization.
SAP Delivered Countries: these are countries where SAP provides a country version according to the international standards and local requirements. SAP has a list of countries that are localized and fully maintained for SAP Business ByDesign, for instance: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Japan, Mexico, France, Germany, Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, UK, US, Denmark, Switzerland, Italy, India, Spain and Israel.
Pre-localized country/region offers partial localization features and enables you to use SAP Business ByDesign in a consistent and integrated way to manage your business. The pre-localized countries/regions can be scoped in the business configuration, these countries/regions are labelled as Pre-Localized Country Version. It is an enhancement of the Tax Basic country version. The content delivered differs for each country/region, but it is mainly in taxes, customer facing forms (not in local language) and sometimes country/region specifics. Among these pre-localized countries are: Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Kuwait, Romania, Malaysia, South Korea*, Norway, Finland, Latvia, Greece, UAE, Singapore, Sweden, Lithuania, Estonia, Hong Kong, Thailand and Poland.
Finally, about 120 countries are located under SAP Light localized countries (TAX Basic) for which SAP provides basic tax calculations in Sales and Purchasing. On top of the SAP localizations for TAX Countries and for SAP Pre-Localized countries SAP expects that partners like SEIDOR develop and offer Partner Add-Ons to provide a full localized version.
We have already developed localizations for several countries based on TAX Basic and SAP Pre-Localized countries
Angola, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, Panama, Peru, Portugal, Trinidad & Tobago, and are working on a lot more.
