CbCR App is now available in the cloud

The Altova CbC Reporting App is now available as an SaaS solution in the Altova Cloud. The Altova Cloud portal makes it easy to create an account and instantly start a 30-day trial (no credit card required), add users, and eventually purchase a license via the Altova Online Shop. Because this is a true SaaS solution, there is nothing to download or install.

To accommodate legal differences concerning data privacy, data retention, GDPR, and so on, between the US and the EU, Altova utilizes two datacenters for accessing Altova apps in the cloud.

  • Switzerland: support for the requirements of the Swiss Tax Authorities (Eidgenössische Steuerverwaltung ESTV - Technische Wegleitung)
  • Belgium: support for the business rules of the Belgian Tax Authorities
  • United Kingdom: Support for the business rules of the United Kingdom Tax Authorities HMRC
  • Hong Kong: Support for the schema of the Hong Kong Tax Authorities
  • Singapore: Support for the supplementary instructions of the Singapore Tax Authorities IRAS
  • Isle of Man: Support for the business rules of the Isle of Man Tax Authorities “The Treasury”

Support for additional local rules will be added in the future – please reach out to our Support team if your country’s rules are not yet covered.

Ability to generate Correction Reports

The Altova CbC Reporting Solution makes it easy to generate a valid CbC XML filing report using a user-friendly web interface.

However, sometimes after a CbC report has been submitted to financial authorities, the submitting organization has a need to correct some information in or add some additional data to the report. When this is the case, a correction report must be created to update the filing.

Because a correction report must refer to internal IDs of the original report, it can be difficult to create manually.

Starting with Version 2.0, the Altova CbC Reporting solution makes it easy to generate a valid correction report automatically to update numbers or add new content.

In the correction report creation page, you'll find a list of existing reports. When you click the button to add new data or change/delete existing data, a new correction report is opened that contains all the necessary references to the original report.

Create CBC correction report in XML

Once you have made the necessary updates and saved the correction report, you'll find it listed with other existing reports. Simply click Create XML to generate the valid CbC correction report for submission.

Ability to import CbC Reports from other sources

If you receive a CbC report in XML from another source, you can now import it into the Altova CbC Reporting Solution. This makes it easy to view and understand the information contained in the report, as well as edit it if required.
