After you have entered information about the reporting entity, you can create a new report for that entity as follows:
1.In the second pane of the solution's main page (screenshot below), click Create New Report.
2.In the form that appears (screenshot below), select the year for which you want to create the report and the language you want to use in your report. The date to select here is the last day of a 12-month reporting period. If the period is not a 12-month period, enter the length of the period in the Warning field of the report's Message Information tab.
3.Click Create New Message. The report's main page appears (see description below). Note that, once a report has been created, neither its reporting period nor its language can be edited. To create a report for a another period, you must create a new report for it.
The report's main page (screenshot below) has two parts:
•CbC Report Message Details: A report is submitted as a message. This pane (the top pane) contains a summary of the message's meta information. It also contains buttons to (i) close the report page, (ii) verify the report's contents, and (ii) save the report to the solution's database and return to the solution's main page.
•A lower pane with four tabs. In each tab you can edit part of the report's message. The main financial data is in the tab named Report Data. Additional information that you might want to add about various constituent entities can be added in the Additional Information tab.
In the rest of this chapter, we describe the four tabs in detail.
To save a report, click Save & Close in the top pane (see screenshot above). The report will appear in the list of saved reports. To view or edit a saved report, click View Existing Reports on the app's main page.
