German Localization

The German localization extends the functionality of the Financials Accounting Area thanks to the availability of the specific ZM Declaration for the German market.

Edited by Marketing Department

As part of the continuous expansion and diversification of the international functionalities of the Mago4 ERP, one of the current focal points for the EU area is the management of tax returns in Germany.

For this reason, the Financial Accounting Area of Mago4 is further enriched, immediately after the publication of the VAT Settlement Model in release 2.4.4: with the 2.4.5 release, it will also be available the ZM Declaration (Zusammenfassende Meldung Form, or Form for the Summary Declaration) concerning intra-Community sales.

Through a batch procedure, called ZM Declaration, it will be possible to process the declaration itself, to be sent to the Tax authorities, on a file in CSV format; the folder where the file is exported can be indicated in the Accounting Parameters, Declarations tab.

It is important to note that the ZM Declaration can have a monthly (by default), quarterly or annual periodicity.

In the ZM Declaration, Customer VAT number and type of transactions groups intra-Community sales: normal (sales of goods), services and triangulations, where triangulations are sales of goods involving three distinct subjects: seller, promoter and recipient. In the latter case, therefore, the goods travel from the seller to the recipient but the promoter (who generally processes such goods) is the one who invoices the sale to the recipient.

Data generate directly from the sales documents, where the amounts are distinguished between goods and services according to the line type, and a specific option identifies the documents relating to the triangulations.

The procedure also allows a paper print with the cover page and two reports, one to list sales of goods and triangulations to EU customers, the other to list sales of services to EU customers. In each of the two reports, you can check the individual documents that have merged into the Declaration by simply clicking on the amounts.

This further step forward in German localization is part of the Service Pack 5 of Mago4 2.4, the continuously updated Zucchetti ERP, which is natively oriented to the global market.

Please refer to the release notes to learn more and be always updated on this and other product features.




EBanking Germany

Edited by Marketing Department

Bank reconciliation is about verifying that the accounting records correspond to the data on the bank statement; in practice, this means verifying the correspondence between the balance of the general ledger account (with all movements of the bank statement) and the statement of the same account issued by the bank. In Mago4 this function is performed by the Financials module, and is now available for Germany localization.

The improvement dedicated to Electronic Banking Germany includes a feature that allows you to import bank statement files in xml format, according to the Camt52 and Camt53 paths, reconcile bank statements with accounting records and maintain bank statements; the relative control reports are also available.

The reconciliation procedure allows both to generate the journal entries starting from the bank movements communicated by the bank, and to combine them with already entered accounting records. Checklists are also available to verify the actual reconciliation between the bank movements of account statements and the transactions posted in the accounts.

This improvement extends the international reach of the ERP Mago4, the "by vocation" international ERP chosen in over 30 countries around the world. Find out more about the improvement by consulting the release note.




New release Mago4

The latest news of the 2.2 and 2.3 releases concern many countries natively localized by Mago4 ERP.

Edited by Marketing Department

Mago4 is increasingly addressing the international scene. The commitment to meet the specific requirements of many different countries is seamless, then we'll now see the main news introduced by release 2.2 and 2.3 of Mago4.

One of the flagships of the Mago4 ERP is the Brazil localization. With Mago4 2.3 the Electronic Nota Fiscal 4.0 is ready! It will replace the currently used 3.1 model, whose validity will expire on 2 July 2018. The goal of NF-e 4.0 is to simplify the use of electronic invoices for those who need to send these documents. All the new mandatory fields have been included and the calculation of the taxes has been improved and of course, also the security of the service. The most important changes concern existing fields, but there are also new ones, for example, information on the calculation of the tax percentage collected by the Brazilian government in order to provide better life conditions to disadvantaged people (Fundo de Combate à Pobreza- FCP) whose obligation has also been extended to operations within the same state and not only to the interstate ones. On the other hand, new validations concern the traceability of the product and the payment information. Also, the Types of Payment and the respective Transcodings have been added in order to associate the types of payment of Mago with the codes envisaged in the Fiscal Note. Hence, the user can specify the form of payment, such as "cash", "check" or "credit card". In Financial area, Boletos can now be managed also for DAYCOVAL Bank, according to technical specifications.

A strength of Mago4 on the old continent is the latest German localization, to the progress of which the new releases greatly contribute. In addition to improvements in the Finanacials area - providing in Mago4 2.2 an improvement of Product Lines management and a new function to specify taxable and tax amounts in the Tax Summary - a particular news specific to financial transactions is very interesting: the DATEV Connector. In Germany, as well as in other countries, the export of data for all financial transactions relating to a fiscal year and their communication to the consultant within a reasonable time is required. The data must be collected in an electronically readable format, so that they can be imported into a special environment for their review. The requested data usually includes information on the accounts, the transactions of ledger, the VAT codes, the customer, the supplier and the items. In Germany, this data exchange is managed by DATEV which allows to deal with all this information in a rigorous and confidential manner. In order to meet all these requirements and be able to interface with DATEV, Mago4 2.3 has implemented a new module, DATEV Connector, which allows you to export from Mago the information related to the tax documents posted in the purchase and sales modules and import them into DATEV using a .csv file. This file contains all the main information requested by DATEV and supports the requirements regarding the format for exporting and importing data into DATEV.

As for other major countries, the latest Mago4 releases refine the location of Spain, allowing to enter into Customers and Suppliers masters, the Document Type and Number to be used in Tax declarations and in SII - the new model for the electronic management of VAT registers. Moreover, default data include reclassification schemas to print balance sheets with normal or abbreviated format; bills of cash order type can be printed on file according to the proper record layout and Payees module is available for the Withholding Tax management.

Other improvements concern Swiss localization, where the bills management is now available to present, collect and post outstandings of receivables of SEPA SDD Core and SEPA SDD B2B payment type. Such bills will be printed on XML file.

News also for Poland, Romania e Bulgaria: the check report Customers/Suppliers Balancing between Ledger Balances and Payment Schedule Report has been localized in order to detail the accounting balance of each customer/supplier; this allows to detail the accounting balance by accounts of customer/supplier type used in accounting entries and that generated the customer/supplier accounting balance.

Also for Italy there are incisive updates: in the Logistics area of Mago4 2.3, for example, the Packing Producers Declarations Report has been improved in order to make more complete the information concerning the CONAI. A column that shows the percentage of exemption has been added next to the value in tons relative to the quantity field already present in Mago4. The latest realease of Mago4 provides also the review of the printed text in Privacy Statement Letters, in accordance with the GDPR European Law and the update of Tax Settlement Sending procedure in accordance with specifications valid since the first quarter 2018.

Mago4 always more user-friendly! To make it easier for the user to find out what he wants to do in Mago, some menu items have been reviewed. The names of similar procedures have been aligned using the same terminology and the names for the homonymous procedures have been changed so that they can be more easily recognized during the search.

These are just some of the news presented by the last two releases of the Mago4 ERP: as you know, the constant update is one of Mago's main features and you can simply refer to the release notes in the Private Area; to find out everything that is reserved to you. As always, you can download the updates for free if you have maintained the MLU service.

New release 2.1 and SP1

A long post that is just a taste of the main product news.

Edited by Marketing Department

The 2.1 release and its Service Pack reserve many new features in all functional areas. Let's see the main ones.

In the Financials Accounting Area , Mago4 2.1 improves data management with the tabular management of data relating to Municipalities, Provinces and Regions, which allows all master data to select these specifics consistently to the ISO code indicated in the registry itself. The new tabular data are updated automatically during the database refresh from the Console, and include any new data and the updating of existing ones. The contents of the new tables comply with the activation country. Furthermore, the list of Italian municipalities has been updated, in compliance with the amendments in force since 1/2/2017.

Another new feature is the Mago4's Connector to Maestro software which, as you may recall, replaces the Bilancio & Oltre software. The Connector between Mago4 and Maestro makes it possible to export balances through an excel file to be imported into Maestro; the file is generated by a procedure based on a dedicated reclassification scheme that maps Maestro's entries with Mago4's accounts.

In the Logistics Area, the latest Mago4 release gives a new twist to the German localization , thanks to new and important projects implemented to meet local needs. Of particular importance is the introduction of the proposition of the counterpart and of the VAT code in the documents according to the local accounting rules. In Germany, accounting movements must be recorded in the accounts on the basis of specific tax rules; Mago4 2.1 implements the Accounting Rules , which allow you to have always the right proposition of the VAT code and of the counterpart in the purchase and sale documents. This ensures maximum flexibility, starting with the various master data in which the user can recall the Accounting Rule. Another project of the new release concerns a particular management valid in Germany: the discount for prepayment. In Germany in fact there is the concept of "Skonto", according to which a customer can get a discount by paying before the agreed date. In Mago4 2.1 it is possible to define and calculate this discount, to correctly manage its validity and accounting registration and to manage it with reference to the Account, as well as to take it into account in the Payment Conditions, in the Purchase and Sale documents and in the Matches.

Other specific needs faced in the commercial and logistics area are those for Poland localization. In particular, Mago4 2.1 takes over the Polish need to correct an invoice for a fiscal year different from that in which the correction invoice is generated, and in which an account that is no longer transferable is used, from which 2 sub-accounts have been created. In Mago4 2.1 the counterpart field is made editable on the correction invoice, in the event that the counterpart can not be post. In fact, the Polish regulations establish that an account with secondary accounts can not be posted.

Mago4 2.1 also enriches the Brazilian localization, in particular with the procedure Manifestação do Destinatário (Recipient Manifestation) in the Procedures section of the Fiscal Notes: a series of events that allow the recipient of the electronic invoice to manifest himself, confirming the information provided by the issuer of the fiscal document. The goal is to provide greater security in corporate tax transactions (for example, an invoice for which confirmation is issued can no longer be canceled by the issuer). From the 2.1 release, Mago4 is able to send and receive verifiable communications in absolute safety, thanks to a specific Monitor.

In confirmation of the increasing completeness and relevance of your ERP at international level, Mago4 2.1 presents the introduction in the Inventory area of ​​the Weighted Average of the Period, a valuation criterion widely used in international markets. Therefore, this model can now be applied for evaluating the final inventories; according to it, the outputs are valued at the average cost of the items received in the warehouse during the same period.

There is much more: for example, the Migration of Item Balances in the warehouse, that is further improved to meet the most varied needs, the ability to enter the counterparts in the customers and suppliers offers, the reorganization of the Summary and Deadlines Data in sales/purchase documents, or the increasing usability of the WMS thanks to the saving and restitution of some settings within the Stock Transfer procedure, not to mention the integration between Mago4 and the Zucchetti Saleforce Mobile app.

Last but certainly not least, the SP1 of Mago4 2.1 addresses and simplifies the theme of electronic invoicing: for those using the Zucchetti Digital Hub online service to send electronic documents, the Assosoftware format is now available on Mago4. This standard, which respects the whole ministerial format and the controls provided by the Interchange System, allows to generate complete, detailed and easier electronic documents thanks to a several additional codings shared among all the Software Houses adhering to this standard.
