Mago4 and all the teams wish you good summer holidays.

Edited by Marketing Department

Summer, time for well-deserved rest and vacations!

All teams of Microarea and Mago4 wish users and resellers a pleasant summer break.

As for us, the offices will remain regularly open throughout August to ensure continuity of development, assistance and support on all activities, ordinary and not.

In this way we intend to embrace a dimension more oriented to global business on the operational level, eliminating the " Italian " forced breaks characteristics of the summer season ... It is no coincidence that Mago4 is the ERP Zucchetti with the most marked international mentality!

We just want to wish everyone a happy summer break!

 




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.




Recargo Equivalencia

Another country-specific feature Spain further expands the international reach of your Mago4 ERP.

Edited by Marketing Department

The ability to develop solutions to better manage taxation and a complete and continuous assistance on the whole management product are just some of the many keys to success of Mago4 in Spain.

In Spain there is a system of taxation called 'Recargo de Equivalencia' (R.E.), which only concerns certain retail activities. This is a special scheme which is compulsory for resellers who do not process products at all, i.e. resellers to the final consumer. The Recargo de Equivalencia does not apply to industrial activities, services or wholesale trade.

However, there are exceptions within the retail sector where certain activities are not eligible for RE; these include jewellers, car dealers, boat and airplane sales, service stations and others. These categories are subject to a different regime, whereby the retailer has to pay, in addition to VAT, an additional amount (which is then the Recargo de Equivalencia); the payment is made directly to the supplier. This way, you are exempt from submitting the VAT payment itself. In practice, the supplier must include the RE on the invoice, differentiating it from the VAT, and consider both amounts as VAT charged in the relevant tax statement.

Thanks to its innate flexibility, Mago4 adapts to this typically Spanish system. Let's take the case of a customer covered by the special R.E. regime. With the Spanish location of the ERP Mago, in fact, in all sales documents starting from the Offers, in addition to the VAT in the detail line is calculated the Recargo of Equivalencia, and a rate for the R.E. is also indicated in the VAT code. The additional VAT, calculated by Mago4, is shown in the tax printouts of the VAT sales register and its summary by VAT code, general summary of VAT registers and VAT clearance.

Maximum adaptability to all situations, efficiency based on local peculiarities: this is how Mago4 is able to support any phase of business management, anywhere in the world. This is one of the reasons why Mago4 is the international ERP software by vocation, chosen in over 30 countries around the world and part of Zucchetti's international strategic offer.




6 month of Mago4's webinars

Between January and June 2019, the first cycle of webinars dedicated to the theme " Mago4 for digital companies" was held and aimed at users and partners. Here are the results of this very positive experience!

Edited by Marketing Department

In the first 6 months of the year, the appointment with Mago4 was "fixed": every two weeks, in fact, users, retailers and the Mago Business Assistant team met together in a virtual classroom to learn more about many useful and interesting topics.

The experience was a huge success, widely appreciated by the vast majority of participants. The numbers of these 10 meetings in fact speak for themselves: the total number of participants was 600, with a redemption of 73% with respect to registrations, variously distributed between retailers and end users of Mago4.

The most appreciated topics were those discussed in the sessions related to the advantages of I.Mago in the administrative area, held in January, with a +140% of attendance compared to the average, followed by the webinar dedicated to production optimization with the Manufacturing of Mago4, which was held at the end of May and recorded a +133% of attendance and, to close our "top 3", the meeting dedicated to the control and monitoring of business costs in mid-April, with a good +118%.

The results have been very positive not only with regard to the content phase, but also with regard to the performance supporting the online sessions; the best evaluations relate to the choice of content and the expertise of the speakers. The topics of the webinars were considered excellent by 78% of users and good by 20%, while 90% considered the speaker's speech to be excellent.

The interest of many participants in specific issues covered by online demos should be noted: many feedback of appreciation of this activity on specific topics has been provided.

If you have not been able to participate in any of the webinars, don't worry: every meeting has been recorded, so that you can always use the video by downloading it from the Private Area and from MyZucchetti portal.

Your opinion counts a lot and the continuous feedback, together with the dialogue between the Team, Resellers and Users pushes to do better and better. The collection of feedback data was in fact the tool that allowed to "sum up" and started a further planning: given the success of the first edition, the activity of periodic webinars will be proposed again for another six months, to deepen many other features of great interest to the ERP Mago4.

But there's a big news: by taking part in the online survey, you can choose which topics to deal with during the next appointments! Participating is really easy: vote on the topics you prefer by following this linkand expressing your preferences. Remember: you have 15 days from the publication date to vote!

As soon as we have collected the data, we will start the calendar of meetings and as always you will be reached by the invitation from Zucchetti, followed by instructions to participate in the webinars.

EBanking Germany

New features for the German localization of Mago4’s Financials module.

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.




Bills customization

Optimize your corporate image: the tools provided by the Mago4 development platform help you customize the reports.

Edited by Marketing Department

It often happens that even if you work very hard to add the details you want and pay attention to everything being correct in the invoice or a quote, looking at the final result, does the document look exactly like any invoice or offer from a competitor?

Have you ever considered the various opportunities that Mago4 offers to change the default template? Communicating the image of the company activity is important, so we have created a simple and intuitive tool to personalize documents so that they represent who you are as a company.

With Reporting Studio, the sophisticated customizing tool  of Mago4, you can reflect who you are in your invoices and offers to differentiate yourself from others. This is especially important if you want to highlight your brand. The way you present your invoices, in fact, represents you as a company. With Mago4 you can create your invoices even if you are not a graphic designer. You can take photos of your products or your office and add them to the document. In addition to adding images in the header, you can insert your logo to get more sophisticated graphics.

You can choose the colours you want by choosing the one that best suits your bill, or you can opt for a simple design with defined lines and an elegant character. You can create endless types of graphics to customize your invoice based on the period in which it will be sent (Christmas, Easter, etc.). Furthermore, if you print the invoice to envelope it, with Mago4 you can customize it so that the customer's address appears in the letter window and also allows printing or not of the header depending on whether or not you use letterhead.

In the next updates of Mago4 there will also be further news: it will be possible to report the code and the description of the Customer by Item in the sales printed documents, behind the setting of a specific parameter, and it will be possible to manage free notes to be printed if necessary. To know more about the functionalities, please get in touch with your reference reseller, or visit the Mago4 Help Center, where task guides are available.

Stay tuned!
