If it depends on Brazilian Government, 2017 is going to be busy to IT professionals… among several changes coming to the next year, one that you must be aware is the NF-e 4th generation.

SEFAZ (Brazilian Governmental institution that rules among several other things, the Electronic Nota Fiscal changes) announced this week through the NT2016.002 the new layout to the NFe, 4.00.

You can find the new layout guide here:  http://www.nfe.fazenda.gov.br/portal/exibirArquivo.aspx?conteudo=c4S6yXTKpXY=

As usual, SAP plans to deliver the solution in advance, however, we know that from the date that the Guide is issued to the date when the new layout must be available in PRD, the government releases several changes to the layout, which makes even more challenge to deal with the new layout. Plan in ADVANCE, don’t underestimate this task.

Check here for SAP updates on when the solution is going to be released:
