SAF-T is a standard format for exchanging accounting data developed by the OECD. The standard format specifies the accounting data to be exchanged and the structure of the data. We have a solid background from the implementation of +40 SAF-T projects for Microsoft Dynamics 365 & Dynamics AX.
Axdata offers you the full SAF-T package which now consists of 5 different modules, read more about these solutions on this page.
Microsoft supports SAF-T in Dynamics 365 Finance and in Dynamics AX2012R3
Axdata implements both Microsoft & Axdata’s SAF-T solutions
For companies with accounting obligations that implement Axdata SAF-T integration to their ERP system will quickly be able to experience several benefits, including:
- It will be easier to submit financial statements to public authorities
- It will be easier to perform internal audits in companies, analyze data in specialized systems and share data with others
- It will be easy to change accounting system and integrate different systems.
For the Norwegian tax administration, the new way of collecting accounting data means more efficient audits and shorter case processing times due to automation and fewer manual processes.
Below are the formats on which our individual SAF-T solutions are based. Note our Basic module forms the basis for all our SAF-T solutions.

It is worth noting the following:
- Microsoft supports SAF-T in Dynamics 365 Finance and in AX2012R3.
- Older ERP versions are not supported by Microsoft.
Microsoft has launched the SAF-T functionality for Dynamics 365 Finance. It is included in the 10.0.8 version, while hotfixes for the earlier versions must be installed before installation via electronic reporting. You can read more about this on this page at Microsoft.
Here you can also read about Microsoft’s support for SAF-T for Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3. If you want help with this, please contact us and we will tell you how we can help you.
If you have a Dynamics AX2012R3 or Dynamics 365 Finance, you can choose between Microsoft or Axdata’s solutions.
The difference between Microsoft and Axdata SAF-T solutions is illustrated in the overview below.
We have gathered 20 of the most used questions and answers about SAF-T in the document below.
For example, you can find answers to the following questions:
- What data must be reported in SAF-T?
- How should the SAF-T file be delivered in a practical way?
- What does it mean that company data must be “mapped” to the SAF-T format?
If you still have questions about SAF-T that are not answered in the attached material, you are of course very welcome to contact our SAF-T team.
The introduction of the format will make it easier to analyze data, send accounting material to public authorities. The standard format will also make it easier to perform internal controls at the company and share data with others, as well as make it easier to store accounting information.
All the countries that have chosen to introduce SAF-T do so in different phases / tempi. In Norway, for example, it has been chosen that in the first phase the content of the file will be required to be account specification (general ledger), customer and supplier specifications (residual account), VAT codes and necessary fixed data. The requirements for the content of an SAF-T XML file can be found on the Norwegian tax authority’s website under General documentation for implementing SAF-T and technical description.
Future versions, which are likely to be split into second and third phases, are likely to include requirements for more comprehensive accounting data, such as detailed invoice information, inventory, fixed assets and special taxes. It will probably also be mandatory to submit the data file in the long term together with the VAT return.
Contact Axdata if you want to know more about how a given country has chosen to approach SAF-T.
If you implement Axdata SAF-T solution, the company will be able to deliver according to the requirements of SAF-T reporting. With the SAF-T standard, each country’s tax authority is able to carry out more frequent checks and process cases faster than before. It is therefore important that the company has updated systems before the authorities implement their controls so that it is possible to retrieve accounting data in SAF-T format. In other words, it is a great advantage that you and your company are well prepared and have a proven system as soon as possible.
Digital submissions and analyzes of data have now become the new everyday life for most Norwegian companies
Businesses need complex IT systems for their business processes, but that does not necessarily mean that the system needs to be complicated. Axdata SAF-T integration with Microsoft Dynamics is a simple, efficient, and easy-to-use solution that helps businesses meet tax reporting requirements.
