Submitting Advance Tax Returns (UstVA, Umsatzsteuervoranmeldung) with ELSTER® Portal in the Oracle ERP Cloud
Why do you need "ELSTER"? (ELektronische STeuer ERkläung, which is a German acronym for the electronic tax return)
As of January 1, 2013, advance tax returns can only be filed online using the so-called ELSTER® interface of the German Federal Finance Administration.
To that end, you must first register at the ElsterOnline website. An electronic certificate is created during registration, which can be used for electronically issuing the VAT return (and additional ELSTER® applications).
To fully automate transfer of the VAT return data, your financial accounting system also requires the implementation of the corresponding ELSTER® interface. This is the only way to ensure an integrated and error free transmission.
