Based on the 1629/2014. (XI. 6.) Government Regulation, an Electronic Road Transportation Control System (Elektronikus Közúti Áruforgalom Ellenőrző Rendszer, EKAER) was introduced in Hungary. The decree is in force as of January 1, 2015, with the first two month declared a leniency period; however, following 1st of March, severe punishments are to be expected. For further detail on the decision, see the INFORMATION menu point under https://www.ekaer.nav.gov.hu/ page.
HostLogic’s SAP-EKAER solution
HostLogic Ltd. does everything in its power to help its customers and companies using SAP systems conform to these legal conditions in time. To do this, we have performed the necessary SAP developments, using which it is possible to automatize the request of EKAER numbers both for sales and for import acquisition. This development assists in decreasing the administrative burden on customers, which has grown extremely due to the new regulation.
How does is work?
After the users inputted all the relevant data into the corresponding SAP tables about the transport the EKAER number request can be sent directly from the SAP-EKAER solution. The machine-to-machine connection thus eliminates the need of manually uploading XML files to the server of the National Tax and Customs Administration of Hungary (NAV).
