Successfully implemented SAP FICO module in the following countries:

Singapore China Japan

Malaysia Taiwan South Korea

Thailand Hong Kong Australia

Few Milestones:

Singapore- this is the organization’s first implementation in Asia Pacific region. FICO related master data (Chart of accounts, payment terms, etc.) were harmonized and business processes that will be applicable for Asia Pacific region were established and documented via flow chart, process narratives and user manuals.

Malaysia- Two company codes were implemented

Thailand- Implementation of localization package pertaining to Deferred Tax Reporting, VAT and Withholding Tax processes. Official receipts (before and after payment) printing were also implemented as part of country specific requirement.

China- Implementation of localization package which covers generating the journal vouchers and financial reports in legally prescribed format. Functional area and alternative chart of accounts were activated as well. We also utilized the SAP package to implement Golden Tax Interface (the process of submission of invoice transactions to China government’s tax system). My responsibility aside from configurations is to ensure that the information supplied and received between two systems are accurate, FICO impact- wise.

Prior to implementation of localization package, the SAP system was upgraded to EHP5. I made a thorough test of all FICO business processes to ensure that upgrade issues were detected and solved on time.

Taiwan- Government Unified Invoice (GUI) process was implemented. I made the configurations- from setting up of business place up to establishing the relationship between document types and the legal GUI numbering system so that each billing documents are generated with GUI number.

Hong Kong- no localization package implemented

Japan- Invoice summary is part of SAP localization package. I configured the system so that users can process and print this invoice summary (a form showing the list of invoices receivable from customers). Functional specification was prepared for my abaper to use as a basis to come up with the complex form. Official receipt as well as handling of Promissory Notes was also configured as part of business process unique only to Japan. With the assistance from external consultant, I implemented as well the fixed asset module, which makes use of double declining balance as the dominant depreciation method in Japan.

Korea- Setup of financial statement (in Korean language). Integration of SAP to Deutsche Bank, Korean Exchange Bank, Woori Bank and Shinhan Bank were implemented.

Australia- no localization package implemented

India- the most complex implementation to date. Currently doing configurations and unit testing of localizations implemented like Service tax process, withholding tax process, excise duty & CVD process for local purchases and importation, respectively.
