GoBD: What does this mean for my company?

gobd_richtinien_720

Since 2015, there have been new regulations governing the use of IT for bookkeeping and other business records. After numerous drafts, which were in part heavily criticised by trade associations, the new GoBD (“Rules concerning the orderly management and storage of books, records and documents in electronic form and data access”) replace the previously applicable GoBS and GDPdU.

One new aspect is that, alongside pure financial bookkeeping, the pre-systems and supporting systems, as well as the materials handling, inventory management and time recording, are regulated digitally and are, therefore, fiscally relevant. In addition, strict deadlines apply to the logging of business transactions.

The, in part, clear tightenings may have far-reaching consequences for companies. What does this mean for your company? What effect will the new GoBD regulations have on your business processes, bookkeeping and archiving obligations? And how can you get your company up to speed so it complies with the new regulations?

We will be answering all of these questions during our first informative breakfast of 2015, to be held on 25th February, from 9 am to 12:30 pm in Mülheim an der Ruhr. Make the most of this opportunity to find out about the effects on the booking and archiving of fiscally relevant documents. Our expert speakers – namely finance expert Bernhard Lindgens from the Federal Central Tax Office in Bonn, and Dirk Hupperich, Head of Sales Service at EASY SOFTWARE AG – look forward to seeing you at the event.
