Correct invoicing for oil and gas companies using SAP


Building trust-based relationships through correct invoicing

The proper calculation of excise taxes in the oil and gas industry is a complex task. In each process, there are many different factors that influence the tax rates: Products and blends (including bio fuel blends). Origins and destinations. Effective dates and exemptions. Branded and unbranded products. Gross or net volumes.

In North America, the different tax rates are regulated by the Federal Government as well as State Governments and Local Governments. Independently of each other, the jurisdictions adjust the rates several times a year. This presents oil and gas companies with a major challenge: To keep an overview and stay up to date in this ever-changing environment, where every small inaccuracy or error can have big consequences.
