Edited by Marketing Department

The Digital Hub is Zucchetti's proposal to issue and receive electronic invoices to the Public Administration (b2g) and to private individuals (b2b). As you know, in fact, the Italian Budget Law 2018 introduced the obligation of electronic invoicing also for individuals (we had already talked about it here ). Therefore, starting from 1 January 2019, only electronically issued invoices will be valid and sent via the Interchange System (Italian SDI). This deadline is brought forward to July 1, 2018 for operators in the fuel supply chain and subcontractors of the Public Administration.

To be sure of proceeding safely and efficiently, the right choice is to rely on the solutions offered by Zucchetti, accredited Conservator and Certification Authority at the Agency for Digital Italy, and that has long been working as a qualified intermediary at the Inland Revenue Agency with its own transmission channel, the Digital Hub.

The operation of the Zucchetti Digital Hub really simplifies your life, also because the ERP Mago4 has been set up since a long time to dialogue and interact with the Zucchetti service for electronic invoicing, making a complete and integrated system available. Thus, you can directly manage the electronic invoice generation process directly from the Mago4 ERP, delegating all the operations to Zucchetti, including replacement storage.

Digital Communication 2017

Mago4 release 1.4  incorporates new guidelines for VAT Analytical Communication and provides integration with Zucchetti's services to meet this obligation.

Edited by Marketing Department

The continuous expansion and evolution of the digital communication system creates the need for an application that can be updated in a timely and targeted manner. For companies it is important that rapid change in digital communication practices is followed by specific upgrades, which do not necessarily require upgrading of all management software, often accompanied by vertical applications and features that require much less frequent upgrades.

On Friday, May 5, 2017, Mago4 (and Mago.net) updates were released, which include the new VAT Communication guidelines, along with the integration of the services provided by Zucchetti to comply with legal requirements.

The "Digital Hub" sending services are activated at the same time as the corresponding services of the Tax Agency, from Thursday 11 May; the first postings to the Agency will be on Monday May 15, but you can still proceed installing the upgraded versions.

As you know, the first posting - scheduled for May 31 - only concerns some information (Periodic VAT Settlement Communication), while other more detailed streams expire on September 18th.

Everything suggests that in the future, the "Italian Digital Agenda" will progressively increase the number of this kind of communication: to allow more flexible management of updates, the new Mago release introduces an important innovation on a strictly technical level, that provides a standalone component dedicated to the issues related to VAT data Communication and Electronic Invoicing (ie the "Digital Communications") functionalities.

From the point of view of licensing, installation, and upgrade, nothing changes and the procedure remains totally transparent, offering you a great advantage: you can benefit from the release of any updates  for the "Digital Communications" purpose with no need to update the entire ERP and consequently align your customizations and verticals. That is not bad, isn't it?!

You will have more details on the subject by reading on this blog the in-depth, forthcoming publication, dedicated to the 1.4 release of Mago; in the meantime, we recommend that you contact your reference reseller for any information.
