PROJECT SCOPE

Audit of customer's business processes

During the audit, LeverX consultants together with the customer determined which of the current business processes are relevant and which should be optimized or configured from scratch.

LeverX consultants also designed and offered solutions for accounting process transformation to move to IFRS and enhance sales, logistic, and controlling processes.

SAP Financial Accounting (FI)

Within the SAP FI module, experts made the following changes:

  • Provided for three registers for accounting: IRFS (main register), NAS (National Accounting Standard of the Republic of Uzbekistan), and tax register (income tax).
  • Configured a general ledger chart of accounts.
  • Implemented indirect tax accounting.
  • Implemented deferred expense accounting process.
  • Implemented automatic generation of bank payments.
  • Transformed cost accounting processes and processes of accounts receivable and accounts payable.
  • Activated the material register, which allows the most accurate calculation of material prices in two currencies.
  • Configured an instrument that allows you to fully automate the process of closing the period in accounting and management.

Among the integration tasks, the following were implemented:

  • Integration with a third-party system faktura.uz in terms of receiving/sending invoices and signing their EDS in the ERP system. The third-party system faktura.uz, in turn, is integrated with the tax inspection of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
  • Automatic updating of exchange rates in accordance with the National Bank of the Republic of Uzbekistan and price calculation under the current exchange rate.

SAP CO realized opportunities:

  • Transparent organizational structure based on cost center hierarchy and profit center.
  • Ratio analysis of administrative and production costs.
  • A detailed accounting of investment measures based on SAP CO investment orders.
  • Implementation of management reporting that simplifies the analysis of budget expenditures.

  • Audit and standardization of business processes.
  • Modification of sales pricing schemes for new business processes in terms of pricing management that allows increasing the competitiveness of the customer’s goods, as well as improving customer loyalty.
