For the migration of a bookkeeping dossier into Exact Online, a customer asked TRI-S if data could be imported from a FAIA file. We developed an import routine and injected the data into Exact Online so that the customer could recuperate a lot of his historical data and could immediately continue to work in Exact Online.

FAIA is an implementation of the SAF-T standard in Luxembourg which is the OECD-recommended Standard Audit File for Tax (SAF-T). The SAF-T (also referred to as the Fichier Audit Informatisé AED or FAIA) is a standard file designed to export data from the taxpayers’ IT system upon request by the VAT authorities.
