According to the Legislative Decree no. 127/2015, art. 1 and Decree Law 78/2010, art. 21, the Periodic VAT payment Communication (COMUNICAZIONE IVA PERIODICA CON PROSPETTO DI LIQUIDAZIONE) information must be transmitted electronically in XML format (Quarterly VAT communication "Lipe").

Dynamics AX 2012 R3 supports of Quarterly VAT communication for Italy. To support the of Quarterly VAT communication on Dynamics AX 2012 R3 the hotfix was released: # 4020795.

On 21st of March 2018, Italian Inland Revenue published information that starting from the first quarter of 2018 the “Lipe” communication must be submitted and this format replaces the communication model of the quarterly VAT returns approved with the provision of March 27, 2017: KB #4245229.

This article describes changes in the Quarterly VAT communication “Lipe” on Dynamics AX 2012 R3 introduced for the purpose to accommodate changes in VAT management in case if a company applies VAT management and reporting by tax point date (“Date of VAT register”): KB #4511202.

For companies that do not apply  VAT management and reporting by tax point date (“Date of VAT register”) the Quarterly VAT communication “Lipe” report is not changed and data for the report will be collected by tax transactions posting date.


When a company decides to use “Date of VAT register” feature to enable VAT management by tax point date which differs from the date of transaction posting, this hotfix must be installed to uptake the change in VAT management in the Quarterly VAT communication “Lipe” report.

When “Date of VAT register” parameter in General ledger parameters form is marked, the system on “Quarterly VAT Communication” report generation will calculate amounts in the report by tax transactions basing on “Date of VAT register” field instead of the tax transactions posting date. It is supposed that Date of VAT register field is filled in for all the tax transactions in the related period. Check whether there are tax transactions with empty Date of VAT register using VAT register transactions periodic task (KB #4511202).
