What is eCDF?

The platform for electronic gathering of financial data (eCDF) is a project of the « Centre des Technologies de l'Information de l'Etat » (CTIE). Its main purpose is to provide a central and neutral platform for the preparation, the validation and the electronic transmission via Internet of financial data that must be provided to the authorities (all types of periodic and annual declarations, annual accounts, chart of accounts,...).

Why using our eCDF package?

The electronic transfer of the companies' financial data to the CTIE, and hence to the authorities, is preferably done through the transmission of XML files directly generated via the accounting tools, according to an XML structure predefined by the CTIE.

The financial data to be submitted electronically consists in the following:

  • Balance sheet
  • Profit and loss statement
  • Chart of accounts

Since January 1st 2012, businesses with an annual turnover over EUR 100,000 must draw up their accounts in accordance with the Standard Chart of Accounts.

For these businesses, all accounts closed as of 31 December 2011 must be prepared and approved in electronic format on the 'platform for the electronic gathering of financial data' (Plateforme électronique de Collecte des Données Financières - eCDF)


A dedicated program enables the creation of the eCDF files based on your data in SAP. That file can then be directly uploaded in the eCDF platform.

Which benefit?

You save time by generating the file directly from your SAP data on the eCDF platform and hence avoiding to manually filling in a form.
