I had received the same timline information a while back, but when I opened a case in March to check back on it, they provided the following information:
"SAP Concur takes very seriously the receipt digitalization regulations and local requirements requested by each market (for example, Spain).
Our first priority and current activity: build an architecture based on the most complex requirements to be able to support all markets’ needs; France and Spain compliance are roadmap candidates for the second half of 2018.
More detail regarding release timelines and countries will be available in the second quarter of 2018. However, I cannot confirm you any specific timeline or date at the moment."
Have you managed to implement the paperless solution for France?
I am in the process of starting the initiative but there are questions from our Tax team on handling of pdf invoices and storage of the digitized receipts - France legislation requires storage in France or a country with which France has a treaty...but our documents are stored in the US.
Thanks for any info you can share.
I believe concur has come up with a solution on receipt digitalization for France and Spain, You can reach out to them via a Support case and they will take you through the process.
Hope this helps:)
