End the global VAT headache: live calc, tax law citations and compliant invoices from VAT Advisor

VAT Advisor ends the pain for complex cross-border transactions

If you are selling cross-border goods or services – traditional or digital – you’ve got international VAT / GST questions:

  • Who should pay how much tax, and in which country?
  • What tax laws, EU VAT Directive or other global rules should you check?
  • What if you’re doing something tricky like: simplified triangulation; partial exemptions; fixed establishment; customs procedures and warehousing; ‘may provisions’; or more?
  • Do you have an unusual business model, or have some tax office settlement that needs incorporating into the calculation?
  • What should you include on the invoice? Should you make legal references? And now QR Codes and e-invoices to worry about!
  • Do you need to show in clear and defensible way to your customers, suppliers or inquisitive tax authorities what the right tax treatment is?
  • In which VAT returns and boxes should you declare the tax?

Low-cost, live VAT / GST calculations, legal back-up and compliant invoices

Our VAT Advisor has all the answers. A simple online tool that takes you dynamically through a few details of any complex transaction, and instantly returns:

  • VAT calculations using correct rates for the supply
  • who has to collect and declare the VAT,  and in which country
  • tax law  citations. This includes correct invoice mentioning.
  • PDF compliant invoice to share within the application with customers, suppliers or the tax office to confirm the right tax treatment. And, QR Code stamp added so you are compliant in countries like Portugal, Greece, India and then many more as governments upgrade to e-invoicing.
