VAT Calculator – global tax engine ready out-of-the box

As tax authorities shift to live reporting, VAT & GST determination demands automation. Here’s how our VAT Calculator ends the pain and huge investment associated with a tax engine

If you are saying ‘Yes‘ to these questions, then we have some great news for you:

  • Concerned your EPR, AP/AR or invoicing systems are processing the wrong VAT?
  • Put off tax engines because of fear of lengthy and costly implementations, and stuck with hours of manual checks each month before invoicing and/or reporting?
  • Worried about months of creating manual use cases with customs rules that will need ERP team and outside consulting help for every more?
  • Not sure how your calculation will then be matched to VAT or GST return – how will you transfer and reconcile data?
  • Think you will have to purchase a separate VAT reporting application from a different speciality vendor, with another long implementation to support?
  • Given up, and just holding out for budget and resources with a major ERP upgrade?
  • Concerned about the new wave of e-invoicing requirements that will demand your VAT is right in real-tim?

Our VAT Calculator tax engine will put an end to these worries for three reasons:

  1. It’s built on tax law, not expensive to set-up and maintain custom codes to match your business;
  2. Our VATCalc in SAP Cockpit approach means no expensive implementation and ongoing support in SAP or other major ERPs
  3. AND it is on the same single platform as our returns product, VAT Filer.  That means just 1 simple integration to 1 end-point API.

In fact, a VAT Calc implementation is mostly just building to our API - days instead of months!
2. Using VAT Script, you take complete, real-time control of the rules Whilst our engine is built from the national tax laws up, you may have requirements that are nuanced to your business. No problem: with VAT Script, our proprietary tax programming interface, which you can be trained-up in minutes, allows you to adapt the assumptions to your business model or interpretation of tax rules. No need to call IT and ERP teams or pay for costly outside help for punishingly lengthy code change-cycles.
3. So good, we built two You may have already done the tax calculations on large batches of transactions, but you need it verified. Our VAT Auditor application will instantly verify the VAT / GST calculations of any size file, and return line-by-line errors and suggested changes. No complex or expensive integrations.
