Drawing from its extensive online library of EU VAT regulations, Avalara VAT Expert gives companies the ability to identify the correct VAT treatment for a broad range of transactions. And because VAT Expert is a cloud-based solution that requires no integration with in-house systems, it’s fast and easy to use.
Who it can help
Users both in practice and in industry can use it to quickly assist internal and external business customers to determine the right VAT treatment. VAT Expert can be used for both complex input and output VAT flows, and to help set up and validate the logic in internal ERP systems.
By using the system directly, finance teams can avoid having to pay for external VAT advice, ensure customers are billed properly, and send compliant invoices to their customers. VAT Expert can also be used to help you assist your trading partners in understanding their VAT implications, including providing guidance on how to report transactions on each party’s VAT return.
Users in smaller accounting firms can use the system to advise their customers on complex VAT flows.
