How VAT Compliance Drives the Need for eInvoicing and Supplier Portals

According to a Grant Thornton survey, 45% of CFOs say the #1 challenge to company growth is the increasing costs of compliance. This is becoming more and more exacerbated because governments are cracking down on tax evasion and mandating the real-time collection of invoice data. By requiring real-time reports with additional validation rules, governments are able to track invoices more closely and close the tax collection gap. Mexico and Brazil have collected billions of dollars by mandating eInvoicing and European countries are beginning to follow suit. Spain, Poland, and Hungary are the first of the European countries to adopt this style of VAT collection and the UK, Italy and Portugal are close. Now that governments are requiring traceable documents in real-time, the best solution for companies to limit audits, penalties and the cost of compliance is an automation eInvoicing solution.
