Sovos announces alliance with KPMG to help enterprises with VAT Compliance requirements
By Edlyn Cardoza
Global tax software provider Sovos recently announced its strategic alliance with audit, tax and advisory firm KPMG LLP to empower enterprises to meet evolving value-added tax (VAT) compliance obligations across multiple countries. With Sovos’ software and KPMG’s tax experience, organisations can simplify operations into a single platform, reduce the IT cost of compliance and decrease the risk of penalties associated with incorrect or delayed reporting.
VAT is a vital revenue resource for governments around the world. As a result, tax authorities are looking for new ways to ensure they are capturing anticipated revenue, including adopting new and more expansive real-time compliance requirements and introducing new data demands, processes, and needs.
“Managing VAT compliance amid rapid regulatory change is overwhelming for multinational organizations,” said Jonathan Eisner, chief channel officer and vice president of global alliances, Sovos. “Through this relationship, enterprises will have access to KPMG’s experienced tax professionals as well as Sovos’ scalable VAT service, which handles compliance obligations across 70 countries, including continuous transaction controls, post-audit e-invoicing and periodic reporting.”
With Sovos and KPMG, businesses can:
- Lower costs: Reduce IT costs associated with compliance
- Simplify operations: Deploy a single platform for managing accounts receivable, accounts payable, e-archiving and VAT compliance across the countries.
- Reduce negative impacts on cash flow: Ensure that tax credits are not delayed due to incorrect or delayed reporting.
- Decrease the risk of penalties: Automate processes and verifications for e-invoicing; link to all related documents – from purchase order to invoice to tax reporting.
“Increasingly, continuous transaction controls push businesses towards digital transformation,” said Niren Saldanha, partner, tax, KPMG. “Our team has extensive knowledge of implementing Sovos’ software within existing ERP and legacy systems. By setting up data reporting within the ERP system, we can help tax authorities receive the right information at the right time to keep our clients’ compliance efforts running smoothly. With Sovos, we’ll be able to help them stay ahead of tax compliance regulations today, and in the future.”
