VAT Business Intelligence solution (VBI)

This highly scalable solution allows Indirect tax compliance teams to automate the process of creating VAT, ECSL and Intrastat returns across multiple territories. It has been successfully used to reduce the manual effort normally associated with such compliance processes allowing streamlined teams to work effectively, preparing a large volume of returns utilising a relatively small headcount.

Indirect Tax Questionnare
