Applying Tax Engine Rigor to Procurement

Today's trends in best-of-breed procurement platforms for VAT professionals.

Video Overview:

In this World Finance video, Andrew Hallsworth, European manager of client solutions at Vertex, highlights the shift in procurement technology over recent years.

  • Up until recently, procurement was typically handled directly in a company’s ERP system, but with much difficulty.
  • Today, companies are using designated platforms like SAP Ariba and Coupa to handle procurement efficiently.
  • The tax content, power of automation, and consistency that businesses get when they integrate a tax engine to their platforms ensure they’re not only accepting correct invoices, revealing the true cost of VAT to their business.
  • VAT professionals can take control and benefit tremendously with this clearer way of handling the AR and AP side of their business.
