Webinar Details

Join our webinar hosted with the UK & Ireland SAP User Group on how a tax engine can help with real-time VAT validation in SAP Ariba to enhance your procure-to-pay process. Many businesses utilize SAP Ariba to process the procurement of materials and services simply and efficiently, particularly business overhead costs. However, there are various tax requirements and VAT rules and regulations that are constantly changing and need to be taken into consideration.

Additionally, the EU-wide trend towards the reporting of VAT to tax authorities in real-time is increasing the pressure for businesses to ensure that controls are put in place — ensuring invoices are processed and validated accurately. Learn how a tax engine enables real-time input tax validation for SAP Ariba.
