Vertex VAT Compliance

Streamline and automate VAT/GST filing reports and returns to improve compliance and audit performance.

Vertex Cloud VAT Compliance

Automate VAT reporting to increase efficiency and improve business agility.

Managing manual processes for global value-added tax (VAT) reporting is labor-intensive, error-prone, and costly. Keeping up with the latest requirements and meeting reporting timelines for each jurisdiction is challenging, and the effort required to support new business expansion can hinder a company’s agility to respond to market opportunity.

Vertex VAT Compliance enables multi-national corporations to support current operations and future business growth without additional VAT/GST process burden. Vertex offers a cloud-based, centralized multi-country VAT reporting solution with automation and built-in workflow tools to support periodic compliance reporting, returns generation and timely filing to the jurisdictions.

This application streamlines and automates multi-country VAT compliance to reduce risk, keep the business in line with the latest regulatory changes, improve process efficiency and data quality, and ensure timely submission to the jurisdictions. It also supports the growing digitization mandate around the world, including UK-MTD (Making Tax Digital), SAF-T, Spain SII, and Hungary RTR.

What is UK MTD?

"Making Tax Digital is making fundamental changes to the way the tax system works in the UK to become more effective, more efficient, and easier for taxpayers to get their tax right. As of 1 April 2022, all VAT-registered businesses must sign up for Making Tax Digital and are required to use MTD-compatible software to keep their records digitally and submit VAT returns. "

How can Vertex help support UK MTD?

  • Vertex VAT Compliance is a cloud-based MTD-compatible software. It is recognized by HMRC as digital “record-keeping software” which enables businesses to meet the requirements of UK MTD, including:
    • Submitting VAT returns
    • Viewing submitted VAT returns
    • Checking what VAT you owe
    • Viewing VAT payment history
