Services - we use the power of modern computing to identify VAT contained in corporate expense data

We specialize in VAT management technology and use the power of modern computing to identify and quantify implied VAT contained in corporate expense data. Our services are intended to make the process of reporting on in-country VAT and recovering foreign VAT as simple, timely and transparent as possible.

We offer two services in support of these objectives (click on the title to expand):


      VAT Recovery Services
These services are tailored for companies that incur substantial amounts of recoverable foreign VAT and are seeking to maximize their VAT refund potential through outsourced VAT reclamation services.

For companies that wish to maximize their VAT refund potential through outsourced VAT reclamation services, autoVAT provides three recovery options:

Agency Services

1) Standard VAT Processing Service

On a quarterly basis we analyze our clients' corporate expense data and produce Invoice Collection Lists. These lists identify invoices that contain recoverable VAT and are economically viable to retrieve and submit for reclamation. Our clients use these lists to collect expense documentation and then forward it to autoVAT for reclamation processing.

2) Full Service (on-site) VAT Processing Service

In addition to the Standard VAT Processing Services described above, autoVAT staff travel the premises of our Full Service clients and perform the document collection activity. An added benefit of this service is our ability to map the items identified on the Invoice Collection List to the location of the documents, greatly reducing the typical disruption associated with document collection.

All Agency Services include:

  • VAT Opportunity Reports to quantify VAT exposure
  • Invoice Collection Lists to expedite document collection
  • Automated VAT reclamation processing using autoVAT® technology
  • Submission of applications to tax ministries and management of all correspondence with tax authorities
  • Recovery of VAT incorrectly charged by vendors
  • Increased VAT recovery through pursuit of missing VAT documents
  • Automated quarterly refund tracking reports

Non-Agency Services

For companies that prefer to take a more active role in the VAT recovery process in return for lower commission rates, we also provide a Non-Agency offering.

3) VAT Application Preparation Service

If an electronic data source is available, we will create an Invoice Collection List to assist with the collection of expense documentation, which is forwarded to autoVAT.

Our autoVAT® software then creates VAT refund applications and provides these to our clients for submission to the appropriate tax authority, along with detailed instructions for submission. VAT refunds are then received directly by our clients.

All Non-Agency Services include:

  • VAT Opportunity Reports to quantify VAT exposure
  • Invoice Collection Lists to expedite document collection
  • Automated creation of reclaim applications using autoVAT® technology
  • Provision of detailed instructions on how to submit the applications


      VAT Reporting Services
These services are designed to help corporations complete their in-country VAT compliance filings in an accurate, efficient manner.

For corporations or their subsidiaries that are VAT-registered in countries charging VAT, our VAT Reporting Services can improve the accuracy and efficiency of in-country VAT filing efforts. Our service is designed to support the quantification of VAT on high-volume, low-value transactions such as those incurred on corporate purchasing or travel cards.

Our reports provide a highly-accurate calculation of VAT in cases where it is not contained in transaction data. This is extremely valuable, as the majority of purchasing card and credit card transactions do not currently contain the VAT amount.

The reports can be used for validation, determination, or reconciliation purposes, and can represent a substantial savings in manual effort traditionally expended in these areas.

Reporting can be organized by country, business unit, and VAT directive (i.e., 6th, 8th or 13th).
