In partnership with Sovos, this ASUG webcast will deliver insights designed to support your work with SAP Technology. 

VAT reporting is unfamiliar to many U.S.-based companies, and it can cause major problems in international shipping and receiving. Errors in VAT reporting can lead to fines, mismatched financial reports, damaged relationships with suppliers, and cash-flow disruptions. 

Many U.S.-based companies don’t have the knowledge or resources to deal with these issues. Join our upcoming webcast to learn how to overcome the challenges of VAT reporting. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Most companies will generate VAT returns based on financial data and infostat reporting, which puts them at risk of a mismatch between financial reporting and where goods are actually going

  • Data manipulation is a huge challenge as regulations change while goods move. 

  • Foreign exchange and currency differences are a vector cash-flow risk.
