A technology powered approach to help businesses keep track of current and future e-invoicing & e-reporting obligations.

Global e-invoicing and e-reporting rules are changing at lightning speed

Multiple global and local trends are impacting the current ITX landscape and are challenging businesses to adapt existing ITX procedures and solutions. 

Indeed, globally we are seeing a strong push towards electronic compliance obligations. These obligations imposed by tax authorities around the globe have more than tripled over a very short period of time. 

Yet, the pace of change keeps accelerating with new mandatory electronic invoicing and electronic reporting obligations on the horizon in many countries, including some of the largest EU economies. 

Businesses wish to evaluate how they will monitor their current & future obligations as well as how they respond and update their various systems and processes in a timely manner to ensure these remain legally compliant.

Electronic Compliance Radar - FAQs

What obligations are captured/analysed by the Electronic Compliance Radar?

  • Mandatory e-invoicing obligations: Requirements under which taxpayers are obliged to exchange invoices/transactional data electronically, using a pre-defined format and/or requiring the invoices to be exchanged via a (government-run) platform. The platform will approve the invoice before the next business processing step can take place. 
  • (Close to) real-time obligations: Requirements under which incoming and/or outgoing transactional data must be reported to the tax authorities in a (near) real-time frame, usually within a few working days, in a pre-defined format. The taxpayer’s data is sent to the tax authorities and does not necessarily return any approval messages back to the platform. There are no dependencies in the underlying business process (no need to receive approval/rejection messages before the next business processing step can take place).
  • (On request) e-audit obligations: Requirements whereby a taxable person should be able to extract and present accounting data in a pre-defined format upon request of the tax authorities (e.g. SAF-T reporting, and other data-export functionalities for audit purposes).
