How to end VAT platform chaos in the EU

If you’re a business owner or accountant juggling sales across different EU countries, you know the headache of VAT compliance all too well. Each country’s tax platform speaks its own language, has a unique interface, and demands data in its own specialised format. This struggle wastes precious time and increases the risk of costly errors.

FileVAT is here to change that. FileVAT is your centralised hub for EU VAT reporting, designed to streamline the process even when facing many platforms and language barriers.

With FileVAT, you can connect all relevant data sources, overcome language hurdles, and automatically prepare your VAT returns with unparalleled accuracy. Say goodbye to frustrating platform hopping and hello to peace of mind in your VAT compliance.

Format Standardisation: Each EU country has quirks regarding how VAT data is presented. FileVAT eliminates the guesswork by automatically converting and formatting your data to match those requirements. This saves you countless hours that would otherwise be spent on manual adjustments.
