EY Global VAT reporting tool (GVRT)

A cloud-based, scalable platform for comprehensive data preparation, reporting and transaction processing to tax.

Tax authorities around the world are introducing new reporting obligations and transaction-level reporting — which means businesses are under increasing pressure to stay compliant and up to date with the latest requirements. EY professionals developed GVRT to help companies insource their indirect tax function by leveraging the latest value-added tax (VAT) reporting technology available, redefining the standards of indirect tax compliance reporting. It helps simplify, automate and digitize VAT/GST reporting.

What EY can do for you

As increasing numbers of tax authorities around the world introduce new reporting obligations, businesses are under growing pressure to stay compliant with the complex requirements and changes. The introduction of transaction level reporting makes this even more challenging, removing the ability and the time to manually interact with data before its submission to governments.

EY Global Technology helps in keeping appropriate compliance levels today while future-proofing one’s organization for tomorrow.

Redefining the approach to insourced compliance
