Sovos and Tradeshift Make Tax Compliance Simple

Each year, tax authorities introduce new, stricter regulations and requirements for how organizations and businesses need to collect and report their value-added tax (VAT) information. With global trade expanding and countries that all have their own rules and regulations to adhere to, it can quickly become overwhelming and time-consuming for supply chain professionals to ensure they are meeting all compliance requirements. As new compliance regulations are rolled out, these complex regimes can make it tough to ensure your company is VAT compliant.

Tax compliance is a critical and integral part of your business processes. Without ensuring all regulations and requirements are met, you open the door to fees, risks, and restrictions. At Tradeshift, we know the demand for an organization that understands and upholds all tax compliance requirements. In countries that mandate e-invoicing, the invoice becomes the single point that companies need to get right the first time — if your invoice is not approved by the tax authority, this could cause operational disruption. Getting this right is not just an accounting, tax reporting, or penalty concern anymore, but rather a real-time operational and supply chain obstacle for the continuity of your business altogether.

That’s why we’ve partnered with Sovos to help ensure all your supply chains and organizations are compliant and running smoothly. 


“Sovos fits into this model perfectly as we integrate with any existing system or infrastructure to solve tax challenges globally…Indirect tax compliance and global reporting are becoming stricter, more complex, and enforcement is ramping up. Companies can no longer afford to patch together makeshift solutions from local providers. They need a robust, global solution to meet the requirements of government overseers. Together Sovos and Tradeshift can ‘Solve Tax for Good.’”

  • Christiaan Van Der Valk, Vice President of Strategy, at Sovos


As a tax technology firm, Sovos is built for the constantly evolving and complex modern tax landscape. Sovos believes that tax compliance should never be a barrier or hindrance for any organization. That’s why their team of over 2,000 employees works across over 70 different countries to provide the tools, and support businesses need to ensure compliance in their organizations.

Recently, Tradeshift helped present Sovos’ 12th edition of their annual trends report, “VAT Trends: Toward Continuous Transaction Controls.” This report compiles all the information working professionals need to know about tax compliance trends, future insights, best practices, and updated requirements.
