Is There Room for Innovation in VAT Recovery?
Traveldoo checked with VATBox the unique possibilities of VAT recovery with the help of innovative technology.
Many companies throw in the towel when faced with cumbersome and complex manual procedures that leave room for errors, and take little interest in reclaiming VAT on expenses. This source of savings is still seen as poorly controlled and offering limited benefits, so its real potential is often overlooked. This potential is very real, however, with an accepted savings level of 4% of a company’s expenses. So a company that repays 2 million euros in expenses can expect a potential annual saving of between €60,000 and €80 000, provided that the expenses are “compliant” in the eyes of the relevant tax authorities.
