COVID-19 VAT cashflow survival

Deciphering some of the measures available to help boost cashflow

Governments globally are looking to support businesses in the COVID-19 lockdown and recovery phases, and are using VAT as a primary measure. The immediacy and focused nature of VAT means it is doing the heavy lifting in terms of initial emergency and long-term liquidity support.

But the challenge is tracking the various measures and available solutions, which all come with complex requirements, deadlines and application obligations. Businesses risk missing boosts to cashflows and also placing additional stress on stretched finance teams who may lack the in-depth country VAT knowledge to leverage the measures being offered.

In this webinar Avalara will review the major issues, and explore how businesses can maximise the current VAT changes:

  • What VAT payment deferrals are available, and how to secure them
  • How businesses can leverage VAT to free up cashflow
  • Tips for coping with temporary VAT cuts on a global scale 
  • The benefit of future proofing your VAT technology suite
  • The hidden ROI of automation
