Using VAT Engine with VAT Expert

In order to create invoices that can be turned into XML files, VAT Expert can be used as a connecting bridge between the invoice and the VAT determinations that VAT Engine will produce. This is a manual process where every invoice will be created one at a time following these steps:

  1. A customer completes an invoice in VAT Expert, providing the transaction’s required information that VAT Engine needs.
  2. This information is sent to VAT Engine via VAT Expert.
  3. VAT Engine will transform these parameters into an official invoice that includes the customer’s and supplier’s fiscal obligations for a transaction.
  4. Every time a new needed fact is added to VAT Engine, it will also be available in the next version of VAT Expert.
