Basware is now offering a fapiao-compliant e-invoice receiving and validation solution. Via its Chinese partner, Shanghai Yodoo Information & Technology, Basware connects its network to the Golden Tax System (GTS), enabling effortless validation of all local VAT invoices, known as fapiaos, against the GTS interface.
“This milestone provides a huge sigh of relief for our customers because so many conduct business with China and have always struggled to efficiently process and validate fapiaos,” states Sami Nikula, Director Network Services, Basware. “This solution eliminates the burden for AP staff and allows them to uniformly process all their invoices, regardless of country of origin. Business dealings know no borders, so we have put the onus on ourselves to serve as the invoice regulation and compliance experts for our customers so that they don’t have to -- essentially enabling a ‘set it and forget it’ process. We are excited about the number of customers already interested in implementation.”
The Basware solution adds China-specific functionality for the GTS validation step allowing customers to quickly and easily detect invalid invoices. Most companies are currently validating invoices one by one via the GTS portal before payment. This extra feature in the Basware P2P system significantly reduces AP staffs’ workload as users can easily route these invoices to the exception handling queue so that they aren’t inadvertently paid.
“This is an exciting step for both Basware and Yodoo,” states Vincent Wang, CEO, Shanghai Yodoo Information & Technology Co., Ltd. “We look forward to continued cooperation with Basware in providing their customers with compliant and seamless validation of local invoices in China.”
This Basware solution is also able to process the new special VAT e-invoice, which the State Taxation Administration of China piloted in 2020 and rolled out to the whole country as an option at the beginning of this year.
