EInvoicing & Automation

It’s a VAT Gap And You’ve Been Caught!



…without a solution for it.

For something that makes life easier and more efficient, the world of eInvoicing can sometimes seem complex and daunting. And for a company trying to do the right thing, it can be hard to keep up. As the conversation around einvoicing moves from "if" to "when," organisations can find themselves caught in a quandary over what’s best for them, leading to business-damaging procrastination over decisions, or worse – not making one at all.
But with eInvoicing mandates spreading across Europe and globally, it’s a decision that business can’t afford to delay. While a mandate is unlikely to be enforced in the UK any time soon, it will be by many of our trading partners.

Accounts Payable Automation: the solution to supply chain disruption?

Mark Blakemore circleBy Mark Blakemore, Chief Financial Officer at Compleat Software

With the pound falling, interest rates rising, talk of the UK entering a recession - the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is yet again at front and centre stage to help provide solutions to the seemingly impossible.

With a recent study of CFOs finding that 73% view economic uncertainty as a significant challenge for their organisation - the CFO needs to find answers, and fast.

CFOs wear many hats and are well-positioned to help to head off costly supply chain disruptions, with the support of their Supply Chain Manager, a profession which has historically faced challenges when it comes to Accounts Payable (AP) processes.

How Automation Can Help Fight the Great Resignation

We’ve probably all heard of “The Great Resignation” by now. It’s supposedly a massive trend that has millions of workers getting out of the labour pool as the pandemic had them reassess their work-life priorities. Economists who are digging into labour market statistics are no longer sure that people are dropping out in droves. Instead, they see a more nuanced picture emerge where employees are quitting their jobs in record numbers, but only to seek out better, more rewarding careers elsewhere. The Amherst academic Arindrajit Dube therefore prefers to call this phenomenon “The Great Reshuffling.”

Improve Bottom Line And Strengthen Supplier Relationships With AP Automation

The Problem

A staggering 71% of companies report manual data entry and incompetent Accounts Payable (AP) processes as crucial pain points.

While it's only one element of the entire ‘Procure-to-Pay’ (P2P) process, Accounts Payable remains a vital one. Errors, duplicate invoices, unmatched purchase orders etc, not only waste time and valuable resources but, these inefficiencies can impact an organisation’s bottom line due to inaccurate payments.
