How does it work?
The Blue dot tax compliance platform harnesses digitisation, tax compliance and automation to process and analyse a company’s employee spend data for VAT and taxable employee benefits in real time.
Blue dot automatically integrates with your EMS system. It analyses the invoices and processes them in accordance with the different laws and regulations per country, taking the collected data – invoices, employee expense reports, and attached receipts – and turning it into a comprehensive and validated transactional data set. Every piece of information is extracted from the attached receipt using computer vision and AI, and then matched with the employee’s reporting side. After the full audit and compliance process is completed, the data is seamlessly exported back into your EMS system.
PwC’s automated platform performs transactional tax compliance, data and process quality management and compliance reporting in a single application, backed by PwC’s global network. The integrated data-analytics driven solution delivers enhanced management insights and control of operational tax risk, providing greater visibility and increased transparency.
