With the generalization of electronic invoicing (by 2024), companies will have to issue, transmit and receive invoices in electronic form and transmit the invoice data to the tax authorities.​

In this context, companies are obliged to carry out the required due diligence regarding VAT and a reliable audit trail of invoices.

searchAnomaly analysis

A Focus on anomalies.

Based on our experience, it appears that the quality and reality of intra-Community VAT numbers in the reference systems is often very poor. Thus, to illustrate this observation, some figures are to be underlined on the basis of the missions that we were able to carry out: * about 15% of the VAT fields are not filled in the repositories * when the field is filled in, the rate of anomalies varies between 15% and 30%. * Finally, very often, 25% of the company names entered have little correspondence with the company names known to the tax authorities

How does TVA Identification analyze your customer and supplier repository data?
The tool allows you to retrieve automatically and at a defined frequency the new data loaded, then to query the VIES database of the European Commission and INSEE completed by various treatments:
  • Deposit of your customer and supplier VAT data in a secure Cloud space by PwC;
  • Detection of erroneous or unknown VAT numbers;
  • Obtaining "EU verification codes" for valid codes, attesting to the VIES verification;
  • Automatic verification of the consistency of company names with your own reference data;
  • Verification of the conformity of the VAT numbers and the identification of the companies to which they refer;
  • Visualization, analysis and reporting: you have access to dashboards that are periodically and automatically refreshed.
What is the "VIES"?
The VIES is a European system for the exchange of information on VAT which makes it possible to check the validity of the intra-community VAT number of companies.
