“Multinational companies are struggling with the shifting tax regulatory landscape,” said Kevin Permenter, senior analyst at IDC. “Sovos offers these organizations tremendous value by providing coverage for every form of transaction-level tax compliance in one solution.

A complete solution on a reliable, scalable and secure cloud platform
The report highlights Sovos’ strong cloud software solution, the Sovos Intelligent Compliance Cloud, which is the world’s first complete solution for modern tax. It combines traditional tax determination and reporting tools for sales and use tax, VAT and other transactional taxes with modern, digital reporting and e-invoicing compliance software. The solution is supported by the company’s S1 cloud platform, which enables Sovos to do the hard work for businesses, handling their compliance across all financial systems, while supporting them with highly reliable, scalable and secure cloud infrastructure.

The world’s first global e-invoicing compliance solution
As governments around the world – from Brazil to Italy – race to close value-added tax (VAT) gaps, they are implementing various e-invoicing compliance models, a tax modernization system that requires companies to comply with indirect tax laws at the invoice level. These new requirements, which are often real-time, are pushing the digital transformation of every financial system.

According to the IDC MarketScape report, “multiple customers cited Sovos’ capability with e-invoicing compliance as one of the major benefits of choosing their solution.”¹ Today, Sovos eInvoice provides coverage to countries in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.
 
Global reach
As the report mentions, Sovos has aggressive growth plans. Over the past five years, the company has made eight acquisitions, which have propelled its footprint and coverage into 60 countries. With 12 offices spread across three continents, Sovos now safeguards more than 5,000 global customers that do business in the world’s most complex regulatory environments.

“Traditional tax software wasn’t built for today’s era of digital tax enforcement. In response, we’ve built a complete, modern cloud software solution that prepares businesses for a world where tax is part of every transaction,” said Andy Hovancik, president and CEO at Sovos. “We’re committed to helping our customers build tax into the digital financial core of their business where it belongs, so they can Solve Tax for Good and focus more time on growing their businesses.”
