Brightflag’s tax code engine allows you to automate the compliance of tax rates submitted by your vendors. This negates the need for your Accounts Payable team to manually check tax compliance on invoices, by automatically ensuring valid tax rates are itemized at the beginning of the invoice submittal process.
To configure your company’s tax engine, Brightflag can provide you with a spreadsheet template. This template can be shared with your company’s AP team, who can populate it. Once your AP team has populated the template, all you need to do is send the template over to your designated Brightflag Customer Success Manager. From there, they can enable the tax engine for use on your company's account.
Any ad-hoc updates to your tax rates or codes can be sent to Brightflag via an SFTP, which will be automatically uploaded to your Brightflag account.
The tax engine can handle any number of tax code, at any level of jurisdiction. For example, we would be able to handle an invoice in Latin America with taxes at the municipal, state or federal levels.
There is only a slight change required in your vendor’s invoice submission process, which is described here: Entering Tax Codes for PDF Invoice Submissions
