In the beginning, I joined the platform to track thresholds. As soon as I exceed the threshold in Canada, LOVAT informed me of this and offered to help with registration. It was really convenient for me! Now I do not worry about filing reports, because I know that everything will be prepared and submitted without errors and on time. All the tax issues and compliance are extensively managed by LOVAT and we have no problems with different authorities when working with the program.
  • Threshold tracking is well managed by LOVAT
  • Prices, in terms of the subscription requirements.
  • Quick and clear answers from consultants
  • information on registration - in what terms it will be carried out, the cost
  • Field with the necessary questions to make it simple for the new subscribers.
  • A list of documents to be uploaded and fields for this uploads.
  • Service Request Number to track the status of the request.

We were selling only in the US and were dealing with Sales Tax with which were familiar. However, when we decided to expand to the EU and Australia we realized that it's a completely different tax system and had many troubles in understanding how it works. Lovat team and their platform helped us by explaining everything and solved our matters with tax reporting and now we are using it for both the USA and EU and Australia as the platform supports all of these regions and we handle our tax reporting in one place in one account of our company.
  • Variety of subscription plans which are flexible thanks to possibilities of purchasing various add-ons.
  • Tax audit reports which are available for download is a great feature that allows us to have a deeper look to our transactions from different sales channels of ours.
  • The support team in always helped us with difficulties or questions that we had on different stages while working with LOVAT
  • Include bigger amount of transactions to be supported by subscription plans
  • Make 24 hour support
  • In some countries VAT returns are not submitted immediately
The automatic calculation of tax returns is absolutely great as almost no manual work is needed but the information about imports is not picked up automatically by the system and has to be filled manually. Furthermore, the filing of VAT tax among other specific taxation requirements has been resolved by LOVAT.

In our company, the platform is mainly used by the tax department.
The business task is always the same, I'm talking about the timely filing of taxes to the authorities and this brings the tax compliance aspect. And so far, we are successfully completing this task on a monthly basis without fail.
  • Responsiveness of support
  • Great speed of solving problems and questions
  • Consultation when it's needed
  • Some processes take extra time
  • It will take some time and preferably a demo call with the support team to learn how to use the software yourself
  • Unfortunately, consultation on really difficult questions can be obtained only for an additional fee
In my opinion, the Lovat team is doing an excellent job.
I got a good impression of this cooperation.
If you need help with tax issues and filing of declarations, then these guys will definitely assist you and will try to do their best so that you don't miss the deadline

We use Lovat platform for VAT filing, which is a credible business operation. The software offers clear video instructions. That is very helpful. More so, LOVAT developer issues some documentations for simple learning. I can do my tax reporting without any problems. Lastly, LOVAT focuses on tax compliance, which ensures no state collisions due to failure of accomplishing the set laws.

  • Professional support, with short waiting time for answer
  • Free trial period. That helps to test the software before purchase
  • Regular updates according to the TAX rules and requirements in different countries
  • The support is only in English
  • No available support during weekends
  • Some search option of a specific transaction would be helpful
It's well suited for e-commerce companies that sell abroad in various regions since it collects all the different data from different regions in countries in one place. However, for domestic sales it can't be the best solution as probably your domestic accountancy will require more professional tools. The program also supports tax compliance and accountability for companies.

We have solved the problem of our accountancy department having to dedicate a full time of our accountant in the main office just to fill excel spreadsheets for each country of reporting. We've also solved the problem of being sure that VAT was calculated correctly and tax rates are valid because our previous system didn’t have any automation. We were never sure when the tax rate had changed. We are sure that everything is valid and legally binding with LOVAT.
  • I love that we don’t need to send tax transaction data for our sales to LOVAT – it is simply integrated with our e-stores!
  • It makes the process so much faster than filling excel spreadsheets or uploading manually. At the end of the month, we simply see all of the data in our LOVAT account.
  • Collecting data takes time, and it's a waste of time when we can do it digitally.
  • I like that we can make some fields required and some optional and that I can use multiple selling platforms and be sure that I'm getting valid tax data.
  • I dislike that you have to have a departure address set for each order to calculate tax. A lot of our goods are stored in several warehouses, and I cannot predict where would be departure address.
  • It can also be overwhelming how many options there are when setting up the tax settings section. I wish it were easier to set up fields based on fields being checked with checkboxes.
You need a way to calculate VAT on your remote sales and store tax documents electronically. As part of your evaluation, I would include LOVAT as an option. With LOVAT, we can also avoid asking clients to provide additional information at check out, which keeps our conversion rate higher. It's so easy to upload tax data, calculate VAT, and submit VAT forms

We have purchased a subscription for filing tax returns, as this is specialized software for these purposes. You know, it's much easier to purchase a subscription to use the platform than to understand all the tax details yourself. The subscription cost is incredibly small in terms of our business, and as a result, we get a lot of saved time.
  • First of all, this is the pricing, it is really small for such processes even if you want to add any additional services.
  • Integration with our web shop directly in the account. All data from our store with few clicks.
  • Some processes like uploading of transactions may take extra time, but finally, it's not too much of an average wait time.
  • Some features can be done only by LOVAT manager - VAT number activation for example.
If there is a need to file your taxes to the tax authorities - this is a great software to do this.

Currently with the help of LOVAT we were registered in EU country for VAT and going to submit VAT reports. Support team always helps us with all of requested questions in regards to the process of registration and using of this soft as well. By the way, I was thinking that's this will be much troublesome, but everything went without difficulties.
  • Unexpensive price!
  • Easiest way to register for VAT
  • Responsive customer support
  • Process may take your time because it's directly related to the tax authorities of requested country
  • It would be great to add 24/7 support, at this time support may only help you on the working days during the working week
  • That's all, I really liked everything else
Such a solution definitely suits any company / sole trader who wants successfully expand the business and use such an easy way to register and filling of VAT reports as well together with Lovat team

We use LOVAT to fill sales tax returns for our sales in the U.S. As we sell remotely, we have tax obligations in four states and control thresholds to others. Also we ensure there are no tax compliance issues from the administration because the software helps us in following the stated rules in a country.
  • LOVAT live-chat is very helpful for me.
  • Tax reminders and payment memos help me to be on time with our reporting obligations.
  • Tax news helps me to be up to date with all changes in the field.
  • They have live chat support only during working hours. It would be great to have a 24/7 live chat.
  • LOVAT should be quite flexible for some editing.
  • LOVAT should include a CRM solution, which could be a better way.
It is better for online remote businesses. It is not fit for domestic sales tax filing for companies with US tax. Integrations are the best part of this platform so companies with online stores are the best fit. To avoid tax issues, LOVAT has given clear tax policies for businesses.

As we have our business operating both in the EU and the USA, the solution LOVAT offers to cover both regions completely suits our needs to overcome our tax obligations. Also, LOVAT ensures that the entire process required for filing returns is done effectively and on time. Furthermore, LOVAT establishes a learning curve, so individuals understand the general tax policies.
  • Support was nice and helpful during all the steps of setting up everything
  • Easy to understand and user-friendly software
  • Possibility to file both VAT for EU and sales tax for the U.S.
  • Only English, Spanish, and Chinese versions of the software--would be great to add more translations
  • The support team is available only during working days
  • No search option of specific transaction uploaded to the platform--only by date
It's well suited for e-commerce companies that sell abroad in various regions since it collects all the different data from different regions in one place. However, for domestic sales, it can't be the best solution as probably your domestic accountancy will require more professional tools for effective business execution.
