  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Easiest way to register for VAT

  • Process may take your time because it's directly related to the tax authorities of requested country
