At Voyya we are focussed on helping businesses save time and ensure VAT compliance, wherever they book their hotels. Having spoken to loads of travel managers, finance managers and business travellers we have learned that they all experienced the same frustration with hotel invoices, especially when using with online booking tools like Booking.com, Expedia and Hotels.com.

 

Studies show manual processing of an invoice cost the average business €50 — not to mention lost VAT due to non-compliance or lost invoices.

Why are VAT invoices a problem?

Most booking sites are geared towards leisure travel. Business travellers often use leisure sites for their reward schemes, sleek experience, and competitive pricing. But unlike corporate travel websites, leisure booking sites lack the ability to generate VAT compliant invoices and often have hidden costs.

 

Travel invoices are not always VAT compliant. Invoices require very specific information in order for them to be submitted for tax returns. Non-compliant invoices are only found much later and cannot be corrected, causing rejection and lost VAT.

 

Collecting and processing invoices are very expensive. If you take a look at the entire invoice processing lifecycle, from the point of receiving an invoice to it being processed for payment and then submitted for VAT, the effort of manual processing on each individual invoice is a very costly activity.
