DK VAT review for public institutions

Has VAT been accounted 100 % correct?
Let Kaunt do the checking.

VAT can be a complicated affair for public companies. Different VAT rates apply across the many supplier invoice and it is easy to make errors. Kaunt keeps an eye on all invoices and makes sure that your VAT accounting is fully compliant.


Despite our books having been scrutinized by external sales tax experts during 2013 to 2015, the AI-based algorithms of Kaunt were able to discover many small posting errors regarding sales tax.

This meant that we could seek a significant sales tax refund and thereby fully finance the Kaunt solution by that alone”.
