As our fiscal representation business grew it became clear that the headache of global VAT payments still remained for our clients. Many clients were having to make multiple payments to different countries, often in different currencies, with different payment deadlines and different payment referencing formats every month.

TaxPay is the Desucla VAT payment service that is offered to clients to address some of the challenges of cross-border VAT payment. The TaxPay portal offers a cost effective & time-saving solution to enable mass global VAT payments. In partnership with WorldFirst the platform leverages cutting-edge financial technology to offer fast, reliable settlement.

HOW IT WORKS

Every merchant registering for Desucla fiscal representation is allocated their own unique settlement account(s) exclusively for the payment of their VAT (USD, GBP, EUR, CAD, AUD, JPY, NZD, SGD, HKD are available). When a tax return is submitted to the authorities, the merchant or their authorized VAT compliance provider logs into the Desucla platform and shares the VAT amounts due by country.

The Desucla system e-mails a payment request to the merchant. The merchant clicks through in the e-mail and logs into the Desucla platform to review.

The merchant reviews the required VAT payments and selects how they would like to pay for each country (direct to tax authority themselves or via Desucla TaxPay). For countries where they select Desucla TaxPay they can select what currency they would like to settle the funds in.

The merchant confirms their selection and is shown what payment(s) need to be made. They then log on to their online banking and instruct the required payment(s). Only a single payment is needed to their unique Desucla bank account if making onward payment(s) via TaxPay but multiple payments may be required if paying direct to tax authorities.

Upon receipt of funds, TaxPay will instantly payout the required amounts to relevant tax authorities in required currency(s) and in line with local payment requirements. The system will send payment confirmation to the merchant and update statements and records in the platform automatically. For Direct payment(s) the merchant or their compliance provider will need to upload proof of payment(s) to the Desucla platform.

The Desucla platform has intelligent payment reference and beneficiary checking to minimize errors and ensure a seamless experience every time.
