The cloud solution Advataxes, on expense reports, is operated in a Canadian data center and efficiently uses smartphones and digital images of employee expense receipts.
Using a direct link to a financial institution (more than 100 available), each employee can upload a list of credit card transactions in order to facilitate the completion of an expense report. Each employee can then attach an electronic invoice to each transaction.
The distance in kilometers between 2 addresses or points of interest is automatically calculated (one way or round trip), so is the amount to reimburse and the GST/HST/QST claimable
A financial transaction software award was given to Advataxes by Levvel Research in the category "Innovative Travel Technology" due to innovation for handling GST/HST and QSTSee Details
