Developed in Austria, C@TS is an integral solution that can be implemented in any tax administration project around the world. The system can be translated into different languages and implemented in other countries with only a few adjustments. This way, we keep the duration of our projects short.

Taxpayer details include the name, address, existing tax numbers, contact details and all data that is available on a registration form for a tax regime. Depending on the regime, the details need to be captured can differ.
This service identifies all taxpayers, tax type and tax period, and creates return sheets in the system. All return sheets will get an expected return date assigned (according to the legal situation), which forms the basis for further processing.
The system uses one tax account per taxpayer to record all financial transactions. This account offers the option to distinguish between different revenue codes depending on the tax types.
Tax Credits/ Refunds
The transfer to the taxpayer’s account can be included in the payment files and exchanged with banks. This option depends on agreements with banks and the structure of the received bank files.
Risk assessment is based on the rules the administration defines. Each rule points to one or more fields in the database. Alternatively, rules can be based on calculated values.
C@TS enables users to create cases in the system for appeals, certification, enforcement, audits, debt management, etc.
