Advataxes Overview

What is Advataxes?

Advataxes is an online accounting solution designed to help enterprises and non-profit organizations manage and automate the recovery of Canadian Value Added Taxes, including GST, HST and QST, on employee expenses. The solution automatically updates rules or changes in tax rates, streamlining expense tracking operations for companies.

Businesses can utilize the Advataxes platform to convert foreign currencies, including Euro, British Pound, US dollar, and more, to Canadian Dollars based on weekly rates. It provides a delegation functionality, which allows users to fill out an expense report for another person, and provides administrators with tools to configure approvals levels, preventing fraud. Plus, it comes with a management reporting module for businesses to access reports for attributes such as tax paid, factoring method, spending, and more.

Advataxes facilitates integration with several accounting applications, which allows users to pull data in various formats such as .CSV or Excel. Employees can utilize a mobile web interface to create expense claims, capture receipts, and submit expense reports even from remote locations.

Very user-friendly expense management platform!


Francois L.

Nice tool !

- We no longer need to have different excel spreadsheets for each provinces (for different tax rates), and we do not need to update some of the changing tax features, such as large companies.
- Reduce paper printed.
- Easier approval process
- Very good customer services


Sebastien C.

Good concept, still place for improvement

Good! But definitively place for improvement on user friendliness.


Flora S.

User friendly, quick access to information

I use the software both as a user to do my expense reports and to approve and process the expense reports of other employees and the software is so user-friendly that requires little training to get familiarize with. It is a great tool to track the approval process of the reports and to make reports to see how much is being spent by employees and by departments. The only downside of the software is that it does not provide the total amount being spent in each account, you have to do it manually by downloading the report in excel format and arranging it yourself. Other than that, is a great software if you are looking to go paperless since it gives you the option to upload receipts straight from your phone or computer as an attachment.

Pros

Easy to navigate, you can save reports and continue later.

Cons

If it had an smartphone app too, that would be perfect!

Response from Ad Valorem

Hi John, Thank you for your review. Although we don't yet have a smartphone app and we should look into it, we have a smartphone or «mobile» login on the main page that you can use to fill out an expense report, take a picture of your receipt, and submit your report. You should note that the current mobile login has fewer functionalities than the login connection.

Good! But definitively place for improvement on user friendliness.

Pros

Scanning of invoice right away. Easy place to store the invoice picture

Cons

Unable to write a title to a scanned invoice for easy usage later on.
Unable to forward a pdf invoice received in an email (from an hotel).
No app on iPhone so not able to use without Internet access.
Not able to start simultaneously two separate expense reports (for example, one for expenses on Company credit card and one for expenses made on personal credits card or else, like traveling kilometer expenses).

Response from Ad Valorem

Thank you for your feedback this is much appreciated. As for the total per account, if your profile set-up includes a tab called "Reports" then you should see it in the menu bar, then In the drop down there is a selection for "account summary" and "Category summary" that may provide what you are looking for, Do not hesitate to set up a time for a call at [email protected]
