In fiscal year ‘21, Sovos completed seven acquisitions in six countries, a 250% increase in M&A activity over the prior 12 months. This momentum was quickly followed by three completed acquisitions in the first quarter of fiscal year ‘22 and a signed agreement for a fourth.

Today, global tax software provider Sovos announced it has expanded its customer base 164% through acquisitions and organic growth since the beginning of its fiscal year in July. While the digitization of tax and continuous transaction controls (CTCs), like e-invoicing, have affected large enterprises for years, those compliance burdens are increasingly felt by small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), as well as local subsidiaries of global companies. As a result, Sovos’ new customers include multi-nationals, mid-market brands, and a rapidly growing segment of SMBs.

The Evolution of Global Tax Compliance
Governments around the world are compelling digital transformation in pursuit of real-time or near real-time visibility into business transactions to increase revenue streams and close tax gaps. Throughout the Americas, across Europe and beyond, the converging e-transformation of government and business makes it nearly impossible for companies of any size to keep pace with ever-changing mandates without technology-enabled services and solutions.

In order to fulfill its mission to Solve Tax for Good®, Sovos has built the most complete suite of solutions and services for modern tax through organic innovation and strategic acquisitions, with cloud-based offerings for tax determination, CTC compliance, tax reporting and more. In fiscal year ‘21, Sovos completed seven acquisitions in six countries, a 250% increase in M&A activity over the prior 12 months. This momentum was quickly followed by three completed acquisitions in the first quarter of fiscal year ‘22 and a signed agreement for a fourth.

“Governments are driving the digital transformation of tax, and businesses have no choice but to keep up. This is a challenge that could affect everything from day-to-day operations to strategic IT initiatives. Sovos supports businesses with a global strategy and local expertise to meet the demands of this transformation, and you see that approach in everything we do,” said Andy Hovancik, CEO, Sovos.
