“Our upcoming seminars in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, with an industry specialist, are an effort to update our vast community of small and medium businesses and enterprises of the latest regulatory changes that are now built into Focus ERP. In addition to the regulatory compliance, we will also be addressing the benefits of cloud based operational expenses models, simplification of technology complexity, and the benefits of public cloud upgrades,” Mr. Mathew added.

As guest speaker and taxation expert, Mr. Pankaj S. Jain of AskPankaj DWC, will give participants an overview of the UAE VAT process and address concerns and queries of participants on compliance, tax returns and other VAT processes. Mr. Pankaj has more than 14 years of extensive experience in India and Europe and specializes in the entire spectrum of VAT and GST indirect taxation.

"Focus Softnet wants to ensure that we go that extra mile for our customers. By partnering with industry tax experts, we want to give our customers a hands-on approach towards implementing and managing VAT inside the UAE. This seminar will also give our customers confidence in the updates that we are bringing into our solutions and keeping the solution up to date with various compliance requirements. Such a hands-on and practical approach can help small and medium businesses and enterprises jump-start their awareness and capability of managing VAT on a daily basis,” Mr. Mathew concluded.
