A Dutch leading accountancy, tax advice, governance, risk management and compliance consultancy company is looking for automated solutions that may support medium sized companies in international trade compliance and security.

The Dutch company is looking for innovative SME's who can offer solutions to assess the validity of third party data and third party trade transactions to improve international trade compliance and security. The cooperation will be in the frame of a research or technical cooperation agreement. This technology request refers to an innovation challenge published on an open innovation platform.

The Dutch organization is one of the leading firms operating in the areas of accountancy, tax advice, governance, risk management and compliance. They have the 6th largest network company in the world in terms of staff and locations.

They have advised and supported numerous financial institutions and industrial corporations within the aerospace and defence, energy/oil & gas, technology, manufacturing and logistics in managing major integrity and reputational risks associated with their business activities. Their services range from initial scans to risk assessments and comprehensive designs and tests of effectiveness.  

Definition of the request
Medium sized firms are facing difficulties in adhering to cross-border trade compliance obligations such as tax, customs and VAT, sanctions, export controls, corruption and bribery and other finance and economic crime risks. Assessments of these risks are a major hurdle for these medium sized firms in terms of costs, effort and proper understanding. In the ever-changing industry with increased regulations and a strive for efficiency, automated solutions are inevitable.
