Key developments in 2023

2023 was a record year for Pagero at many levels. Organic revenue grew 33% (vs 23% in 2022) and its customer base exceeded 95k businesses reaching a network of 14m+ businesses. Pagero continued to expand its global footprint as more countries introduced e-invoicing and reporting mandates. In early 2024, Thomson Reuters acquired Pagero, ending Summa’s seven-year ownership. During this period, revenues have more than quadrupled through best-in-class product development and significant geographical expansion.

How does Pagero help?

Reality today

Corporates struggle to meet compliance regulations due to a lack of a standardized process for business communications, leading to a widened VAT gap.

Pagero approach

Pagero automates business transactions between stakeholders to ensure compliance regulations are met across markets.

Aspirational future

Non-compliance and VAT loss is mitigated and efficiencies in transactions are realized, benefitting the government and the environment.

Who is impacted?

Civilians benefit as the VAT gap is diminished, generating more resources for governments. Emerging economies benefit disproportionately from expanded financial infrastructure. The planet benefits from minimizing the carbon footprint of financial transactions.

Contribution

Pagero enables corporate stakeholders to comply with regulations across markets and contributes to the ability of public institutions to minimize the VAT gap through automated transactions software.

Risks

Impact is less clear if Pagero primarily works in markets where the VAT gap is meaningfully more present.
