About Avatar

Avatar Technologies Ltd (ATL) provides cutting-edge Electronic Revenue Assurance (ERA) solutions to revenue authorities. Avatar Technologies was founded by Global Voice Group S.A (GVG), technology specialists in financial protection and revenue generation systems since 1998.

Avatar Technologies is directly supported by GVG, and so brings to revenue authorities:

  • GVG’s many years of experience in providing technology-driven revenue assurance solutions
  • The expertise resulting from GVG’s track record of approximately 1.5 billion USD over eight years in new revenue generated for governments of emerging countries.

Our Mission

Our mission is to increase domestic tax revenue so as to reduce dependence on foreign aid—creating governments that are empowered, self-reliant, and free from external interference—countries able to determine their own futures. GVG’s many years of revenue-assurance experience in Africa has imbued Avatar (ATL) with a first-hand understanding of:

  • the use of technology to fight tax evasion
  • the under-declaration of revenues
  • fiscal fraud

The introduction of billing systems at the point of sale prevents tax evasion, the under-declaration of revenues and fiscal fraud.
