Founder: Kan Zhenfang
Founded in: 2014
Financing status: RMB 90 million (USD 13.4 million) for financing in 2017
Smart finance and taxation platform, Dazhangfang, received USD 13.4M on July 29 to expand its business to the fin-tech industry.
In this new stage of advanced science and technology services, the traditional tax industry is encountering obvious problems, such as low-efficiency accounting work, which requires too much time and leaves room for error. Being that finance, taxation, and accounting work are important for enterprises to review past work and make future plans, informatization has become necessary for the finance and tax industry.
Dazhangfang is a smart finance and taxation platform as well as an electronic invoice service system. Its services cover online bookkeeping and accounting, smart reimbursement, enterprise tax declaration and tax reimbursement for export, and more. For example, it can automatically recognize payment records on WeChat and Alipay and convert it into an electronic invoice.
Founded in Beijing in 2014, Dazhangfang currently supports more than 5000 bookkeeping companies, as well as tens of thousands of small and micro enterprises. Meanwhile, its services are available overseas, including in Malaysia, Singapore, and Vietnam.
This new financing round was led by Homa, a refrigerator ODM producer in the cooling industry in China. The capital will be used to expand its business to the fin-tech industry and invest in global expansion plans.
