Mr. Dao Quang Thuan was known as an expert in the hospitality industry. In 2020, when the Covid-19 pandemic occurred in Vietnam, BedLinker - a B2B e-commerce platform in the field of tourism and hospitality founded by him was severely affected.

Realizing that in the current market, most businesses received information and issued invoices manually with cumbersome procedures. After exchanging information with customers, business staff must manually record paper invoices and then issue them to customers. With paper VAT invoices, it easily got confused with other papers, making it difficult to control and run statistics. Not to mention, after collecting paper VAT invoices, it was necessary for human resources to enter, manage, and transfer information to relevant departments, which was both time consuming and laborious, and easy to make mistakes.

Quickly recognizing the potential from the inadequacy when issuing traditional red invoices while the business was facing the situation of being suspended, without hesitation, in February 2020, Mr. Thuan decided to compact the BedLinker apparatus and established VATNOW Company with the mission of developing VATNOW application on mobile platform to support users and sales units to digitize and automate processes for requesting and issuing VAT invoices for businesses.
