Operate with dynamic control

In tax and finance departments

Business model evolution is accelerating more quickly than ever. Take the first step towards increasing your team’s agility and seeing your tax function as dynamic, fluid, and influential.

Embracing a more-with-less mindset

Companies are adapting to the digital era, investing in green initiatives, and mapping growth plans. They cannot do all of this without the forecasting and scenario modeling capabilities of their tax team. This creates a new business imperative for the C-suite to partner with the tax function. By no longer being consumed by routine compliance and reporting activities, the tax team is empowered to deliver increased agility and value.

Cloud: Cloud-based systems help tax departments consume, process, and leverage more data and create more strategic value for less cost.

Automation: Automation creates more operational agility, accomplishing more tasks with different resources and freeing people to do more future-focused work.

Resourcing: Blended resourcing models give tax leaders more flexibility to build or buy capacity and expertise, and to access new technologies—sparking transformative change.

Questions to ask yourself


Thoroughly assess the skill sets of your people, your technology maturity model, the business implications of the work that you are doing and the governance / compliance processes that you have in-house. By understanding the state of your department and where you need the fastest gains, you can set priorities and map the best plan to meet your business needs.


Given how rapidly data, business models and regulations change, speed matters. The faster you can modernize, the more benefit you stand to gain. Which means the further you are from using modern platforms, tapping real-time data and using your tax staff to leverage both, the more you should consider a hybrid staffing model outsourcing specific discreet functional tax processes and activities.


Exploring paths to new tax operating models can not only control costs, but they can also support real-time, accurate, forward-looking insights and processes that turn tax from a necessary cost of business into an invaluable resource that drives optimized competitiveness as well as seamless, continuous compliance.
