Implementing technology to support the tax function
Selecting and implementing new tax software can be challenging—it is important to design and configure it leveraging leading practices and according to your specific tax requirements. Complicating your ability to comply with global tax requirements are complex cross border supply chains, extensive product catalogues with a mix of taxability, limitations to current ERP setups, data in the wrong format, and limited audit trails.
