VAT/GST automation

Indirect tax

Combining Indirect Tax technical, technology and industry experience, Deloitte helps organisations with embedding technology to manage compliance with increasingly prevalent real-time reporting requirements and creating opportunities for improved insight, data alignment, efficiencies and transparency over their Indirect Tax affairs.

In an increasingly demanding global environment, managing tax responsibilities and planning for tax issues are becoming more complex.

Over the years, Deloitte has invested in developing the multifaceted skill sets required to be a key partner when it comes to defining VAT/GST strategies, helping businesses select and implement the right supportive technology and providing rollout support aligned with legal and regulatory requirements.
Our services include:

Indirect Tax data management, reporting and analytics

Complex Indirect Tax obligations and real-time reporting requirements heighten the need for immediate access to reliable, accurate and fit-for-purpose, sensitised tax data. If challenges such as version control, manual data collection, or getting the right level of data are delaying accurate reporting and insights, tax data management and analytics services can help.

We’ll help you build a reliable Indirect Tax data model that harnesses automation and business process control to generate the right data at the right time. Automated data input, validation and cleansing saves time and reduces risk, giving you faster access to the tax-sensitised data both you and the tax authorities need. Our Deloitte professionals are fluent in both tax and technology. We can help you evaluate and select tax technology, or design and implement third-party software to handle complex tasks, including VAT calculations and reporting. You can trust our experienced tax team with your tax data and technology needs, freeing your tax professionals to focus on valuable strategic work.

ERP systems support

Tax is complex—as are ERP systems. But, when implemented correctly, such systems can serve as critical supports for organisational goals. In a Deloitte study, 56% of tax and finance leaders who described themselves as having advanced skills in this area rated ERP systems as highly effective for business support.

Every ERP implementation should be Indirect Tax aligned. Indirect Tax drives various needs, including being prepared to report in line with rapidly changing global Indirect Tax regulations, managing real-time reporting requirements and handling other information reporting needs. For clients seeking to execute on these developments, we help clients take these considerations into account during ERP design, implementation and maintenance. In short, we act as your advocate for Indirect Tax in an ERP project, helping write indirect tax requirements, identifying necessary outcomes, crafting design options and providing support and advice throughout the implementation. We help you, the technical tax experts in your organisation, understand Indirect Tax sensitivities associated with ERP implementations and identify needs related to your Indirect Tax processes across the essential design, build and testing stages.

Indirect Tax technology systems implementation

Selecting and implementing new tax software can be challenging—particularly if you want to design and configure it leveraging leading practices and according to your unique requirements.

Deloitte’s tax technology systems professionals are experienced in implementing leading, third-party Indirect Tax software, as well as our own proprietary Indirect Tax compliance software. Whether you’re working with a Deloitte, third-party, or proprietary system, we can help you gather Indirect Tax requirements, design Indirect Tax processes, build and configure activities, test Indirect Tax outputs and train users.
