Watch ITR’s webinar on using technology to solve indirect tax challenges
In association with Thomson Reuters, ITR hosted a live webinar on November 17 at 8am BST (London time) / 1.30pm (India time) / 4pm (Singapore time).
Keeping up with ever-changing global indirect tax laws as well as increase in digital reporting requirements and regular tax audits are becoming a challenge for indirect tax departments and may increase the risk of non-compliance.
According to the Thomson Reuters State of Corporate Tax Report 2021, more than half of tax departments anticipate significant changes to regulatory requirements for indirect tax – more specifically on increased digitised tax filings and real-time remittance requirements. The approach to resourcing indirect tax work is either ‘predominantly’ or ‘completely’ in-house for seven-in-ten corporate tax departments surveyed. The report also reveals that half of corporate tax departments feel under-resourced.
Are traditional systems enough to stay ahead of the worldwide trend toward digital tax reporting and address the resourcing challenge?
Hear from a panel of tax experts as they share their perspectives on utilising content-driven cloud technology solutions that help drive efficiency, mitigate compliance risks and enable strategic business decisions.
This webinar also covers:
Key elements of a best-in-class indirect tax department;
Benefits of tax technology over enterprise resource planning (ERP); and
How to connect the dots within your business as well as to what’s happening around the world.
The 60-minute webinar was moderated by Deepak Bolia of Thomson Reuters, and facilitated by ITR. The webinar was followed by a Q&A session.
