Webinar: Marketplaces and sellers - Navigating the cross-border tax journey
ITR and Vertex will host a webinar on June 28 at 4pm BST to explore the challenges facing online sellers and marketplaces after COVID-19, and to discuss ways to improve indirect tax efficiency and compliance.
Join our experts, Jordi Sol, senior manager of international tax innovation at Taxamo (a Vertex Inc company) and Anitha Chakravarthi, global head of indirect tax and tax technology at Ebay, to discuss topics including:
Sellers vs marketplaces
Not all marketplaces provide the level of support with tax compliance that sellers are looking for. In a competitive landscape, marketplaces need to adapt their offering to meet the demands of their clients. This is particularly important as tax authorities impose increasingly stringent data requirements.
Removing marketplace friction
Which issues are causing obstacles to marketplace business success? Marketplace growth, in particular, can be hindered by indirect tax complexity. Anitha and Jordi will discuss the tax challenges for marketplaces and how to tackle them.
Delivering for customers
Both marketplaces and sellers have the same ultimate goal: to deliver what the end customer wants. However, tax can get in the way of achieving this. Anitha will share how using technology and working collaboratively with sellers can help a marketplace reach its potential.
Indirect tax changes
Setting the challenges to marketplaces and sellers in the wider landscape of indirect tax changes, Anitha and Jordi will discuss the vast changes that have happened - and are still happening - in the regulatory landscape.
Increasing reporting requirements such as e-invoicing and continuous transaction controls (CTCs) are just some of the changes that indirect tax teams should be keeping an eye on.
Tax technology options
In an increasingly digital world, where tax authorities are requiring increasing access to accurate near-real-time data, tax technology in some form is the only way to manage compliance.
Anitha and Jordi will discuss the options available to marketplaces and sellers seeking to improve their accuracy and compliance through automation, up-to-date content, and comprehensive data management.
This webinar will explore these topics and more, drawing on Jordi’s tax technology expertise and Anitha’s experience as the head of indirect tax at of one of the biggest marketplaces in the world.
The webinar at 4pm BST will be moderated by ITR’s Alice Jones and will be followed by a Q&A session.
