Webinar: The Future of Tax Reporting


Join ITR and Thomson Reuters at 2pm (UAE) / 11am (UK) on October 13 as they discuss how businesses can prepare for Tax Administration 3.0 and future-proof against changes such as e-invoicing and increasing digitisation.

Register here for ITR and Thomson Reuters’ webinar on the rapid digitisation of tax reporting, and the risks and opportunities for multinational enterprises (MNEs) in this exciting landscape.

In this webinar, Ramy Rayan, head of consulting for VAT at Thomson Reuters MENA, will be joined by two guests to discuss how multinationals can plan for the future of tax filing while increasing their tax certainty.

Joining Ramy are:

  • Thomas Vanhee, partner at Aurifer

  • Nitin Agarwal, head of taxation at a leading UAE retailer

MNEs are contending with challenges from many sides, but none are more pervasive than the wholesale shift in the way tax reporting is carried out around the world. From real-time reporting to pre-filled VAT returns, tax directors need to be aware of changing tax legislation in the jurisdictions in which they operate, to ensure compliance and mitigate risk.

Meanwhile, businesses should be investing in technology to manage the growing compliance burden – which raises questions about which technology solutions and providers match best with the company’s needs.

In this webinar, Ramy, Thomas, and Nitin will cover questions including:

‘Tax Administration 3.0’

  • What is it and what does it mean for your business?

  • What effect will the OECD Forum on Tax Administration’s work have, practically?

  • Can technology increase the efficiency and effectiveness of tax administration?

  • How can companies minimise the burden of compliance on indirect tax teams?


  • How do you start the groundwork to select the right technology?

  • What tangible benefits, financial and otherwise, can technology offer to taxpayers?

  • What risks does the landscape of digitisation pose, and how can you mitigate them?

  • How can tax teams get budget approval for new technology?


  • What can you expect from pre-filled VAT returns, real-time reporting, e-accounting, and fully integrated, automated tax systems?

  • How are tax authorities demanding greater access to taxpayer financial and commercial data, and what is this likely to look like in the future?

  • As this shift takes place, tax teams will need the skills and tools to manage the shift from compliance to efficient analysis and tax dispute management. How can tax leaders start planning for this now?

  • What are the key data management and technology capabilities that companies need?

  • How can teams reduce compliance costs and increase tax certainty at the same time?
