Tax & Trade x SAP Event 

Belgium Tax Dbriefs

The digitalization of Tax & Trade is becoming the norm, this is why Tax & Trade x SAP requirements interact now more than ever before.

29 June 2022 | 14:00 - 17:30 | Virtually and at Deloitte Gateway, Brussels Airport, Belgium

Automation is the new standard and is expected to play an important role in our future to which all tax and trade departments have to adapt. This is the reason why we’re organizing this exclusive event for you.

From creation to implementation to the provision of insights, we’re going to share with you what we learned in the last 3 years.

We give you access to an exclusively created Tax & Trade x SAP community with whom you can interact and learn about their cases, their challenges and together we use this platform to share experiences on how to unlock benefits such as mitigating risks, increasing process efficiencies and generating potential cash savings.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you in this hybrid session and further extending the Tax & Trade x SAP community.

Please be mindful that as regards physical attendance, we have limited space available and that a “first come, first served” principle will apply.

Please consider you are only able to participate in one of the four available sessions per breakout room. In case you would like to invite a colleague or friend to participate in any of the other topics and discuss the outcome and key insights later on together, we warmly welcome you to share this invite to the designated person or your network and motivate them to join the preferred session(s) in parallel.
