Digital acceleration in tax

The next five years will be a period of significant digital progress for businesses, tax administrations and the tax and legal professions generally. It is hard to predict what developments will emerge, but we can look to current and recent trends to guide our predictions for the future digital landscape and the ways in which it will impact us. In this session, we will consider what we believe the defining technology trends will be for the tax and legal profession.
