Tax Technology


Tax Technology

Technology options evolve inside and outside tax departments, so the role of technology continually grows more important in the tax and finance functions. Organizations that have installed an ERP or consolidation system, or are considering an implementation, often overlook the tax-related functionality now built into these systems and the impact of these systems on the tax department.

In recent years, tax software vendors have added tax functionality and increased reporting capabilities to their suites of products. Enhancements to these tax-specific systems provide a variety of methods to automate and reduce the spreadsheet-based processes that are prone to introducing risks into the business’s tax accounting, compliance and reporting.
Finally, enterprise software firms have recently introduced new solutions and functionality into the tax arena further expanding the need for organizations to understand everything that is available to them. Often overlooked, but perhaps most important, is the fact that technology is dependent upon process automation. A detailed understanding of current processes and a thoughtful design of future processes with a lens to capabilities that technology offers is critical as part of any technology transformation.
