An introduction to Tax Engines 

Improve the indirect tax accuracy and the overall tax department agility

Welcome to a breakfast seminar hosted by Deloitte and Vertex, to learn about the value of using a tax engine. What is it and how can they improve your tax department?

Since the introduction of VAT in Sweden, exactly 50 years ago, businesses have made VAT decisions manually increasing risk and strain on in-house resources. Now the future looks brighter and more automated!

During the session you will learn what they can do for your business and indirect tax processes. We will cover:

  • What Tax Engines are.
  • The main drivers behind why businesses use them.
  • The value they can add to your business when managing indirect tax in an international environment.

We will also show a demonstration of how a tax engine works when determining VAT on every invoice transaction in real-time and why they are more robust than using a native ERP system.
