Tax Technology and Automation
Fast forward to the future of the tax function through byte-sized automation
Tax teams are being challenged to work better, faster and do more with less. Leveraging technology to provide operational efficiency can be the answer, but not every tax team has a large budget or needs a full tax technology programme. Nonetheless there are still ways in which we can help. Digestible chunks of automation can deal with the significant pain points and help tax teams gain confidence in technology. The result, process improvement in incremental stages in the most painful parts of the process at low risk and cost.
Preparing tax computations
Teams spend valuable time on extracting and reformatting data, analysing P&L account codes and manually inputting data in order to be able to begin the computation. Lack of time and conflicting demands often result in assumptions having to be made, which if prudent may result in missed opportunities and an imperfect audit trail.
High staff turnover
High staff turnover in tax teams is often caused by frustration due to spending too much time on manual and repetitive tasks, and too little on tax matters. As a result, busy periods approach with teams
A challenging year-end
Year-end is a challenging time. Tax teams often have to work long hours tackling data challenges and constantly changing numbers. And in the meantime, business support is expected to carry on as normal.
Tax authorities becoming more data focused
Tax authority audits are starting to ask
How we can help
We have transformed the way we do tax compliance internally and want to use that blueprint to implement process improvements for the market. Clients have seen their process transformed. Automation, including Robotic Process Automation (RPA), is allowing a move towards the press of a button producing draft computations once you have the statutory accounts. In the interim, there are multiple options to automate the extraction and transformation of data ready for your team to begin work. Analytical capabilities have advanced significantly in tax in past years. There is now machine learning embedded in our
We provide highly skilled secondees to meet the immediate resource gap, but with a twist. Our professionals are the short-term fix but will work with you to identify process inefficiencies in the compliance process, at no extra cost. The answer may be to use Robotics for manual and repetitive tasks but there are a variety of options depending upon your particular challenges. Our objective is to provide the
We know you need to be confident in the data you provide to the authorities. We can identify repetitive data input tasks and provide you with innovative automated solutions with a full audit trail and notifications to keep your tax professionals informed of any amendments made.
