Tax podcast: Technology trends for indirect tax processes

March 18, 2021

More and more companies are looking for technology to provide efficiencies around their indirect tax processes. These often-repetitive functions offer a great opportunity for companies to review both their technologies and service providers to maximize efficiency.

In this episode of Tax News & Views, we speak with Brian Little, a Deloitte Tax leader with over 20 years of experience in multistate sales/use taxation, providing tax, business consulting, and technology service. Brian leads Deloitte’s US indirect tax compliance Center of Excellence, which assists clients with preparing and filing sales and use tax and transaction tax returns.

These technologies can really help drive the efficiencies and give more insight into the data. You’re taking the compliance process away from being focused on just getting numbers on forms, and really adding value to the organization—better aligning with the expectations of the C suite.

—Brian Little

Brian also discusses the pitfalls of employing technology on a “bad process” and how leveraging “data-wrangling” tools can go beyond organizing data to providing better overall insights.
