See beyond today's tax operating model

Operations Transformation for Tax

Growing complexity in global tax regulations, the relentless wave of technological change, and a shortage of tax talent are colliding to create greater potential risk and cost exposures for your organization. Deloitte Tax LLP (Deloitte Tax) can help you transform your tax operating model to address tax management challenges and position your team—and your business—for the future.

Redefine your tax operating model

Like many leaders, you may be realizing that your current tax operating model isn't equipped to handle the mounting pressures of today's tax reality.

More traditional models—oftentimes powered by a mix of in-house staff, multiple external vendors, and point technology solutions—can be expensive, inefficient, and unable to keep pace with the speed of change globally. How can you find ways to work smarter, faster, and cheaper?

A growing need for combined tax technical and technology skill sets, along with increasing complexity in tax law, can make it harder to assemble a team that successfully addresses your tax obligations, much less creates value for your business. How can you more effectively access the right people to meet your needs?

The sheer amount of data coming through tax departments can be daunting. Knowing how to adapt your organization's tax operating model to extract meaningful insights from the data and mitigate the potential for risk exposure can be difficult. How can you predict and plan accordingly?

Specialized approaches to tax operating model transformation

Deloitte Tax can help you analyze your current tax department capabilities across talent, technology, data, processes, and risk management.

  • What functions should your tax team manage largely in-house (insourcing)?
  • What should you outsource with the help of a third-party?
  • How can you use technology to potentially improve tax management productivity and lower costs?
  • How might your talent models need to evolve?

Transformation is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. Together we’ll explore options for your future tax operating model and identify opportunities for creating potential efficiency improvements, cost savings, resource reallocations, and increased business value.

Leveraging outsourcing to get the basics done so you can focus on increasing strategic impact
With the extraordinary volume of regulatory changes and increasing complexity in tax law, tax departments are spending an inordinate amount of time on tax compliance and financial reporting. This leaves them little to no time for planning or identifying and managing risk. Adding to the challenge, many organizations are finding it difficult to hire and retain the talent and skills they need. Outsourcing can help liberate tax department resources from essential, but low-value activities, and shift focus to strategy, planning, and other high-value tasks.
