Tax technology

Tax function of the future

Opportunities to grow

The way that your tax function uses technology is becoming increasingly important due to budgetary constraints and an increasing workload. Yet, we often see indicators that technology could be used more effectively when we work with our clients. 

Common indicators include:

  • Significant investment in software that is not properly configured to provide tax data required.
  • Considerably time spent preparing data and on compliance tasks
  • Large amounts of data which cannot be fully understood
  • Analysis prepared manually in spreadsheets
  • Uncertainty about how to gain insight from data collected

Tax technology: Move your tax function out of the box

Making effective use of technology is a journey. We help our clients to focus on small, discrete projects which are achievable and can quickly provide value. This step-by-step approach allows client teams to gradually build their technology skill and experience.

Let's get started

To help you on this journey, there are technology tools available which you can use today in your tax function. These “self-service” tools are user friendly, require limited configuration and have the power to handle huge amounts of data. 

These tools are frequently used in tax functions for the following tasks: 

  • Processing large amounts of structured or unstructured data
  • Consolidating data stored in multiple files
  • Mapping data based on various criteria
  • Reconciling data of any kind and visualising data.
