How is data analytics disrupting the management of GST?

The Australian Taxation Office’s (ATO’s) are increasingly focusing on the integrity of business systems and robust internal controls to gain confidence over an organisations end-to-end GST process. This puts the onus on organisations to ensure that master data management, business system configurations and internal processes are fit for purpose.

KPMG’s GST Data Analytics is designed to make this simple.

Questions to ask about your GST data:

  • Is your focus on getting the BAS filed on time rather than ensuring that each label is supported with accurate source data?
  • Are system master data or configuration issues creating a hidden liability?
  • Are manual GST coding process errors masking a refund?
  • Can you reduce your risk of a data driven ATO audit by demonstrating the integrity of your system?

What insights can GST Data Analytics provide?

  • ABN validity: Verify ABN vendor master data against the Australian Business Register.
  • Internal controls: Analyse processes around tracking GST group structures including the addition and removal of members and general controls over business processes that impact GST.
  • Material master data: Assist in identifying materials and products that have incorrect GST classification.
