Webinar: Are you ready for DAC6?

Date: 5 March 2020

Webinar: Reducing the burden of tax compliance

Date: 30 July 2019

On demand

Managing tax compliance is a growing burden for finance leaders. Tax authorities are starting to use the latest data analytics on financial data provided directly to them to calculate tax due, bypassing taxpayers. But many businesses continue to use dated working practices, not matching the tech investment needed to keep up.

This webinar looks at the challenges which businesses face in not refreshing their tax model from the missed opportunity to benchmark performance – and the opportunities that a reset can bring. See how your company can reduce the burden of tax compliance by reviewing working practices, adopting modern technology and possibly outsourcing production.
