Over the last 20 years digital transformation has changed the world almost beyond recognition. The Internet has connected people around the globe, mobile phones have opened up a new dimension of communication, and accounting systems have driven efficiency and enabled new business models.
The world of tax is changing just as rapidly. But despite the transformation brought about by developments such as BEPS, many corporate tax divisions, in Europe at least, are still structured the same as they were ten years ago. And they still heavily rely on Excel – for analytics, calculations and reporting – even though ever shorter deadlines and increasing data volumes are pushing old-fashioned spreadsheets to their limits.
This is where modern tax technology comes in:
- It can reduce risks associated with spreadsheets
- It can free up resources from administrative tasks (data collection) for analytics
- It can reduce future costs.
While most tax professionals acknowledge these benefits, many still do not completely grasp the true power and relevance of the developments behind buzzwords, such as software robotics, blockchain and machine learning.
The sixth Tax Technology Fair is designed to give you an overview of the leading solutions available to support people working in tax. It will also provide insight into the relevance to your tax division of hot topics, such as artificial intelligence and data analytics.
You will get to hear market-leading PwC professionals and IT vendor representatives with live presentations on their technologies and applications. You will also be able to compare solutions and discuss your questions and issues directly with providers in one-to-one sessions.
PwC’s Tax Technology Fair is a great opportunity to discover how the latest solutions can benefit your organisation and to share experiences with people facing the same issues as you.
