How can you optimize tax processes, improve costs, increase agility, and unlock business value through finance transformation?

Global regulatory pressures, changing tax laws and accounting standards, and increased demands from tax authorities are adding stress to already burdened tax departments. This new reality demands that tax departments provide input to transitional enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementations from start to finish. However, the “KPMG Tax Reimagined 2022: Perspectives from the C-suite” survey found that 52% of C-Suite execs said their organizations are not using tax data effectively to inform business decisions or plan around tax policy. Additionally, as companies move forward with Environmental Social Governance (ESG) reporting, reporting on global taxes paid has become a big challenge for the office of the CFO.

If CFOs promote tax planning (not just tax accounting) throughout the entire lifecycle of ERP implementations or finance transformation they can optimize tax processes, improve costs, increase agility, and unlock business value. The business case is straightforward: incorporating tax requirements into ERP systems has positive implications for the rest of the business, including cash tax savings that could be used offset or fund part of the transformation. And, with budgets flat or shrinking, CFOs should advocate for the right balance of technology and people to address these issues. So, where do they start?

Join KPMG, IBM, and a group of finance professionals/executives to discuss your challenges in this space, as well as how to optimize tax processes, improve costs, increase agility, and unlock business value through finance transformation.

Some or all of the services described herein may not be permissible for KPMG audit clients and their affiliates or related entities.
