 Does this scenario sound familiar? Not enough time, limited capacity amongst staff; but still tasked with improving the quality of financial information in a shorter amount of time?  This is exactly what one global hospitality company’s tax department  faced when using spreadsheets to calculate their provision.

Monique Smith explains why her her progressive tax department turned to automation and how they are now creating more accurate reports for both  executives and auditors by using ONESOURCE Tax Provision.
