Master your global trade, indirect tax, and transfer pricing processes and data to empower your business

Depending on your industry, organizational structure, and market you operate in, your company has to set up and monitor all types of transactions to make sure your business thrives and complies with all the regulations in place.

Products and services sold to your customers, passing through your supply chain, are impacted by many tax obligations, including:

  • Sales and purchase transactions such as: sales & use tax, VAT, and GST
  • Intracompany transactions and transfer pricing policies
  • Cross-border transactions impact on duties, free trade agreements and more

Given the expertise needed to handle these very specific parts of your business and obligations, the tax, trade, and supply chain departments are often organized in silos, with separate people, processes, and supporting systems. Coordinating the information flow across these multiple groups and systems to get the answers you need is no easy task. 

Without clear data, you may feel as though you’re running after your business, rather than running it efficiently.

Moreover, there is a massive amount of change in today’s business landscape — market and political changes, new rules and regulations, company structural changes, and more. All these external or internal critical business events raise questions and potential options that need to be thoroughly analyzed before any important decision is made. 

Companies want a global visibility with a clear window into their business. They want their tax and trade teams to share with them, in a timely manner, accurate and granular information to make the right business decisions. They want the answer to the question: where do we go next?

Moving your tax and trade teams from Tactical to Strategic

Tactical: Managing your tax and trade processes and compliance

Each department – global trade, indirect tax, and transfer pricing – has its own compliance obligations to keep up with, its own regulation changes to monitor, and its own reports to compile. If not outsourced, staff often spends time gathering data from multiple sources and doing manual work to prepare compliance documentation.  Doing so prevents your teams from focusing on high-value analysis and planning for your business.

In a recent survey of senior in-house decision-makers within corporate tax departments (published by Thomson Reuters / Acritas), over half of the respondents rated their departments as operating in Chaotic & Reactive modes of working, rather than Optimized & Predictive

 

Strategic: Leveraging information to helping your business making the right critical decisions

C-Levels need accurate information faster than ever before to react and grow their businesses. Bringing all these processes and their relevant data together can give you a real window into your business to answer questions such as:

  • What is the impact of new regulatory changes on the tax that we are charging?
  • What happens if we store our inventory in country A instead of country B?
  • What happens if we acquire a new company? Or enter a new market?
  • How do I grow my company in a risk controlled and tax efficient way?

By embracing a tax transformational outlook, your business can:

  • Automate non value-added tasks (data gathering, research…) to spend more time analyzing and planning.
  • Focus your partners’ time on your strategy and new regulations or business models impacts.
  • Provide leadership with the big picture of your business, not just as it is today but as it could be tomorrow.

It allows your company to move from operating at a tactical level…to a strategic one.
