A Simplified Approach to Complex Taxes

As the global consumer class continues to grow, so do the complexities of the taxes paid by global corporations, including value added tax, goods and services tax, excise tax, sales tax and use tax. We welcome the complexity. Our tax experts have seen and managed it all, working to maintain the broadest and deepest coverage of tax content in more than 14,500 tax jurisdictions in more than 175 countries. Even in complicated multi-level tax regimes–like Brazil, India, China and Russia–ONESOURCE Indirect Tax provides experience, scalability, ease of use and proven results.

That's why many of the world's most successful corporations rely on our world-class solution for managing indirect taxes, from the initial transaction through the monthly tax filings. Our determination software acts like a tax engine, allowing companies to consolidate global tax policy in one central location. All enterprise-wide applications can use a single, scalable instance of the application and still deliver business-specific tax policy across multiple business systems. On the back end, compliance software files your returns to the government agencies where you do business. And we ensure the entire indirect tax process is completed on time and accurately.

Managing Indirect Tax Compliance Around the World

ONESOURCE Indirect Tax is the ONLY truly complete solution to handle sales and use tax, VAT, and GST research, determination, and compliance. Explore how this is done all on one reliable, secure technology platform.

Does your enterprise resource planning software take care of these details? Not quite. As your business expands and sales volume grows, there are limits to what the ERP can do. You need faster, more flexible tax data in real time, backed by a company with extensive tax and accounting experience. The ONESOURCE Indirect Tax suite integrates with the most widely used ERP systems: Oracle, PeopleSoft and SAP, as well as custom integrations to your business' specific financial applications. Working together, we can navigate a constantly changing marketplace while managing your compliance and audit risk. Implementation is seamless, and the configuration can be customized to scale.

How ONESOURCE Indirect Tax Can Help Outsource Your VAT Compliance

In 2010 Affiliated Computer Services (ACS) successfully implemented ONESOURCE Indirect Tax (formerly the ABACUS VAT Compliance Solution). The goal was to help ACS automate a significant proportion of the VAT compliance and reporting cycle; to streamline its processes; and to remove manual adjustments throughout the VAT compliance process.

ONESOURCE Indirect Tax includes a full audit trail, which helps ACS guarantee to their client that it has SOX compliant VAT processes. The Financial Controllers at the client of ACS also use the ONESOURCE Indirect Tax software too.
