Evolving Your Tax Function

A Different Approach to Tax Transformation

Tax functions are under more pressure than ever, as authorities increase their demands for detailed data. This trend will only accelerate, and in some jurisdictions, it is already happening. Within 10 years, traditional tax returns will most likely be replaced by real-time data sharing with authorities and periodic tax reclaims. Tax functions need to prepare for this and adjust how they work to focus more on real-time data insight, so they understand exactly what to share before they share it.

At the same time, budgets for improving tax operations are increasingly tight. Securing funds for the transformation, as well as proving its value, is difficult. However, Ryan has the answer. We have combined our expertise for finding additional cash flow and budget, with our market-leading transformation expertise. In short, we can help you deliver the transformation you need without having to seek budget from elsewhere in your organisation.
