Overview:

The rise of sales tax automation has made it possible for companies to turn their manual tax processes into streamlined and efficient systems. It has dramatically improved everyday tasks, like data validation, which can now be performed with increased speed, ease and accuracy.

Today, as sales tax technology moves towards the cloud, more and more tax leaders are able to go beyond just overcoming error-fraught procedures. Tax departments, which were once boxed in compliance-only function, are now taking a more strategic role in reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) and driving revenue.

Join a panel of thought leaders and distinguished professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they take a deep dive into the evolution of cloud-based sales tax solutions. Discover how these solutions can help your company cut TCO and increase return on investment (ROI).

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

  • Trends: What Are We Seeing and Why Are We Seeing a Transition to the Cloud?
  • Technology: Cloud-Based Sales Tax Technology
  • TCO: Data on These Costs/Opportunity Costs/Potential Profits that Can Be Reaped

Learning Objective:

  • Determine the how and why of implementing cloud-based sales tax technology for a reduced TCO and increased ROI
