With a global pandemic and a constantly evolving tax landscape, tax departments are facing multiple demands which is collectively putting a strain on resources. 
Join our webinar as our panel of experts will provide deep insights into the state of the corporate tax department across Australia, New Zealand and South-East Asia markets.
Areas of discussion:

Building a business case for tax technology investment: 50% of corporate tax departments globally feel under-resourced, according to the 2021 State of Corporate Tax Department Report. Whilst technology has been cited as the most common strategy to address this issue, it can often be challenging to prove the business case for this investment. Our panel will provide insight into how tax technology has transformed their tax departments and based on their learnings, provide tips on how you can build the business case.   

Proving ROI before, during and after the implementation phase: With tighter budgets coming into 2021, the report suggests that some departments struggle to quantify the return on investment. It’s also not just the cost of the technology itself, resources need to be secured and made available for training and implementation as well. Our experts will highlight key metrics, and how to measure this during and post project completion. 

Putting it altogether: Utilising benchmarks to measure the success of a tax department is paramount, as they provide guidance, context and areas of improvement. Our experts will discuss the use of three key performance metrics: effectiveness, efficiency and engagement which were cited as the most important metrics by our survey respondents.
