Tax technology: advice on technological solutions

Wolkenkrabber

Tax technology is the application of technology in the field of taxes. This is not new, but its use has increased considerably in recent years. It can be rather difficult to determine which tools are most suited to your company. That’s why Meijburg & Co’s experts are here to help.

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) and tax engines

There are systems/technologies which have been around for some time already. The first of these is enterprise resource planning (ERP). It is important that ERP systems automatically assign the correct tax codes to transactions. For example, the correct VAT percentages, where applicable. The second are so-called tax engines. These are software which support tax processes such as VAT determination and the preparation of the corporate income tax return.

Increase in tax technology

As mentioned above, the application of tax technology has increased considerably in recent years. This is not due to technological developments alone. Companies and institutions have become far more aware of the value they add. In other words, tax technology results in greater efficiency. In addition, it makes relevant data accessible, which facilitates process automation. As a result, it also allows you to identify potential opportunities and risks quickly and in a user-friendly way.
