How to Manage Indirect Tax Compliance and Mitigate Risk in the P2P Process

A woman and a man in business attire sit at a table in a well-lit room, discussing data and tax compliance insights from the laptop that rests in front of the woman.

Managing indirect tax compliance is a complicated exercise. And as procurement activities and indirect tax processes intersect, the risks of getting tax calculations wrong can be high and the consequences costly. At the time an invoice reaches accounts payable, if the vendor’s tax amount is not validated, then there can be an over or underpayment of tax. When companies pay potentially thousands of invoices in a year, these errors can have a significant impact on their bottom line. Improper calculation of indirect tax means the tax department could spend valuable time correcting errors or dealing with audit penalties.

In this on-demand webcast, presenter Larry Mellon, Tax Director in the Vertex Chief Tax Office, discusses the importance of efficient and accurate indirect tax management in the procure-to-pay (P2P) process and examines how tax automation technology can be integrated into procurement systems to manage compliance, mitigate risk, and reduce manual effort.

Four people in business-casual attire are an office space, which has big sunny windows. The woman seated closest to the camera is referencing and reaching for a computer in front of her. She is smiling with the three people, slightly out of focus behind her, who are all taking a look at the work in front of her.
