The Value of Adding a Tax Engine to Your SAP S/4HANA Migration

Discover why IT needs to collaborate with their tax team.

Future Ready: Tax Optimization in the SAP Ecosystem

Webcast Summary

With the migration from SAP ECC to SAP S/4HANA, thousands of companies will need to work on their ERP design plans. But, were you aware that your new ERP system does not come with an out-of-the box, fully automated, end-to-end VAT process—which is essential for your tax department?

The move to SAP S/4HANA brings an opportunity for IT and the tax department to work together as this is a good momentum for the tax department to optimise the company’s VAT determination technology, whilst IT can accomplish standardisation and eliminate numerous tax customisations across their ERP instances. 

Download our webinar to learn why you should consider a tax engine and why the vast majority of companies have made this decision. You will hear about:

  • How to eliminate manual research of rates, rules, and ERP upgrades to increase accuracy and streamline VAT processes
  • How you can centralise VAT management across multiple ERPs and multiple applications to achieve consistent tax determination and reduce TCO
  • How you can use a tax engine to future proof your ERP environment
