The intelligent tax function: data management and intelligent automation

Digital transformation has been on the Tax agenda for a while. In the wake of the global pandemic, it’s now squarely at the top of the to-do list and a fundamental prerequisite for resilient business solutions.

One crucial element of an infrastructure fit for this future is an intelligent tax function – one that thinks about data differently, embraces innovation and adopts advanced and emerging technologies that build in agility and fuel continuous transformation. Our EY Tax.Tech™ webcast series is dedicated to helping you understand what it takes to build an intelligent tax function – from tax transformation strategy to the latest tax technologies and game-changing applications.

In this next installment of our series, we will focus on the very important aspect of data management and intelligent automation. Throughout our discussion, we will be featuring demos as we cover some of the tools and solutions that are relevant to this topic. Key areas we will address include:

  • Data: the life blood of an intelligent tax function
    • Leading strategies around data management
    • Advanced and emerging technologies for data management (e.g., data warehouse, Tax Datasphere)
  • The role of intelligent automation for Tax (e.g., robotic process automation (RPA), artificial intelligence – document intelligence and predictive intelligence, data integration)
