Why should tax have a seat at the table in an ERP transformation?
Businesses are facing increasing demands from tax authorities, with more reporting required and more of it in real time. At the same time many companies will be soon upgrading their ERP systems as SAP and Oracle will cease to support older versions in the near future.
This gives businesses a unique opportunity to set up their future ERP in a tax and statutory compliant way. However, involving your tax colleagues in the conversation shouldn’t be considered as an add-on at the end of the ERP planning journey. Involve them right from the start to get a full understanding of what is required, and you’ll reap even greater benefits from your new ERP system.
