Investing in Tax Technology by Longview Solutions Mitigates Risk for Businesses

- Tax experts from Deloitte, Ernst & Young, PwC, and Longview Solutions all agree that implementing tax technology is a wise investment to address today's tax challenges

TORONTO, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Against the backdrop of tighter regulations, greater public scrutiny of company tax affairs, and the pressure to modernize the operations of the tax department; it is crucial that tax departments take control of their tax data through the implementation of a robust tax solution. Three of the top accounting firms, Deloitte, Ernst & Young (E&Y), and PwC, all share this opinion in a newly released video and talk about the costly financial consequences of not making the investment.

Hear what the experts from Deloitte, E&Y, PwC, and Longview have to say in the video as they discuss the challenges faced by tax departments, the risk that is inherent with a manual spreadsheet tax provisioning/reporting process, and how companies need to turn to technology to automate the tax process and mitigate risk under the tighter regulations coming down the pipe.

One of the anticipated changes includes the impact to Capital Calculations as the tax elements of the data are going to be crucial to Capital Planning and Forecasting as well as reporting. Businesses will need an advanced solution, like Longview Tax, to handle the volume of data and be able to report more frequently and with multiple versions of information so that they can respond to the business and ultimately to the market and regulator in terms of Capital Calculations.
