How do you harness the capability of technology to manage your fiscal matters? Today, tax authorities are operating globally and have unprecedented access to company information.
How data will be collected, presented and analysed will have a significant influence on how effectively a company will journey through a tax audit in the future. Given the exchange of information between regulators, organizations must be prepared to face dialogue with tax authorities focussed at dealing with the gaps and inconsistencies that might arise as a result of the exchange.
In future, businesses will be scrutinized more by watchdog organisations than tax authorities, making reputation management a permanent fixture. All things considered, robust transparency readiness will ensure that tax data can be sourced and presented in an effective, efficient and clear manner.

During the event, Tax Technology vendors will exhibit their solutions at the technology market. This technology market will take place during the welcome drinks, the coffee break, and the beer tasting:
Do you know how to efficiently deal with multiple cross border joint tax audits at the same time? Are you certain on the outcome of such a tax audit? Do you wonder how much time and resources your company and the tax authorities will need to spend to get to a satisfactory result? Interested in understanding how Tax Authorities are working cooperatively in a new and more efficient way when operating in a cross border joint tax audit?
We are proud to announce that Dr. Thomas Eisgruber will share his thoughts and expertise on this topic.
Dr. Thomas Eisgruber, is an expert on multiple joint tax audits and advises the OECD and EU on many cross border collaboration issues.

Fiona, in her role as Director Corporate Finance & Tax at Atradius, was one of the early pioneers in automating tax accounting and reporting in Oracle's HTP.
She will be sharing her experience from the trenches, focusing on the collaboration with Finance and IT. Her story will serve as a reality check on what works well, and the pain of learning what to do differently. In light of this, Fiona will also consider the increased level of financial reporting of taxes; do tax authorities really understand the practicality of their reporting standards.
It’s a well-known fact that the information gap between taxpayer and tax authorities is rapidly narrowing; The future is global businesses talking to globalised tax authorities. With the International Compliance Assurance Programme (ICAP) showing positive results, increased joint audits, and the results of country-by-country reporting starting to develop a cogent shape, redefining the dialogue upfront brings early tax certainty, reducing hours spent on “fault finding”.
Heleen, Client Coordinator for Large Corporations at the Dutch Tax Authorities, shares what tax transparency means from a tax authority perspective, and how to look at the “results” from the different sources of tax filings.
