Indirect tax compliance: Go beyond the data

How efficiently and effectively is your organisation managing indirect tax compliance? A small, systemic error can result in a GST adjustment of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars. More importantly, getting your indirect tax compliance wrong doesn't only impact your immediate bottom line, it can do long-term damage to your reputation and impact your relationship with the tax authorities.

Managing your indirect tax compliance becomes harder if your business operates multiple entities in multiple locations (within Australia or internationally). Placing an increased responsibility on you to be aware of the rules in those jurisdictions. Are you confident that those responsible for determining your indirect tax obligations have the expertise and understanding of the tax specific regulatory requirements in those jurisdictions?
