Overview

From the UK's Making Tax Digital, to SAF-T, e-invoice reporting and Chinese special fapiao invoices, tax authorities around the world are looking to technology to help them efficiently track tax due and reduce significant tax avoidance and evasion.

The number of countries implementing, or planning, the move to live transactional reporting is growing. This free, virtual summit will evaluate both the current and planned regimes. We’ll look at not only the implications for tax compliance, but the technical and implementation challenges they present for businesses.

We’ll be discussing:

  • The state of the market - what have we seen so far and why this is being accelerated
  • The current VAT digitisation regimes and what's on the horizon
  • The upcoming EU VAT Reforms, including a checklist for OSS and IOSS
  • Technology as an enabler, and why cloud is the way to go
