Some Good Advice from  Don't Neglect Your Tax Department

According to a recent article in, Don't Neglect Your Tax Department, more than half of companies do not have a long-term plan for improving tax technology — nor any intent to develop one. That's a mistake.  In this article by Mark Mendola, PwC, he suggests you do not just look at your tax function with an eye toward minimizing risk; look at it as a place where you can create value for your business.

In a recent PwC study of tax departments, it was found that tax personnel spend roughly 40 percent to 60 percent of their time on data-management tasks.  The results?  Much work still is done manually and in spreadsheets; there is a lack of transparency into underlying business-unit data; and little time is spent on strategic analysis and analytics.

Read this article for tips to get your tax department on track, including how technology can help streamline the business processes and reduce time spent on data-management tasks.
