Sovos Expert to Speak on Tax Compliance in S/4HANA at SAPPHIRE

April 30, 2019

Pawel Smolarkiewicz, chief product office at Sovos, will speak on the digital transformation of tax and its effect on SAP S/4HANA at next week’s SAPPHIRE conference in Orlando.  

As countries make continuous tax compliance the new normal, businesses are finding that they have to respond by putting tax compliance functionality at the core of their financial systems. The digitization of tax by global governments is the “other” digital transformation, and mishandling it could completely derail S/4HANA migration.

Pawel will speak on how governments are using data-driven strategies to close tax gaps and how companies can prepare for the new realities of tax by prioritizing tax compliance in moves to Central Finance and ultimately S/4HANA.

Join Pawel on Wednesday, May 8, at 4 pm.
