It’s no surprise that the acceleration of regulatory complexity is increasing manufacturers’ risk of being negatively impacted by sales and use tax compliance in ways that can hinder their growth.


Manufacturers Burdened with Regulatory Complexity

2017 has been the year that manufacturers began moving from design and concept for cloud technologies, IoT and analytics, to deployment in order to accelerate growth. But with those investments have come the burdens that arise from developing new business models, or pushing into new markets, not to mention outside regulatory pressure, and manufacturers are looking to hold onto the revenues they’ve begun to generate.

When asked their number one compliance challenge, 31% of CFOs indicated “Keeping up with the volume and complexity of regulations.” Why? There are a number of contributing factors that we explore in The State of Regulatory Compliance, How Businesses are Keeping Pace with Change in Global Tax Compliance and Business-to-Government Reporting.

For an overview of this 15 page eBook that discusses the shifting landscape of 2017 global and “borderless” regulatory trends, the explosion of transaction-level audits, rising compliance costs and increased risk for businesses, including the secrets to manufacturing success in this aggressive regulatory environment, check out our Infographic below and then get the full report to dig into the details you’ll need to stay one step ahead.
