Boost Tax Compliance Capabilities and Visibility with SAP S/4HANA

Is tax a top priority?

As your organization begins SAP S/4HANA migration, is tax compliance a priority? In our latest Spotlight Report, created in partnership with Americas’  SAP Users’ Group (ASUG), “Boost Tax Compliance Capabilities and Visibility with SAP S/4HANA” we make the case for including tax solutions at the very beginning of your planning process. Migrating to S/4HANA can become a big and complicated process for organizations, so it is important to plan accordingly.

Why you need to include tax solutions

In the world of tax, compliance is everything. SAP S/4HANA allows for organizations to view high-level reports and perform in-depth analysis on a line-item level. Increasing visibility is a big deal, and allows for you to identify hardware and software issues before they cause harm. Accounting for tax early in the upgrade process ensures that your organization is prepared for the challenges of modern tax compliance on an international scale. Companies operating on a multi-national scale have a great need for the enhanced visibility and reporting capabilities offered by S/4HANA.

Why tax and IT must work together

Tax process automation is one of the most helpful attributes of S/4HANA, so ensuring that it is set up correctly the first time is critical. Failing to do so is costly and time consuming, so it’s best to get it done the correct way initially. Departments working without automatic processes may find themselves creating manual workarounds, which can lead to compliance risks and painful audits. Instead, focusing on an active relationship between tax and IT allows for the communication of potential impacts due to SAP S/4HANA migration before they happen.
