The digital future of IPT

The tax landscape is changing. Governments across the globe are looking to technology that helps to fill tax revenue gaps and also speed up tax collection. As a result, tax authorities are increasing their focus on the insurance industry. They are ensuring IPT and parafiscal taxes are collected correctly, accurately, and on time.

In light of the rise of digital tax regimes and granular reporting, IPT compliance should be a priority for insurers. Incorrect filing or reporting can lead to costly penalties and reputational damage otherwise.

Our IPT Compliance Guide for Insurers e-book provides guidance on the many elements of IPT compliance. This includes tax point, tax rates, currency, filing, submission and the importance of accurate data.

Owing to the recent changes in IPT across Europe, including Spain’s complex and detailed reporting requirements and Portugal’s Stamp Duty reporting, this guide will help you navigate the ever-changing IPT landscape.

The IPT Compliance Guide for Insurers takes an in-depth look into some of the more complex and unique IPT jurisdictions across Europe. This includes Italy, Slovakia, Portugal, France, Germany, Spain, Finland, Denmark, and the UK.
