MAKING TAX DIGITAL​

Tax authorities are going digital​​

The wave of governments making tax digital is gaining momentum and shows little sign of slowing. Authorities globally continue to look for ways to tighten loopholes, reduce tax gaps and gain greater visibility into insurers’ tax liabilities.

Taxes on insurance are fragmented. And achieving compliance can be a headache requiring specialist knowledge especially as no two jurisdictions are the same and currencies, rates, deadlines and location of risk rules may vary by country.

MAXIMISE EFFICIENCIES

Technology is driving innovative compliance solutions in response to these growing demands

Against this backdrop, insurance companies are faced with mounting pressure to protect profit margins amidst competition from new entrants and often from old and legacy systems.

As proactive initiatives like electronic returns and more granular reporting become a reality for insurers, factors like determining IPT liabilities, reporting transparency, audit trails and accuracy become increasingly critical.
