Companies can face a number of burdens and risks when trying to comply with direct-tax requirements. If not properly managed, these requirements can result in harmful tax liabilities, especially for a decentralized organization that operates in different jurisdictions.

However, there are ways businesses can better enable their tax functions to address the challenges of direct- tax compliance.

Companies that can leverage the power of automation, data and analytics, and rules-based tax engines will be better able to manage and respond to common direct- tax challenges. These include dealing with calculating direct tax for a decentralized tax organization, responding to uncertain tax positions by jurisdiction in real-time, automating manual procedures for data management, and instituting more centralized controls and data hygiene. KPMG’s direct-tax services and global experience joined with Thomson Reuters ONESOURCE Direct Tax Suite provide a leading combination to help companies more effectively address their direct-tax obligations, operations, and reporting. Working with ONESOURCE, KPMG can help companies more effectively address their direct-tax reporting and operations, including global tax compliance requirements, and data and analytics for improved outcomes.
