Tax Authorities are Going Digital

Tax administrations around the world are going digital at a rapid pace.

And they are creating new capabilities to interact with taxpayers at source, instead of relying on historical information from the tax return.

In some rare cases, they are demanding taxpayers’ data before a transaction has even occurred, or are aware of a transaction occurring within seconds of the cash register transaction. This turns the whole model of tax compliance on its head.

And when digital advances are combined with the global revolution in tax transparency, companies old and new are finding that revenue authorities are forging ahead at a pace that has the potential to outstrip their ability to keep up.
