Extensive tax reform or real-time reporting requirements put even heavier demands on tax teams. In our 2021 State of the Corporate Tax Department survey, tax teams worldwide responded that tax departments with advanced technology engines considered themselves more 'sophisticated or predictive' and right-sized in terms of resources than their chaotic reactive counterparts.

How can tax departments add value to their organizations, reap the benefits of investing in streamlining and automating processes, and feel better shaped to achieve strategic goals and address the challenges they may face? What are the drivers to success or failure in adopting technologies?

In this episode, our own Bianca Kuijper talks to EY America's Shaun Lockhart, on how organizations can build business cases to fund transformation work and help reduce the overall cost of the tax functions. They provide insights into how technologies make the most positive impact, create efficiencies, save time, improve data quality, and provide meaningful insights. Turning the time saved and the high-quality data into meaningful insights sets sophisticated or predictive tax departments apart from the rest.
