CFO Tech Outlook | Monday, July 25, 2022

The tax industry today operates within an extremely complex ecosystem where disparities often arise due to inconsistencies at the state, national, regional, and global levels.

FREMONT, CA: Taxation has always been impacted by business and regulatory changes, but recently the pace has accelerated exponentially. Rapidly changing business dynamics due to the implementation of innovative technological applications across every industry have led the taxation sector to think beyond conventional methods of tax policies and processes. Professional taxpayers leverage technology to calculate, pay, and file taxes seamlessly. Economies around the world are experiencing enormous changes as a result of macro tax trends and implications.

Macro tax trends and implications: Taxpayers have become highly informed due to the technology and internet. Taxpayers now want complete transparency and information regarding the tax-paying policies and tax deduction methods so that they can predict and plan their taxation schedules and manage obligations. The global economy demands better management of taxation complexities and provides insights into individual tax management.

Disruptive transformation to the taxation industry: The global tax regulations involve international e-commerce transactions, bitcoins, remote work, and the gig economy. Recent years have seen tremendous growth in these sectors. Adoption of technology can improve management and get control over global taxation regulations. Large digitized infrastructure is required to implement technologies such as fintech and tax solutions enabled with AI, ML, and data analytics. These high-end technological tools will be embedded in the present fintech solutions, allowing financial service providers better solutions for their clients.

The age of tax tech: The taxation industry has yet to adopt digitization completely. Because several departments that believe and work in conventional methods are uncomfortable accepting new technological applications. Governments across all nations will have to be proactive in implementing these technological tax tech solutions like digitization of financial tools, fully automated processes using machine learning, and adopting cloud-based storage. Additionally, nations need to educate and train their employees to learn these new technologies skillfully to use them seamlessly. Global economic trends show that the fintech trend is impacting innovations in tax tech. Digitization of the taxation sector will bring tax into the limelight of the financial revolution.
