Tax is increasingly becoming a strategic issue for companies.
Organisations need to bridge the gap between their current resources and the tax landscape of tomorrow. Our experts provide advice and accompany you as you prepare your tax affairs for the future.
At present, many tax departments are not equipped to face tomorrow’s challenges. They need to adapt to the new environment to keep pace with the changes ahead.
The Tax Technology team supports you to optimise your tax strategy and processes, to ensure that the tax department can make a strategic contribution to reaching your company’s goals in the future.
Innovation does not only begin with technology, but also with people who take action. On the European level, PwC has developed the Data Analytics Academy. We teach you how to use new technologies within your business and optimise your processes using various tools. You learn what you need to consider when implementing data analysis, visualisation, AI, and automation within your company to achieve long-term increases in efficiency.

Are you unsure about which technology solution you should introduce or develop? In this case, we can help you with our rapid proof of concept (PoC) solutions. Within a short time, we evaluate the feasibility of solutions (rapid prototyping) and make recommendations about which solutions (internal or external) are profitable or viable.
We will develop initial prototypes, which are tailored to your problems, and support you to implement these in your company’s systems.
Are you currently restructuring your tax department? Are you considering employing new staff or expanding skill sets? We would be glad to hold a joint discussion to evaluate which digital tax strategy would be best suited to your company and which individuals with which skills are able to help you.
In our innovation workshops, we provide an overview of digital ways of thinking and working within tax departments. We provide information on the latest technologies and how they can be used, and sketch specific problems and solutions for your company.
PwC’s digital audit experts support you to extract and prepare the correct data and make it available in the required format. Why wait until the tax auditors are knocking at the door? We would be glad to examine your data using the latest methods and ensure that there will be no surprises if a tax audit is announced.
We support you to design your tax processes in an optimal way using automated tools including robotics. The use of such tools can improve your existing processes and increase efficiency.
Do you ever ask what story your tax or accounting data tells? Would you like to have relevant information quickly and easily accessible?
We prepare your data for further processing and, working together with you, we determine which information and checks you would like to have available at all times. We set up personalised dashboards which provide an instant overview of the most important information. This gives you greater control over your data and leads to time savings when you evaluate your reports.
Which tax treatment a system recommends depends on the relevant settings. Due to complex and constantly changing legislation and the need to have flexible business models and processes, it is easy to lose track of the available data and thus difficult to stay up to date. Errors in system settings can remain undetected for years and can lead to large corrective payments. The tax authorities are aware of this problem and are increasingly focusing on system analyses and IT-based checks.
Are you planning to acquire a new software tool for your company/group? Do you feel unsure about which solution to choose? Have you already chosen a solution, but you haven’t got it up and running? Our experts can provide advice and practical support and can help you choose a solution that meets your needs. We would also be glad to help you during implementation.
Would you like to use less paper in your tax or accounting department? Are you considering no longer printing out invoices and archiving them digitally? Are you no longer sure which documents can be electronically archived? We can help. We would be glad to hold joint workshops to identify the existing documents and processes, and to jointly evaluate which documents you can store electronically.
We provide support in the standardisation of your tax-relevant processes and offer you everything you need to successfully implement an internal control system in your tax department.
We provide information about the range of tax reporting options and work together with you to design user-friendly, intuitive, and tailored solutions for your company.
