Key Features

Indirect Tax Compliance

Mismanagement of your tax management processes can result in penalties and interest charges. Whichever way you look at it, the management of indirect taxes is becoming a costly overhead.

Around the globe, indirect tax requirements continue to change frequently and place an increasing burden on businesses, rather than the government, to monitor and report on their compliance responsibilities. Compliance responsibility is a major hidden cost of business operations. The 2010 study "The Impact of VAT Compliance on Business(opens in new tab)" by PricewaterhouseCoopers found that in many countries on average, it takes a company longer to comply with VAT, than to comply with corporate income tax.

Governments are regularly changing tax rates and laws in an effort to balance their budgets, placing an increasing burden on businesses in the management of the additional tax compliance. Deployed by organisations in over 110 countries, NetSuite can help you address these challenges through:

  • Transparency—reduces audit risk with an always-on audit trail, access logs for both external and tax auditors and full drill-down from summary tax forms and reports to underlying transactional data demonstrating the source of calculations
  • Automation—enables standardised workflow across all international operations with tax calculation occurring as part of standard business processes
  • Control—Validation of data entry based on in internal standards and centrally defined configurable approval processes and exception reporting provide confidence in system administration
  • Simplicity—single system architecture means no re-keying of transactional or tax data, avoiding common errors and traceability gaps found in traditional point solutions
