What is tax technology?

FTI Consulting defines tax technology as the intersection between tax, process and technology.

Tax technology first emerged as a discipline at the beginning of the 1980s with the birth of personal computers and spreadsheets, and has expanded exponentially ever since. It is no longer a new discipline but an integral part of how professionals perform their daily tasks. Almost everything a tax department does from day to day uses tax technology.

Our core data comes from ERP and GL systems and is accessed via laptops, tablets or even smart watches. There are specialist solutions for CIT, VAT, PAYE, tax depreciation, transfer pricing, customs, MTD, SAF-T, iXBRL and so on. We also have generic tools for data manipulation, robotic process automation (RPA), machine learning (ML) and data analytics (DA), not forgetting of course databases and the tax practitioner’s ever-present friend, the spreadsheet. Tax technology is what you do and how you do it.
