Sales & Use Tax
For tax departments in multi-state companies, changes are coming from all directions. Many companies are undergoing reorganizations that dramatically reduce manpower and resources. Others are implementing enterprise-wide distributed technologies that move sales and use tax decisions out to the desktops of more people. And some are introducing electronic commerce capabilities like EDI, Intranets and corporate procurement cards, without considering the tax implications.
At the same time, concerned executives are looking to all departments, including tax, for strategic improvements that will boost the company’s shareholder value. Yet because of resource shortages, tax departments spend most of their time and resources on compliance issues. They have little time or budget for strategic issues that enhance shareholder value.
