Tax technology de-mystified at this year’s event

Finance professionals looking to move towards best practice tax management processes by embracing the latest technology available, will find advice and information through a dedicated masterclass session at the forthcoming Softworld Accounting & Finance event (17 – 18 October 2001, Hall 20, NEC, Birmingham). Led by Andersen, the session has been designed for finance professionals and will detail the concepts behind the latest developments in tax technology.

“Making effective use of technology to manage corporation tax compliance is rapidly moving to the top of the agenda for most senior tax professionals” comments Conrad Young, Partner at Andersen.

“Under Corporation Tax Self-Asessment (CTSA), the Inland Revenue recognises that understanding systems and the role of technology is becoming key. Tax departments, bracing themselves for change and also seeking new and better ways of working, are also viewing technology as an essential agent for improvement.”

Young will lead the masterclass session which is entitled: ‘Managing Tax Accurately – making technology work for you’, taking place on the first day of the show. The session examines the role of technology in tax management, including the use of web-based tools to enhance interaction between professional advisors and tax departments, as well as looking at using technology through the whole corporate tax compliance process. Alongside this, Young will offer advice and information on improving systems and managing risk in the light of changing emphasis of Inland Revenue inquiries. Finally, Young will focus on the use of technology to manage workflow, track key events and meet statutory deadlines.

The session is one of a number of educational masterclasses running throughout the event, designed to help delegates examine their existing systems as well as considering new strategic frameworks, with impartial advice from leading professional services firms, such as Andersen, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers. Sessions will cover issues like e-Finance, business performance management, automating financial systems and selecting and implementing software.

As well as an educational programme, Softworld Accounting & Finance comprises an exhibition of more than one hundred leading software suppliers, including Sage, Coda, Epicor, Microsoft Great Plains, Solution 6, Agresso and Pegasus Software.

Running alongside the event this year is the Softworld HR & Payroll Annual Forum, which comprises an exhibition of 15 key players and a masterclass programme focusing on the latest issues to affect the HR and payroll functions.
