Every October, America’s leading tax professionals gather at the Tax Executives Institute’s Annual Conference. Over three days they attend seminars and panels, network during lunches and cocktail hours, and discuss the most pressing issues facing tax leaders in organizations today.
This year the conference focuses on examining tax transparency. Technology has played a crucial role in enabling new levels of transparency, as data becomes increasingly digital and accessible. Countries, states, and regulatory agencies are all sharing data at unprecedented levels.
At the same time, tax practitioners are requesting more transparency from regulators about increasingly complex, and at times contradictory, guidelines. As organizations increasingly have a mobile workforce traveling across jurisdictions, tax functions also need visibility into their own company’s data to do their job effectively.
On Wednesday October 19, the conference will culminate with a panel discussion between Monaeo Co-Founder and CEO Anupam Singhal and Richard Tonge, Managing Director at Grant Thornton.
“A Global Workforce: Cases and Controversies” will discuss the tax issues involved in managing a global workforce and how technology can help organizations navigate the new push towards transparency. Drawing upon case studies and client examples, attendees will leave with not only an overview of the most urgent tax challenges created by employee mobility, but also pragmatic tips for identifying and addressing exposures at their own organizations.
