Event on ‘Managing Tax Risk with Enterprise Tax Technology’, May 8, 2014 – Mumbai

Amcham along with Thomson Reuters organized a programme on ‘Managing Tax Risk with Enterprise Tax Technology’ on 8th May 2014 in Mumbai.

Tax and compliance remain a key concern amongst Indian CFOs. Plagued with impending implementations of DTC, GST, enforcement of transfer pricing and uncertainty around their tax outcomes in India and coupled with ongoing litigations, all of these pose significant tax challenges for companies. To add to it, constantly changing legislations, heightened scrutiny by tax authorities and increasing public attention are combining and interacting to create a whole new context for tax risk management decisions. One of the many ways in which some of these challenges can be mitigated is through the effective use of tax technology.
