Vertex Exchange Conference 2014

Tuesday, 6 May 2014

Simon Godley (owner of this blog) attended the recent annual Vertex Exchange Conference at the Waldorf Hilton in London on 29th April. 

This 2-day conference is an excellent insight into recent developments from within the world of indirect tax systems, process and technology.  The organiser Vertex is a leading technology company, dedicated to providing integrated enterprise tax technology solutions to multinational clients.  Vertex is a US led business, and with a well established European operation based from London.

For each day there is a keynote speaker session, and several break-out sessions that cover many current tax technology topics, for example Managing Your Tax Data, The Role of a Tax Data Warehouse and Update on VAT Package 2015.

I attended the keynote session featuring Chris Sanger, Global Tax Policy Leader at EY.  Chris gave a highly informative and content-rich presentation, talking through the main features on the international landscape regarding tax policy set by many countries, current policy trends (post-recession) and key tax initiatives being set by the OECD, notably regarding BEPS.  An overriding message from this is the high and increasing levels of scrutiny coming from international tax authorities, the increase of tax audits, and the increasing tax data that will be demanded from tax authorities.  The onus is very clearly on organisations to have the most adequate tax data systems in place to best serve these demands, and so the growth and development of tax technology (particularly employed by global companies) is set to continue into the foreseeable future.
