4th Group Indirect Tax Exchange October 17-18, 2011 Amsterdam
Thought Leader Global is conducting its 4th Group Indirect Tax Exchange on October 17-18, 2011 at Amsterdam, to be sponsored by Vertex.
“The recent VAT Package and upcoming Invoicing directives have led to the goal for multinationals to transform their billing, purchasing, customs and VAT compliance processes,” Thought Leader said.
“Standardisation, automation and efficiency are the new objectives. Companies are begining to construct tax control frameworks in order to demonstrate quality self-assessments to tax authorities, and indirect tax plays a central role in this.
“Centralisation and technology trends are also driving companies towards adopting VAT compliance programmes and e-customs. Utilise this event to benchmark how leading multinationals are implementing new indirect tax initiatives in their operations. Hear their perspectives on VAT risk, compliance and VAT automation, in an informal interactive environment.
