Technology tools 

Technology can help improve tax processes and provide greater visibility into critical business and tax issues. Several market-leading technologies will be available for you to experience while at the Summit. Depending on the application, a tool can help meet one or more critical business or tax need. Below is a list of technologies that will be on display during the Summit, broken down by the business/tax need they can help address.

Compliance Management - technology tools that can help meet your compliance needs include:


Indirect Tax Data Analytics

When preparing VAT returns and managing indirect tax compliance, the integrity of underlying transactional data is critical. At a time of rising complexity and dynamic change across the Asia-Pacific region, confidence over VAT data is essential. KPMG’s Indirect Tax Practice’s service for analyzing the data integrity employs sophisticated interrogation and analytic tools and a three-stage “scan, detect and prevent” approach to identify potential risks and opportunities.

KPMG LINK 360 (formerly Global Tax Management System (GTMS)

KPMG LINK 360 is a web-based application that enables you to securely manage and control key tax and other compliance processes. At its core is a sophisticated database that allows you to share information between teams engaged in meeting compliance obligations, wherever they are in the world. With KPMG LINK 360, you can collect documents and data locally about compliance status and other key information such as total tax contribution, material risks and exposures, or profits and losses. A flexible reporting tool allows you to design bespoke reports that present an aggregated view, with filtering and drill-down, and to generate trend and change analyses illustrated with graphs. KPMG LINK 360 provides unprecedented levels of visibility and flexibility to global businesses for managing their compliance obligations.

TP Cube

TP Cube is a customizable technology tool that automates the expense recharge process. The tool employs a cost plus/minus allocation methodology to calculate cost recharges and generate invoices for group entities based on specific allocation metrics. TP Cube can model the impact that any changes in transfer pricing methodology could have on recharges globally. Overall, TP Cube can help you establish a transparent, consistent process for assuring key stakeholders that the company’s transfer pricing policies and procedures are being managed effectively.

Transfer Pricing Data Manager (TPDM)

TPDM offers efficient, coordinated and consistent transfer pricing documentation through a structured preparation of transfer pricing reports. The tool offers centralized status monitoring and documentation review as well as simultaneous access by multiple users.

 


Cash Flow Management – technology tools that can help better manage cash flow include:


ETR/Cash Tax Model

On the basis of forecasts, KPMG’s ETR/Cash Tax Model tool simulates transactions and helps to optimize a structure for the relevant forecast period, calculating realistic and reliable estimates of the cash tax impact. You can easily amend the model to handle calculations for any business transaction like acquisitions, internal reorganizations and refinancing scenarios. The tool can help you identify cash flow shortages, dividend blocks and related challenges. You also can use the tool to identify tax improvements due to changes in your organization’s supply chain management. Looking ahead, KPMG’s Tax Modeling Group is working on expanding the scope of the ETR/Cash Tax Model to include specific direct and indirect tax calculations of various countries.
