Indirect Tax Risk Insights

Want to get even more out of SAP’s Indirect Tax capabilities?

Get even more transparency on Indirect Tax (ITX) risks using SAP's capabilities - especially with focus on your SAP S/4HANA transformation

SAP S/4HANA has immensely powerful analytics functionalities that can help you manage ITX and SAP related parameters much more easily.
Our Indirect Tax Risk Insights dashboard is the smart short-cut to these capabilities. Empowering you to quickly get an overview of missing information or critical parameter combinations, the dashboard is summed up for your ITX compliance, but especially for your SAP S/4HANA tax journey, e.g. if is there SAP master data that should be updated before starting the migration.
  • The ITX Risk Insights analyses your business transactions based on the most relevant ITX KPIs and SAP relevant parameters
  • The results will be risk-based classified and shown in a world map overview for all in-scope countries, specified to your company’s business transactions
  • The dashboard helps you to easily identify critical transactions and SAP parameters, and to start any plausibility checks and remediation actions
  • All results can be broken down to transaction level to facilitate immediate action
  • The data analysis will be done in your SAP system (S/4HANA or BW) and the visualisation in SAP Analytics Cloud (and optional in the Digital Boardroom)
