Accounting Illustrated is back with a second installment: Technology in the Tax Department! In each episode, we bring the latest accounting and finance insight to life with hand-drawn depictions of what’s shaping the industry. In this episode, we discuss information from our recent Tech Tax white paper.
To comply with rules and regulations (like Sarbanes-Oxley Act, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act) companies are investing in tax technology. By putting everything in one place, data warehouses are of huge value to companies. Of companies with over 1,000 employees, 71-percent rely on multiple financial systems from multiple vendors. In this episode, we also address the great debate for business leaders: to host or not to host? Companies must decide between hosting data on their own local servers or working with hosting providers. We weigh the pros of each to help you decide!
