LL.M. Digitalization & Tax Law Overview
Digitization and transformation are much more than buzzwords these days. Even though we see current trends and like to talk about them, we often underestimate their importance and the context in which we work because we are used to believing that we are in control. How often do we see trends but don’t act fast enough? Digitization of information exchange between the tax authorities and taxpayers is a trend that never subsides.
Industry and business communities are using technology to improve tax processes and compliance with reporting obligations. The operation coordinates the company’s resources to meet these external demands. These are key factors in determining compliance obligations, service costs, and operational efficiency. In particular, they define tasks, functions, and responsibilities, thus shaping the future work of all taxpayers and all authorities.
The process is an arterial system in the supply network within and between tissues. Tax and business law form the basis for compliance with the relevant procedures. As a result, process failures can disrupt tax and customs life, as well as the entire process ecosystem.
The process determines the ability and speed with which an organization adapts to new conditions and rapidly increasing regulatory requirements.
