New planning and modeling tool to support growing demands on tax environment

Finext and The Resource develop app on Anaplan for corporate tax reporting.

Voorburg, September 22, 2015 – Corporate tax reporting faces a number of trends. The call for more transparency, the growth of sustainability reporting and upcoming legislation such as country-by-country reporting are all demanding detailed tax information. Specialists from Finext and The Resource used Anaplan’s cloud-based planning and modeling platform to build a specific application for corporate tax reporting. Anaplan brings together an unrivaled planning and modeling engine, collaboration in the cloud, and a simple interface for business users. Anaplan customers can choose from over 100 pre-built planning apps from the Anaplan App Hub, or easily build their own apps. The new tax reporting app is available on the Anaplan App Hub and enables companies to provide tax information in an effective and user-friendly way.

The field of corporate tax reporting is changing. “There are a number of changes occurring at the same time,” says Patrick van Gerven, The Resource. “First of all, there will be new legislation such as country-by-country reporting for multinationals by January 1st 2016. Secondly, there is a growing public awareness regarding taxes combined with an increase in sustainability reporting. This leads to more transparency about tax principles, tax data and the taxes paid per country.” To answer these trends, organizations need a detailed, actual and accurate insight in the tax position per entity and per country.

Effective tax process
Tax reporting technology is becoming increasingly important. “The new application enables a smooth and effective tax process,” says Jethro van der Veer, Finext. “Also, integrating the tax application with the existing Performance Management applications built on Anaplan helps to gather reliable tax data throughout the organization.”

Cloud-based
The newly developed tax application is built on Anaplan’s cloud-based platform, providing a simple interface accessible anytime, anywhere. “This ensures that tax managers have access to the same up-to-date figures as finance,” says Marco van Oosterhout, Managing Director Anaplan Benelux. “It is user-friendly and flexible, making it easy to adapt the application to legal or organizational changes.”
