Tuesday, 21 January 2020 | Optimizing SAP for Tax (10:00 am GMT)
EY has been helping businesses to implement and optimize SAP for many years and we recognize the challenges businesses face. This is also true with respect to Tax, where we have a track record in advising clients around the complexities of tax within SAP. Our recent acquisition of AgilityWorks has further increased our capability and capacity to support businesses across SAP.
SAP’s announcement that it will discontinue support of its current version (ECC 6) means that many businesses will have to start to plan for the transition to the new, and very different, platform, S/4 HANA, by 2025. This is undoubtedly a complex process, but it also unleashes a huge opportunity to review and transform business functions, including Tax. We are being asked a number of questions by businesses, such as:
While the session will focus on S/4 HANA, the principles will be equally relevant and applicable to the current instance of SAP. As such, even if S/4 HANA is not on the current IT roadmap, we are sure you will gain insights on how the current instance can be optimized, but also start to plan for the migration when it does appear on the roadmap.
To be able to discuss and answer the above questions we will have 3 or 4 different perspectives on the Webcast, including from an IT implementation partner, a tax implementation perspective and a client’s perspective. EY is delighted to be joined by Ben Lewis, Indirect Tax at Tapestry. Ben has been through a S/4HANA implementation and will share his experience and insights, providing a practical point of view of how to position tax and manage the tax risks and opportunities during the transition.
