Register now! EY Asia-Pacific Indirect Tax webcast series: Addressing indirect tax issues and challenges through COVID-19 and beyond | 2 September 2020
The global situation with the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve and businesses of all sizes are now all coping with the new norm — whether it is virtual working, disrupted with limited access to data or systems, or entirely new business ventures in light of the pandemic.
Looking beyond the pandemic, resilience is essential and performance of tax and finance functions worldwide will be critical in supporting business recovery post-COVID-19. From a macroeconomic standpoint, government stimulus being pumped into the economy must eventually be paid back. Based on the past, tax revenue and indirect and consumption taxes could potentially be one of the most likely sources. Increased tax rates and increased digital tax administration requirements will only raise the pressure on tax functions worldwide. As we look beyond the immediate impact and to recovery, the legislative pace and complexity is unlikely to subside. Control and visibility will be critical success factors.
Join EY professionals in a series of interactive webcasts focusing on specific indirect tax issues and challenges, from unlocking cash flows, managing and complying with free trade agreements to how you can build an indirect tax compliance function of the future as well as new tools to enable you to optimize global trade function.

Managing free trade agreements compliance in a post-COVID-19 world - 19 August
As countries in Asia-Pacific slowly loosen their lockdowns in order to restart the economy, customs authorities in many of these countries are gearing up to restart their customs audits and to raise revenue through collection of more customs duties. In light of increasing risks associated with compliance with free trade agreements (FTA), this session will cover the recent audit trends among Asia-Pacific customs authorities and will conduct a deep dive on managing risks when conducting FTA compliance.
Your indirect tax compliance function: Now. Next. Beyond
We will address typical issues faced but also those thrust into the limelight from COVID-19 disruptions to businesses and their workplaces. In this session, we will share how businesses are responding to these challenges, particularly through embracing technology. We will also discuss what the future might hold for indirect tax compliance functions in Asia-Pacific, given changing reporting requirements and the move to digitization by authorities, globally.
