Digital Tax Symposium

EY India Digital Tax Symposium

An innovative format to “experience” and “decipher” what digital tax means for you

EY India’s first-ever Digital Tax Symposium took place on Wednesday, 13 December 2017 at the Taj Lands End, Mumbai.

In present times, the tax function is evolving faster than ever to keep pace with the new digital world, both in India and globally. Rapid digital expansion has led to an increase in new, and potentially unexpected compliance and regulatory obligations for organizations.

With this theme of digital evolution in mind, the Digital Tax Symposium delivered a unique experience to give an insight on the practical understanding of the applications of technology in tax versus a standard presentation approach, with a combination of touch and motion controlled technology using multitaction tables and walls.

The audience were walked through the Digital Experience zone, – a centrally placed interactive kiosk which displayed EY tax technology solutions through interactive technology. Another first of its kind, was the idea of going ‘paper-less’: the kiosk allowed for the delegates to get an interactive hands-on rundown of the EY Digital Tax Solutions and they could mail the required collateral soft copies to themselves, real time.

Some of the emerging questions which were answered include, what are tax administrators doing in India and globally on the technology front? How is your organization impacted? What are the opportunities for automating tax-related processes in your organization? Is your tax function confident to respond to the issues arising in an increasingly complex digital economy?
