In the complex global tax landscape, multinational organizations need access to real-time global data that offers clear insights into their opportunities, obligations and risks.

EY Global Tax Platform (GTP)

Built by leveraging our technology and managed services domain knowledge, GTP redefines how tax operates, utilizing Microsoft Azure cloud technology to gather and store data in a safe, secure environment. GTP combines a common data platform with the power of dashboards, reporting and advanced analytics to better support your evolving needs. By gathering data from disparate systems and sources into one seamless platform, you can transform data into insights that will support informed decisions.

GTP also integrates with leading-class tax reporting software to provide coverage for your global footprint. GTP helps you address your global tax challenges cost efficiently and allows your tax function to focus on what it does best: driving value through planning. 

What is GTP

GTP, a cloud-enabled platform, leverages secure Microsoft Azure cloud infrastructure to store your data in a data lake repository. This offers your tax team one real-time portal and provides transparent visibility through dashboards that analyze workflow and process.

Data We know your data comes from all kinds of sources, structured and unstructured. Regardless of the source, your data can be integrated into GTP.
Gather To integrate your data, we use our gather function to collect the data and enable it to be used across all geographies, functions and services. We collect data one time and reuse.
Transform Next, we transform your data to allow storage in a standard data model and to run exception-based validations to look for missing information, anomalies and inaccuracies.
Analyze Once GTP has your information, GTP supports your efforts to reduce risk and drive value for your organization. It drives analytics with Power BI visual dashboards, reports, and the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies.
Calculate Since the platform is tax software agnostic, GTP allows for scalability and flexibility. Calculations are performed with the right software for the right geography and the right service. GTP also allows real-time adjustments to workpapers and underlying data, and maintains a record of any adjustments.
Deliver GTP enables everything from simple co-sourcing to full managed service, including compliance, tax accounting, planning and controversy.
