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.

User experience and benefits

Benefits of GTP

Mitigate risk

By giving you real-time access and transparency, GTP helps mitigate risk. Our portal enables you to be proactive and know exactly which filing may be missing or late, and which steps are incomplete or in process. You can also see roadblocks, and specific bottlenecks, across a project or engagement. Finally, you have a record of changes if questions arise later. Because the portal is dual-sided, clients and EY teams see the information and source data in real time.

Control cost

With your data stored in a central data lake, you can repurpose the data for different projects, and avoid requesting or collecting data more than once. Utilizing direct data acquisition, we can further automate data gathering, reusing structured data. This supports not only compliance, but also planning while delivering additional insights. Also, GTP allows clients and the organization to easily scale up or down by using the best talent across the globe for projects, within your organization or ours. As the legislative environment becomes more complex, GTP also helps future-proof your tax department and avoid unnecessary or redundant technology maintenance and investments.

Drive value

GTP analytics generate real-time exception-based insights at your fingertips to support your planning efforts and enable you to take action immediately. Ultimately, by streamlining and automating your time-intensive tasks, GTP frees your people to address higher value-added projects such as developing plans to keep pace with new tax developments and support audit controversy.
