I believe EY teams can help tax functions realize the “art of the possible”, allowing them to drive efficiencies and optimize value.

How Kathy is building a better working world

“I’m helping to define the way tax provision services are provided by leading EY teams to create a process with a standardized operating plan. This allows us to have one approach to tax provision information requests, tax adjustments and outputs, all supported by a suite of standardized tools. EY teams are able to respond to the increased complexity and expectations related to income tax accounting, improve the quality of the data collected and provide transparency for EY clients.”
