The sales tax return can only be filed propperly (by any external advisor), when the internal tax and accounting functions are able to record the underlying facts thoroughly.
Consequently, a certain tax knowledge is also required by staff working in the sales area or with IT systems with interfaces to the financial accounting. Continuous training and up-to-date information are crucial for the sales, purchase or law department.
In particular due to future tax audits we recommend to review these processes and to implement a process documentation with set responsibilities and control functions. With these measures implemented, it is possible to disprove any tax evasion accusation.
Beyond this, companies with transparent processes and clear responsibilities are more efficient and have a higher employee satisfaction.
