Marketplaces and sellers- Navigating the cross-border tax journey
ITR and Taxamo (a Vertex Inc company)
About this talk
ITR and Vertex will host a webinar to explore the challenges facing online sellers and marketplaces after COVID-19, and to discuss ways to improve indirect tax efficiency and compliance.
Join our experts, Jordi Sol, senior manager of international tax innovation at Taxamo (a Vertex Inc company), and Anitha Chakravarthi, global head of indirect tax and tax technology at Ebay, to discuss topics including:
Sellers vs marketplaces
Not all marketplaces provide the level of support with tax compliance that sellers are looking for. In a competitive landscape, marketplaces need to adapt their offering to meet the demands of their clients. This is particularly important as tax authorities impose increasingly stringent data requirements.
Removing marketplace friction
Which issues are causing obstacles to marketplace business success? Marketplace growth, in particular, can be hindered by indirect tax complexity. Anitha and Jordi will discuss the tax challenges for marketplaces and how to tackle them.
Delivering for customers
Both marketplaces and sellers have the same ultimate goal: to deliver what the end customer wants. However, tax can get in the way of achieving this. Anitha will share how using technology and working collaboratively with sellers can help a marketplace reach its potential.
Indirect tax changes
Setting the challenges to marketplaces and sellers in the wider landscape of indirect tax changes, Anitha and Jordi will discuss the vast changes that have happened – and are still happening – in the regulatory landscape.
Increasing reporting requirements such as e-invoicing and continuous transaction controls (CTCs) are just some of the changes that indirect tax teams should be keeping an eye on.
Tax technology options
In an increasingly digital world, where tax authorities are requiring increasing access to accurate near-real-time data, tax technology in some form is the only way to manage compliance.
