Oracle is introducing new capabilities to Oracle Fusion Cloud Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) that, when paired with Deloitte’s implementation services, can help multinational organizations as they manage upcoming Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Pillar Two tax requirements. The combination of both offerings can help finance leaders simplify complex tax processes and reporting and achieve better alignment between finance, sales, and taxation through end-to-end process automation.
The OECD’s Pillar Two requirements represent the largest change to global corporate taxation in decades. The new rules effectively create a global minimum tax rate of 15 percent and significantly impact financial processes and operating structures for large multinational organizations. With Deloitte’s Tax Technology Consulting existing Oracle implementation service team, companies can enhance tax reporting with the Pillar Two solution in Oracle Cloud EPM. This complementary pairing can help organizations collaborate across tax, finance, and other operational areas; collect and manage data from various source systems, including the general ledger, subledgers, and more; and better model future impacts of the new requirements.
“International tax compliance is incredibly complex. To efficiently address the new Pillar Two requirements, organizations need to rapidly connect and analyze increasing amounts of data,” said René van Gassen, director, Tax Technology Consulting (TTC) at Deloitte Netherlands. “Our implementation skills along with Oracle’s solutions can enable finance leaders to effectively leverage Oracle’s technology to unite tax and finance processes and efficiently manage compliance.”
The new capabilities in Oracle Cloud EPM can help finance teams streamline complex tax processes. These capabilities include:
Pillar Two data collection and management: Help tax teams automatically collect data from various business systems, including finance, HR, and sales systems, and format the data to align with Pillar Two data model requirements. This provides a strong audit trail and allows teams to spend less time collecting and harmonizing data.
Pillar Two Task Manager: Streamlines coordination and collaboration across the entire financial close process, minimizing delays to the close. The easy-to-deploy Task Manager enables users to assign and monitor tasks from a central dashboard and provides a simple step-by-step process to guide them through their Pillar Two responsibilities. This helps teams ensure that the Pillar Two process runs as seamlessly as possible.
Pillar Two tax forecasting and modeling: Provides teams with the ability to forecast and model tax scenarios in Oracle Cloud EPM. This helps predict future impacts of the new OECD requirements so organizations can better prepare for the new global minimum tax.
“As multinational organizations plan for the impact of the new Pillar Two global minimum tax regulations, technology is going to play a key role in helping enable accurate and efficient compliance,” said Hari Sankar, group vice president, Product Management at Oracle. “Pillar Two in Oracle Cloud EPM has best practices and advanced modeling capabilities built-in to enable customers to centralize controls, improve tax visibility, and adapt their tax strategies.”
“To prepare for Pillar Two reporting requirements, companies need a solution that connects and analyzes enterprise-wide data,” said Allison Matthews, Partner, Tax Technology Consulting (TTC) at Deloitte Tax LLP. “The combination of Deloitte’s implementation services and Oracle’s enterprise performance management technology is instrumental to be prepared for these global changes.”
