The New Tax Professional
The world of the tax professional is changing fast. Digitalisation and automation lead to major changes in the tax professional’s daily business. In fact, many of his current workflows will be automated in the near future, which raises the question: how can the role of the tax professional stay relevant in the future? Most tax professionals believe that technology will have a major impact on their field of business in the future. However, only a small number of these professionals actually have working knowledge of these tax technologies, which is obviously a big concern for the future. This booklet explains the challenges the new tax professional faces, new learning models for knowledge workers and the core competencies the new tax professional should possess in order to survive. Jobs in the future landscape of tax are discussed, and what the impact will be for in-house tax professionals, tax authorities and tax consultants. This booklet is a teaser for a complete course on Tax Technology prepared by e-Bright. The e-Bright Tax Technology course consists of 10 chapters and basically covers everything that the new tax professional should know in order to stay relevant for his clients. Every chapter ends with 10 multiple choice questions to test the obtained knowledge.
