Using digital to reduce costs whilst improving performance
Digital is a vital tool in helping agencies maximize voluntary compliance by making it easy for citizens and businesses to understand their obligations and conduct self-assessments. However, while digital solutions can provide simpler more convenient services for the customer, it is equally important to look at it from an internal, operational perspective. Tax agencies seeking to transform digitally should:
- Evaluate internal needs and benefits
- Leverage new data sources
- Redesign process to increase automation
- Align partnerships and employee roles
- Put the citizen at the core of their thinking
A world of experience
- Provide 24/7 self-serve access from any digital device
- Leverage business data lake and analytics for personalization and compliance
- Incorporate risking interventions into front-line operations
- Re-focus staff on higher-value activities, such as policy and enforcement, with increased internal skills
- Enable greater collaboration with tax professionals, banks and other third-party partners.
