Tax Landscape

SAP organizations are increasingly turning to solutions such as ONESOURCE Indirect Tax – Global Next to help manage indirect tax challenges. SAPinsider’s SAP S/4HANA Finance and Central Finance: State of the Market 2023 report found that the share of respondent organizations using tax and indirect tax management solutions increased for a third year in row. Tax and indirect tax management solutions ranked as the second-most commonly adopted technology, with 28% of respondents using them.

Organizations also noted how the move to SAP S/4HANA significantly impacted their finance strategies. Companies consistently indicated that they want a cloud-native solution to maximize the capabilities that stem from this move. Thomson Reuters ONESOURCE Indirect Tax – Global Next offers native SAP best practices to help organizations maximize control, performance, and reliability.

ONESOURCE Indirect Tax – Global Next promises smoother and less expensive implementation and maintenance, saving money for organizations and freeing up IT workers for other projects.


Manual and repetitive tasks within the tax space not only eat up the time of tax teams, but they can also introduce the possibility of manual errors. This can lead to compliance issues, as well as excessive tax burdens.

Part of the appeal of ONESOURCE Indirect Tax – Global Next is that it leverages robust automation capabilities to calculate indirect taxes for global sales tax, use tax, GST, VAT, and excise tax.


One of the most significant challenges that organizations face is the constantly-shifting worldwide regulatory landscape.
