From burden to business enabler
Tax compliance is a strategic business issue that must evolve with the shift to digital, the increase in regulatory obligations and the need for operational resilience.
It is not just a cost of doing business. Each compliance data point tells a story, and our approach proactively turns that data into meaningful insights that help to guide decision making. Driven by data and technology, we are transforming compliance into a forward looking, strategic activity that enables organisations to gain significant competitive advantage.
Against a backdrop of uncertainty and disruption, our approach is built to withstand change, is globally consistent and provides clients with peace of mind.
ZEISS has been a client of PwC Germany’s tax and legal services team since 2013. In September 2020, PwC started using the firm’s newly-launched Engagement Center (EC) compliance platform to help ZEISS simplify its global compliance obligations. With multiple business units in different countries, the company needed a clearer line of sight into local compliance issues in a rapidly evolving global regulatory landscape. In 2016, AT engaged PwC to develop its digital and customer strategy in order to transform the company from an engineering business into a world-class customer-centric organisation. Over the past five years, PwC has helped AT roll out ‘Customer Central’, an ongoing programme with a core objective to ‘build better, customer-centric digital solutions faster’.
