The team:

Deloitte's Tax Technology Consulting (TTC) group helps our clients' tax departments improve their operations by developing new technology-enabled, cutting-edge methods and processes. Deloitte TTC professionals are aligned across our global network of member firms to address our clients' objectives in a seamless fashion.

TTC's Enterprise Tax Integration (ETI) professionals provide an integrated approach to process improvement that can help the tax department maximize its strategic value to the organization. Companies that have already implemented or are considering implementing an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system often overlook the tax benefits these systems can provide or underestimate the impact on the tax department. To be most effective from a tax perspective, a successful ERP implementation requires professionals who specialize in tax and can effectively address a corporate tax function's unique needs, requirements and obligations. Our ETI team, the largest of its type, offers the necessary combination of skills, methodology and practical experience to help clients avoid the pitfalls of an ERP implementation.
