Business value

The digitalization of tax and the steady stream of indirect tax regulations that global businesses encounter, such as VAT and GST, have further complicated existing processes by introducing new industry and compliance risks that challenge leaders in every global enterprise.

Tax Calculation allows you to improve compliance with associated local regulations. The new, configurable microservice (preview) enhances the tax determination and calculation capabilities in Dynamics 365 Finance and Dynamics 365 Supply Chain Management. Tax Calculation is fully integrated out of the box, and enables you to:

  • Automate and standardize tax determinations and calculations across countries or regions.
  • Use a configurable tax determination matrix and flexible calculation designer to configure and execute complex tax determination rules and calculations by using formulae and conditions.
  • Simplify compliance maintenance for local tax regulations.
