Oracle Hyperion Tax Provision is a first-of-its-kind tax provisioning solution that integrates directly with the broader financial reporting process and Oracle HFM.

In fact, financial data is at the root of all major tax functions - tax reporting, tax planning, compliance, & audit management. Therefore, a tax provision solution that is closely aligned with the broader financial reporting process can make a powerful difference in a tax function’s ability to meet its deliverables.

To get a direct update from Oracle Product Management, please listen to this 90 minute webcast on “Tax Provision” presented by Marc Seewald, Senior Director Product Managementthat took place on November 8th 2013: Access Replay.
