Advisor Webcast: Hyperion Tax Module

(in via Tanya)

Corporate income tax is one of the largest expense lines on the group income statement.

The tax expense often represents as much as 40% of total profit. Yet, the systems in use to calculate the tax provision - a key element in the financial close process - continue to be a disconnected array of point solutions and spreadsheets that lack the transparency warranted by such material numbers.

Furthermore, the tax provision continues to be a bottleneck in the financial close and consumes time that could otherwise be spent on more valuable activities such as risk analysis and tax planning.

Join us for a webcast; given by Product Management, on

Hyperion Tax Provisioning (HTP) Module
on October 8th.

It will highlight the benefits of this module and a demo will be provided.

This is your opportunity to learn about HTP and how it can benefit you and your company during the financial close process.

As always with Advisor Webcasts - you do not need a Support ID to register - you can register directly via this  webex link as well.
