Advance the tax function with S/4 HANA

Turn your S/4 HANA conversion challenge into an opportunity for tax.


Helping improve tax function operations with an SAP S/4 HANA upgrade


Companies must transition to S/4 HANA by 2030, when legacy SAP ERP platforms will no longer be supported.

SAP S/4 HANA is SAP’s next-generation ERP platform which incorporates a variety of new features and functionalities, including artificial intelligence, data analytics, cloud architecture, and a digital user interface. It allows organizations to transform their core systems, streamline processes, and simplify their data model and underlying architecture.

Key areas of Tax for consideration

The entire tax department lifecycle will be affected by an organization’s migration to S/4Hana, including Direct tax, Indirect tax, Transfer Pricing and Trade & Customs.

Whether you’re transitioning to S/4 HANA immediately or over the next several years, KPMG’s ERP Tax Sensitization Services can help bridge the gap between Tax and IT departments before, during, and after and implementation or upgrade.  Identifying areas where Tax can bring value.
