Business incentives – a hot topic

On the one hand, such matters are tax-relevant and on the other hand, we constantly have to maintain a balance between a simple gesture, initiating a business transaction and "baiting". The challenge is therefore to handle business incentives in a way that is both tax-optimised and compliant. The webinar uses the example of CITAX to demonstrate a holistic process for taxing non-cash incentives in a fully integrated system landscape.

"We now have the security of being able to handle both simple and complex matters in a tax-compliant manner with a system-supported solution."

Carsten Radau, Airbus
