As the global business landscape undergoes a seismic shift towards digitisation and reporting in real-time, e-invoicing is rapidly becoming the norm rather than the exception. The urgency to align with ever-evolving regulatory standards, including implications of the new EU e-Invoicing Directive and VAT in the Digital Age reforms (that also affect UK accountants and finance professionals), is pressing organisations to change faster than ever.
Failing to seize this transformational momentum can leave businesses grappling with inefficiencies, cost-saving oversights, and regulatory compliance pitfalls.

By navigating this complex mesh of new technologies, evolving standards, and a changing workforce structures, senior finance and accounting professionals can achieve several benefits. These include streamlined operations, significant cost reduction, improved accuracy, and gaining a competitive market edge.
Thomson Reuters, in partnership with a leading representative from the Big Four, invites you to a virtual roundtable discussion. This event offers an exclusive opportunity for senior finance and tax professionals to exchange insights, knowledge, and best practices to navigate the e-invoicing revolution, pioneering yet another stride forward in the digital era.
