Amsterdam / Singapore, December 3, 2018 – Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint, which ranks among the leading providers of regulatory, risk and tax technology (RegTech/RiskTech), has been announced as the winner in the category “Best Solution in Tax Reporting” at the Regulation Asia Awards for Excellence 2018.
The award recognized BearingPoint’s FiTAX, a standard software for financial institutions to produce tax reports required by tax authorities. Regulation Asia’s editorial team and a panel of experts acting as judges and advisory panel went through a rigorous selection process. The judges took into account solutions that empower compliance teams to manage change in a connected and structured manner with both speed and precision, enabling professionals to confidently anticipate and act on risks, make smarter decisions and accelerate change implementation.
The risks of noncompliance with tax reporting obligations under such regimes as FATCA are too great for financial institutions to ignore. Yet, compliance can be operationally burdensome and costly without the right tools in place. With FiTAX, BearingPoint has managed to automate the reporting process and reliably provide a solution that is kept up-to-date with new regulatory requirements, removing many of the pain points for banks in their reporting obligations.
Brad Maclean, co-founder and Executive Chairman Regulation Asia
