Specific skills are vital for success with tax technology. But with few guidelines and no suitable training these skills were hard to put your finger on, until now.

In the wider world, if big data underpins such claims as the ability to predict crime*1, and the Chinese to socially engineer their populace*2, it makes sense that Tax should be able to benefit.  Let’s look at some possibilities: – Enhanced risk identification and mitigation
