Abstract Text This report is a preliminary research that could provide guidance to companies on the possible modernization for the different tasks using data of their corporate tax function. Firstly, the corporate tax function is defined, then the technologies are presented and then crossed to identify their potential benefits and drawbacks on the basis of literature search and interviews with professionals. Solutions are proposed that bring improvements such as efficiency or minimization of problems. Finally, the paper highlights the evolutive role of the corporate tax function towards the digitalization of its tasks. ERP and RPA, when combined, appear ideal to increase the overall efficiency of tax treatment and to avoid new problems. Moreover, this combination is easy to implement.
