According to a recent survey by LPMG LLP's Tax Management Solutions practice, the number one factor of tax departments adopting technological innovations is the associated benefits it extends to companies in the forms of lower effective tax rate (ETR) and elevated bottom-line performance. The survey also discovered that a one percent increase in ETR was followed by a 14 percent increase in spending on tax planning. This seems to indicate that high-ETR companies are relying on technology and the use of strategic tax planning to obtain lower ETRs.
