CSC Unveils Comprehensive Global Tax Compliance Offering

Stocks in this article: CSC

Today at Cordys’ Cordial 2012 conference, CSC (NYSE: CSC) unveiled software and consulting services to help financial institutions comply with the U.S. Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and other global tax regulations. At the conference for Cordys clients and partners, CSC demonstrated CSC GATE (Global Administration of Tax Enquiries), which uses the Cordys Business Operations Platform to enable its scalable, enterprise tax compliance framework. CSC GATE, initially offered in Europe, provides a cost-effective way to meet FATCA regulations and to rapidly adapt to future tax requirements.

FATCA requires financial institutions around the world to disclose tax-relevant information about their U.S. account-holders and those with U.S. income, to ensure those who are liable to pay taxes in the United States are paying what they owe. Many other governments see the opportunity for additional tax revenue and will likely follow suit for their own nationals, wherever they may reside or wherever they may keep their money and investments.

“Regulatory uncertainty and delays are not stopping financial institutions from investing in regulatory preparedness,” according to CEB TowerGroup senior research director Dushyant Shahrawat. “Firms are using regulatory reform as a competitive advantage to differentiate themselves from their competitors.”

The CSC GATE rule- and process-driven software framework bridges silos within the clients’ legacy estate to categorize affected customer accounts, both existing and new, and calculate the appropriate potential tax withholding. It also generates reporting for governmental, internal and customer stakeholders and is pre-populated with the rules for FATCA compliance. Additional countries’ reciprocal tax information exchange agreements can be added as required. CSC GATE is offered in combination with a consulting engagement to determine the best roll-out plan and target operating model.

“With our robust Platform as a Service, CSC GATE can easily operate in the cloud as well as on-premises,” said Art Landro, Cordys CEO. “CSC's use of Cordys' Business Operations Platform validates our ability to contribute power and agility as we simplify integration, business process management and application development.”
