Vertex Lease Tax Solution Streamlines Tax Processes for Daimler Financial Services



by Steve Barclay

Vertex Inc., the leading provider of enterprise corporate tax solutions, has announced that Daimler Financial Services selected Vertex® Lease Tax O Series® to alleviate the tax compliance burden around sales, use and value-added tax requirements for vehicle leasing.

“There are tens of thousands of lease-specific tax rules that require constant monitoring,” said Deborah Bright of Daimler Financial Services’ Office of Tax Affairs. “Vertex’s proven ability to deliver a lease tax system that supports these unique requirements, along with its proven skill in supporting an implementation of this size and scope, were the deciding factors.”

Daimler Financial Services will leverage Vertex Lease Tax O Series as a core component of its Global Products, Processes and Systems (GPS) initiative – an enterprise-wide, multi-year project to transform the company’s products, processes and systems. The GPS platform will serve as a common architecture to support the company’s worldwide operations.

Vertex Lease Tax O Series is a comprehensive solution that alleviates the tax compliance burden, while saving considerable time, money and other limited resources. In addition, Vertex Lease Tax O Series provides centralized control and maintenance of leasing and rental taxability rules, and rates to support consistent and accurate lease tax calculation. The solution eliminates the need for manual research, reduces the time and resources spent managing the complex tasks associated with lease tax compliance – leading to greater operational efficiencies and a more productive tax department.

“Vertex is very pleased to extend our partnership with DCFS USA LLC to include the Vertex O Series platform,” said Chris Jones, Director of Sales for Vertex. “DCFS USA LLC recognized that Vertex is the only provider that offers a central indirect tax platform to support the intricacies of lease tax compliance, not only here in North America, but across the globe.”
