ESP: To Automation and Beyond

ESP minimizes manual interventions even when documentation is required, making it a powerful tool for supporting regulatory compliance, disclosure programs and information reporting.

At last year’s Sibos we demonstrated the strides GlobeTax was making in automating tax reclaim processes. Central to this strategy has been ESP, our proprietary electronic submission portal.
