PRESENTATION

The age-old verbiage that taxes just don’t apply to the Cloud is gone with the wind. Cloud providers such as VoIP, Data and, in some instances, IOT companies are now subject to most all of the same taxes that a traditional carrier is subject to. With jurisdictions moving to apply telecommunications taxes to Cloud providers offering access, taxation of Cloud services just became risky. This session will consider the new legislation on Cloud Provider taxation to ensure the microscope of taxes is clear but not over magnified as well as look at savings models to reduce taxes, fees and recovery line items.
