PwC’s Iobhar Finn talks about his career in tax and how it has changed due to the advances in digital services.

PwC tax manager Iobhar Finn started in the firm’s Dublin office straight out of college in 2015. Since then, he said the sector has changed “pretty drastically”.

“The growth of the digital economy has really changed the indirect tax landscape around the world and I think that’s only been accelerated by the pandemic, moving businesses online,” he said.

“Every other day now, we’re seeing countries come online with new indirect tax rules, taxing non-resident suppliers of digital services, introducing rules to make a marketplace or intermediary liable for the taxes of underlying sellers, bringing in rules for electronic invoicing, e-reporting [and] real-time reporting.”
