HP Inc. reinvents tax operations with new technology and talent

KPMG helps reengineer tax operations for a client known for innovation


HP, Inc




Global tax outsourcing

Client challenge

With its mission to create technology that makes life better for everyone, everywhere — HP Inc. strives to engineer experiences that amaze, delight, and inspire. In 2019, this Fortune 50, multinational company announced a bold plan to redeploy people, improve processes, and update automation in the 60+ countries where it operates. HP Inc. needed cost effective, well organized, and transparent tax operations that remain focused on quality and driving value for the company, to meet the dynamic demands of national, regional, and local tax authorities. Core to this was to achieve their operational objectives while also finding a solution that provided opportunities for their current team, which consisted of over 150 employees from HP, including employees from their finance hubs in Mexico, Poland, and India.

HP Inc. engaged the KPMG Tax team to thoroughly examine their tax operations and propose a comprehensive solution to achieve immediate and long-term objectives. The TRI team created a dedicated task force of tax, finance, IT, and human resource specialists from multiple KPMG locations. KPMG delivered custom tailored plans and strategies and quickly implemented them to help HP Inc. achieve its target operating model (TOM).
