From Local to Global: Equus Expands Global Tax Coverage to 223 Authorities  

The dust has settled on another busy season of new tax legislation. Since most countries follow a calendar tax year with changes effective January 1, New Year’s Day triggers a whirlwind of tax updates worldwide. For Equus, staying on top of these changes is not just a priority, but a testament to our commitment to keeping our Tax Engine up to date with accurate information. 

Throughout 2023, the Equus Tax team added 57 Essential countries to our global coverage, bringing the grand total to 223 supported authorities comprising 153 countries and 69 sub authorities. This comprehensive coverage includes 50 U.S. states (plus the District of Columbia), Canadian provinces, and Swiss cantons. 

A quick look into the stats that illustrate the volume of data the tax team processed in the past two releases with our expanded global coverage:

  • Scrutinized over 1,200 items to ensure no changes slipped through the cracks
  • Monitored almost 240 relevant issues for changes impacting the Tax Engine
  • Created more than 120 updates for the Engine
