Jan-Martin’s journey: A Tax Director in Our Group Tax

Can you tell me a little bit about your role and yourself?

Driving the Digitization of Our Direct Tax Processes

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Jan-Martin Heise.

Currently I work as a Tax Director at Group Tax. There, I am leading the initiative to digitize our direct tax processes. In my role, I have the privilege of combining my extensive knowledge of taxation with my deep enthusiasm for technology.

Imagine how painful it is to compile income tax data the old-fashioned way. First, you get financial information from system, paste that into an Excel spreadsheet, perform multiple manual steps there one after the other to then paste some entries back into the accounting system. Think of the complexity and time it would take if you had to do this for all legal entities of a multinational organization such as ours! Now, we embarked on a journey away from traditional spreadsheet-based tax management to a centralized platform that serves as a one-stop shop for income tax accounting matters. By implementing a state-of-the-art technology, our projects simplify the income tax processes, automates data entries and empowers our accountants to work more efficiently while reducing errors. As a result, our accountants will win valuable time back to focus on higher-value tasks, ultimately driving greater productivity and accuracy in our tax processes.

Why do you work at the company?

Ownership and Engagement: Make a Meaningful Impact

One of the things that sets the company apart is how it encourages open dialogue. During my first interviews at Group Tax I felt the culture of transparency we foster employees to share their thoughts, ideas, and concerns. This openness was and will always be key for me since it creates a working environment where I comfortable express my opinion and challenge the status quo. Ever since I work for my employer, ownership and engagement were valued, making me feel heard and caring about my job. Here, I am given the opportunity to make a meaningful impact. This level of recognition and appreciation for my contributions has been instrumental in creating a sense of fulfillment and job satisfaction.

Another important aspect at my employer is continuous learning: every day teaches me something new from project management skills, team dynamics to hard facts in the world of finance and taxation.

Above all that, the people I work with are an inspiring team and give me a reason to start my days with a smile on my face.

What do you do during your private time?

Put on Your Hiking Boots and Get Ready for an Everyday Adventure

I enjoy spending quality time with my family, sharing values with my sons and providing guidance. We love to spend time out in the nature together and explore the hill region nearby, mountains or simply the countryside. Hiking allows me to connect with nature, explore new landscapes and escape the pace of everyday life.

A quote that inspires me in every aspect of life:

” All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us"

By Gandalf in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
