Anyone who's ever made telecommunications purchases for their organization can agree on at least one thing: Invoices inevitably feature a huge number of vaguely defined 'taxes, surcharges, and fees.' In fact, these mysterious expenses often constitute more than 30% of total costs. It's hard enough for most companies to address that other 70% - why should they look more closely at these expenses? After all, aren't taxes and fees set in stone?
You might be surprised to find that many of these charges are far more negotiable - even avoidable - than the word 'taxes' might suggest. Some aren't really taxes at all. These charges are certainly complex, but they're far from indecipherable. Once you've committed to auditing them once, you should find that they're actually far simpler than you imagined.
