In recent years, a new technology appeared in transaction authentication: Blockchain.

EY would like to use this technology to certify some information of a contract directly between the two parties. After, it will be able to produce a contract with this information: a smart contract. The tool should be able to adapt the private key of the system within a company. In addition, the confidentiality of some transaction should be addressed.

If you think your startup could help EY develop a tool based on Blockchain for our tax lawyers, apply now to be selected! You may be working with one of the “Big Four” services firms.

EY has a national presence in France with 4700 professionals in 15 areas. As a recent EY report “The digitization of everything” suggests, digital transformation is moving fast and could be a great opportunity to transform existing business models and could be a good way to grow. EY has four core business services: Assurance, Advisory, Transaction Advisory Services and Tax & Legal. Tax helps our clients understand and manage their tax compliance and reporting obligations responsibly and proactively. Tax helps them assess, improve and monitor their tax function’s processes, controls and risk management and maintain effective relationships with the tax authorities. Thus, one mission is checking contracts.
