You and the Taxman

EY contributed a weekly column titled You and the Taxman in the Business Times from September 2004 to August 2005. After the column ended, we decided to continue running You and the Taxman as a magazine publication for you. This magazine provides you with hot topics and insights on a broad range of current and emerging tax issues, as well as practical tips for tax planning and tax risk management. The debut issue was launched in November 2005.
