Global compliance and reporting

Our teams work together in EY’s global model to complete timely and accurate tax and financial filings so companies have an increased level of confidence that they are meeting legal obligations. Our people also can identify ways to help increase value, efficiency and control in these core functions.

Human capital, including expatriate services

With skills shortages in the sector and the increasingly mobile nature of mining and metals teams, we understand the needs of attracting, managing and retaining people who are constantly moving across borders.

Our performance and reward professionals help design compensation programs and equity incentives to engage key people and attract top-flight talent. We offer assistance in helping you meet local regulatory change and manage global talent effectively.

Tax policy and controversy

Resource nationalism is on the rise, and there is a continuing need to engage and negotiate with government. Our worldwide network of tax policy and controversy professionals includes former top government officials who are committed to helping you with strategies to engage with government and to proactively manage risks to avoid unnecessary conflict with tax authorities.

We can also help resolve existing disputes in ways that reduce the impact on our clients’ business. Our professionals can provide fiscal and economic insights and impact assessments on key issues.

Cross border advisory

Our dedicated international tax professionals assist our clients with their cross-border tax structuring, planning, reporting and risk management. Our market-leading global tax desk network - a co-located team of highly experienced professionals from multiple countries - has revolutionized the way we provide international tax services.

We work with you to build proactive and truly integrated global tax strategies that address the tax risks of today's businesses and achieve sustainable growth.

Transaction taxes

Every transaction has tax implications, whether it's an acquisition, disposal, refinancing, restructuring or initial public offering. Understanding and planning for these implications can mitigate transaction risk, enhance opportunity and provide crucial negotiation insights.

Our Transaction Tax services comprise a worldwide network of professional advisors who can help you do just that. By combining diverse cross-border transaction experience with local tax knowledge across a broad spectrum of industry sectors, we can help you make informed decisions and navigate the tax implications of your transaction.
