We’ll help you navigate the global tax landscape

The business and tax landscapes have changed dramatically, and the pace and complexity of change continues to increase. We can help you navigate this shifting landscape. Governments are tempering the need for revenue with increased competition for labor and capital. Tax authorities are adapting their enforcement strategies, focus and policies in response to the changing dynamics of business. Companies are balancing competing priorities, ensuring they maintain compliance while adding value. We can assist you with these critical issues in today's tax environment, including:


  • Seizing the opportunity in Global Compliance and Reporting

    Global Compliance and Reporting (GCR) is at a tipping point. Many companies distribute responsibility for GCR processes throughout their organization creating a patchwork. The results are suboptimal. Our recent survey shows a need for a new approach.

    Due to the combination of evolving business models, transforming finance functions and an increasingly complex regulatory landscape. There are new opportunities to better optimize efficiency, control and value, to help mitigate risk and improve performance.

    What is Global Compliance and Reporting?

    GCR comprises the key elements of a company's finance and tax processes that prepare statutory financial and tax filings as required in countries around the world. These duties include:

    • Statutory accounting and reporting
    • Tax accounting and provisions
    • Income tax compliance
    • Indirect tax compliance
    • Governance and control of the above processes

    GCR activities reside in the middle of a broader set of so-called record-to-report (R2R) processes. R2R is the intersection between any company's finance and tax departments and is used to capture, process and store information that is essential to statutory accounting, tax compliance and reporting. Any change to R2R processes, information, finance systems, roles and responsibilities will have a direct impact on GCR processes.

    Risk on the rise

    GCR risks are on the rise. Local jurisdictions are rewriting regulations, focusing more intently on the collection of tax revenues and sharing more taxpayer information across borders. At the same time, the global financial crisis has driven companies to redesign their finance operating models to remain competitive and to take advantage of opportunities for growth.

    Our new report Seizing the opportunity in Global Compliance and Reporting investigates the significant developments taking place as multinational companies determine the best way to meet financial reporting and tax obligations worldwide.

    Our case study highlights how we helped leverage an array of external providers
