Good governance in tax is currently high — if not top — on the agenda of many enterprises’ tax departments. According to EY’s 2023 Tax Risk and Controversy Survey, 69% of companies expect their focus on tax governance to grow in the coming two years.

Tax authorities, too, are demonstrating an intense focus on taxpayer’s tax governance. Via a rapidly increasing number of programs that focus on testing tax governance, they are sorting taxpayers into different categories of risk. Those with strong tax governance in place will be granted a “light touch” tax audit approach for a set period of time.

Conversely, those companies unable to demonstrate full control of their global management of tax risk may find themselves under continuous review or audit.

Join this 60-minute webcast in which EY professionals will:

  • Describe the philosophy behind tax authority programs that test tax governance

  • Discuss the typical components of tax governance that tax authorities test within their programs

  • Review the mechanics of a typical mandatory program — HMRC’s Business Risk Review + program

  • Examine the mechanics and benefits of a typical voluntary program — Singapore’s tax governance framework

  • Describe how to develop a global tax governance framework approach that includes options for localization
