Tax is a strategic issue for every business. We are being asked by our clients ‘what good looks like?”, how their tax operations benchmark against their peers and how they can demonstrate to all stakeholders that their tax affairs are adequately managed.
Tax is usually a key issue on the board’s agenda and a central factor in business decisions. Boards are asking for practical ways to gain control and assurance over managing their tax risk, tax reputation and their tax operations, while at the same time seeking value for money.
HMRC is also changing its approach and expectations. Companies are being asked to demonstrate a proactive approach to tax compliance and risk.
Our tax team has a wealth of experience supporting clients, across all industries, and advising on a full range of tax issues, including:
