This special report takes an in-depth look at the issues faced by those in charge of managing their company’s tax disputes, and the processes, practices, and resources they have in place to meet these challenges.

The Global Tax Disputes benchmarking report is based on a secondary survey that was included in KPMG International’s 2016 Global Tax benchmarking survey which offers an inside view of the structure, governance, priorities and performance measures of tax departments today and delivers insights on how leading tax departments expect to transform in the next 5 years.

The Global Tax Disputes Benchmarking Survey 2016 zeroes in on how tax dispute departments meet their range of responsibilities and how tax leaders are responding (and expect to respond) to changing demands as controversy increases in a post-BEPS world.

Key takeaways for Canadian Tax leaders

The current survey indicates that companies globally are seeing significantly more tax audits and disputes. The pace at which tax authorities have changed and intensified their approach – both unilaterally and in cooperatively – has been surprising. All signs point toward even more intense tax authority activity in the future, and Canada is no exception. The Canadian supplement to the Global Tax Disputes Benchmarking Survey 2016 [PDF 130 KB] explores these significant areas and provides insight to help tax departments keep pace with compliance obligations and increased scrutiny by the CRA.

How does your tax department compare?

Benchmarking against comparable tax departments – including those charged with tax dispute management – can be a powerful tool for reflecting upon the department you have today, and thinking about how you will transform it for tomorrow.

KPMG’s Global Tax Benchmarking Survey remains open and Canadian tax leaders still have an opportunity to take part and broaden the survey’s results. Upon completing the survey, you can request a personalized report showing how your tax function compares with other tax functions in Canada and worldwide.
