Attitudes to tax are changing. Organizations of all sizes are ever more exposed...
In today’s world tax is a fact of life - whether you are an individual, small or medium sized entity, or a multi-national organisation you are affected by it. Furthermore, the recent global financial turmoil has ignited a world of challenges in the tax field and a changing attitude towards fiscal matters.
In a time when it appears that economies are starting to recover, organisations and private individuals are faced with unprecedented levels of tax regulation, increased reporting obligations and new trends in the tax authorities’ practices and enforcement. There is an overwhelming amount of material to keep up with. By combining all these factors together, managing tax issues can become complex particularly when you try to strike a balance between time, cost and compliance, planning and strategy, risks and benefits.
