In their drive for efficiency and cost savings, companies that are reviewing and transforming their finance functions and tax functions need to keep pace with the variety of ongoing changes. As global businesses move toward centralization, centers of excellence and shared service centers, tax and statutory responsibilities should not be overlooked. Increasing compliance requirements, aggressive tax audits and reputational and financial risk are just some of the potential pitfalls faced as a new sourcing-led finance strategy is implemented.
