Tax Compliance: Addressing the Ongoing Challenge of Entity Compliance and Governance

Overview

Regulators around the world are getting tough on tax. Led by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation (OECD) and its Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project, it is getting increasingly complex and burdensome for companies to ensure that all their legal entities comply with local company and tax laws.

Corporate structure transparency around tax and economic substance must inform tax strategies for entities, or else the entire structure will risk its compliance status. The repercussions of not complying can result in hefty financial penalties compromising your organisation’s financial statement and compliance with business operations such as M&A and obtaining funding. This in turn will affect your reputation with stakeholders, therefore, impacting your organisation’s bottom line as businesses tread recessionary waters.

Join this webinar where panelists will discuss:

  • Tax obligations under the UK’s & Ireland’s Finance Acts, how are companies performing & best practice case examples
  • The implications of the global minimum tax rate on companies, and where that currently stands
  • The importance of a clear view of corporate structure for tax departments
  • The role of accurate corporate structure data in transfer pricing
  • How to design your corporate structure for optimal tax efficiencies
  • The role of entity software to support automation, collaboration, and risk mitigation within the dynamic tax landscape
  • Creating a business case & justification for technology investments
