Why tax matters

Across the globe, companies’ tax affairs are facing increasing scrutiny from regulators, communities and clients. At the same time, bodies such as The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) are working on rules to change the way international business structures work.

Successful organisations need a proactive approach to tax to show how they are meeting their obligations. A positive tax strategy can also increase your reputation for openness and transparency among clients and communities, helping your business unlock its potential for growth.
