Event Overview:


Tax is increasingly on the radar for companies given the current focus on paying the right amount of tax. In addition to shareholders, the government, media and public take an active interest in corporate tax compliance and whether companies are managing their own tax risks. At the same time, the level of complexity and the volume of disputes between tax authorities and taxpayers are on the rise. With an increasing amount of data that is being shared amongst tax authorities globally, and the use of data analytics and forensic tools, tax authorities are able to uncover non-compliant cases and target audit initiatives.

Boards and businesses today must understand how tax controversy trends may affect them and think ahead by putting a framework in place to prevent, manage and resolve tax disputes. A sound tax corporate governance framework will provide a strong system of management such that significant tax matters and risks can be mitigated.

Join us to learn about the approaches to managing tax disputes and how to implement a robust tax corporate governance framework within your organisation.
