Taj and Deloitte’s International Tax professionals offer services across 150 countries that help multinational companies align their tax strategies to their business, through a wide variety of advisory and compliance services. In an economic environment ruled by growing crossborder business and increasingly complex and changing tax legislations, professionals in our international tax practices provide a comprehensive range of inbound and outbound tax services and innovative, yet secured solutions for expansion and investment projects.
Managing and securing the effective tax rate – International Strategic Tax Review (ISTR)
As companies expand globally, their global tax and treasury strategies need to become more integrated, flexible and sustainable. Taj’s International Strategic Tax Review (ISTR) helps companies understand the drivers of their effective tax rate (ETR), assess risks, and better align tax management with future business model developments. We assist with foreign tax credits, income repatriation, ETR forecasting, risk management, post-merger integration and legal entity rationalization. An ISTR provides a framework for discussion, design and implementation of global tax and treasury strategies. Taj’s fact-driven, analytical – rather than intuitive – approach helps multinational companies to objectively and methodically chart their tax strategy and manage risk going forward.
International mergers and acquisitions – global investment management
All transactions—whether mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, equity investments, or divestitures—raise complex issues regarding potential tax risks and provide opportunities to implement practical strategies to improve tax efficiency and certainty. When deals involve companies with global operations, the range of issues to consider is compounded. Companies need an adviser with deep experience across a wide range of issues in multiple jurisdictions. Taj offers support in all aspects of mergers, acquisition or disposition transactions, including due diligence, structuring, modeling, financing, post-merger integration and reporting. Taj can assist in effectively navigating the myriad of tax, accounting, regulatory, and labor issues that arise in a transaction and helps companies to fully realize the anticipated post integration benefits.
Our Transfer Pricing professionals design, adjust, amend, document and defend transfer pricing policies applicable to cross-border flows of goods, services, intellectual property or financing existing or to be put in place between long-owned affiliates and newly integrated investments to achieve a global and consistent business model. Our goal is to help multinationals integrate their operational and tax strategies in a scalable and sustainable way to enable business leaders make more effective decisions on an after-tax basis. Taj delivers business model optimization services using the BMO Insight methodology, a set of experience-based approaches to developing solutions to a range of tax issues and opportunities raised by transformation projects or changes in the global supply chain and intellectual property organisation.
Tax audit defense and litigation
Taj’s teams can provide technical assistance during tax examinations in France and abroad, as well as during any stage of pre-litigation and litigation processes in order for multinationals to benefit of an efficient and continued support to resolve disputes efficiently. Our litigation teams offers in-depth experience and knowledge of increasingly complex international tax issues and changing, multiple tax procedure rules.
Compliance and reporting services
For both domestic businesses and multi-national companies, compliance with an increasing number of tax rules, more rigorous and coordinated enforcement by tax authorities, and ongoing staffing constraints continue to be a challenge. As businesses expand operations into new markets the complexity of managing tax risks and complying with reporting requirements multiplies. Taj offers efficient, cost-effective tax compliance services, including co-sourcing and outsourcing options. A suite of integrated tax technologies can help companies achieve their goal of high quality, lower-cost compliance. In addition, some technologies have the potential to give businesses enhanced visibility into more global information that may be useful to them in strategic decision making.
