Tax

Today's business world is teeming with pressures. The need for innovation and growth to stay competitive. Increased cross border activity. Heightened regulation. Not to mention the challenging tax environment. Complex tax rules. More tax transparency. Authorities acting on mandates to protect the tax base. A backdrop of media attention.
