Tax Advice

Tax Compliance

No mat­ter how care­ful you are, you can ne­ver ent­irely rule out mis­ta­kes in your day-to-day busi­ness ope­ra­ti­ons. That’s why cor­rec­ting tax re­turns of­ten be­co­mes the rule, ra­ther than the ex­cep­tion. But the di­vi­ding line bet­ween this and al­le­ga­ti­ons of tax eva­sion can be very thin in­deed, so it’s vi­tal to avoid lia­bi­lity risk and po­ten­tial cri­mi­nal pro­se­cu­ti­ons for your com­pany and its go­verning bo­dies.

At the same time, though, you don’t want to act as the agent of tax aut­ho­ri­ties, over and above your le­gal ob­li­ga­ti­ons. Tax com­pli­ance al­lows you to do all of this.

Let us help you ex­amine and re­veal the hid­den tax risks in your com­pany. A tax com­pli­ance ma­nage­ment sys­tem gi­ves you the struc­tures you need to stop the th­reat of cri­mi­nal pro­cee­dings han­ging over your com­pany. Join forces with tax ex­perts from Eb­ner Stolz to iden­tify the stum­bling blocks in your tax de­part­ment, es­pe­cially where it in­ter­faces with other cen­tral func­tions in your com­pany. We will then use this as a ba­sis for de­ve­lo­ping a tailo­red tax com­pli­ance ma­nage­ment sys­tem for you, gi­ving you a de­tai­led over­view of the po­ten­tial risks and enab­ling you to take ac­tion where you need to.

But tax com­pli­ance of­fers a lot more than this. That’s be­cause ana­ly­zing the work­flows in your tax de­part­ment and the func­tions that pro­cess (tax) data al­lows you to iden­tify po­ten­tial for fur­ther op­ti­miza­tion and enhance ef­fi­ci­ency. Let us help you to le­ver­age this op­por­tu­nity.
