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.

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.
