Strategizing International Tax Best Practices – by Keith Brockman

PwC has published their 16th Annual Global CEO Survey: Tax strategy and corporate reputation: a business issue.

In addition to interesting observations in the survey, the following ideas are presented for consideration:

  • Have you had a discussion with your CEO about tax risks & strategies, including reputational risk?  S/he could also share with you their perceptions and information exchanged with their peers.
  • The upcoming G8 meeting will be discussing tax avoidance: do you plan to update your CFO & senior management?
  • Are Board of Director presentations planned for strategic and reputational tax risk?  (Don’t wait for them to ask)
  • Do you have a Tax Planning Policy?  If so, has it been discussed with the Board?
  • Is senior management aligned internally, and with the Board, on a position for tax transparency?
  • Is global tax planning a CEO priority, as focus on this topic is increasing among governments?
  • How are you avoiding tax strategy surprises?

I look forward to your comments.
