Strategizing International Tax Best Practices – by Keith Brockman

Communication of emerging tax risks targeted at increasing awareness of Best Practices via a regional/global tax newsletter provides a timely and efficient vehicle for valuable discussions.  Examples of some benefits include:

  • Increased focus and awareness on important aspects of a Global Tax Policy and / or Tax Risk Policy.
  • Resource for regional / corporate tax team contact information inviting questions re: potential tax risks.
  • Communication vehicle for introducing emerging strategic tax risks, especially in developing markets.
  • Highlights lessons learned in forming new Best Practices.
  • Introduction of new Tax Team members around the world.
  • Provides updates on tax related benefits derived from collaboration on plant expansions, R&D credits, Patent Box and Innovation synergies achieving lower local effective tax rates, etc.
  • Forum for tax diligence procedures of new accounting policies.
  • Reference for upcoming tax training courses, webinars and related reference materials.
  • Tax topic focus, describing potential risks in non-technical language, such as PE – what it is, how to recognize it, its adverse impact on cash taxes, ETR, accounting / operational complexities, etc.
  • ETR overview, why it’s important.
  • Increased tax return disclosures and self-assessment determinations; local and global significance.
  • Country and Regional developments.
  • Tool for heightened awareness among Tax Team members, inviting newsletter contributions and ideas.

I invite your ideas.
