Tax controversy & risk management

Managing controversy, mitigating risk, strengthening relationships

As business models grow in complexity and geographic reach, the challenges and risks related to tax controversy increase significantly.

There are financial as well as reputational risks that can be costly if not managed proactively. The stakes are high.

As tax administrators at home and abroad focus on large businesses, cross-border transactions and the movement of human capital, resources, assets and tax revenue, they’re also cooperating more, exchanging information and collaborating on enforcement efforts.

With all of these factors in play, businesses need to build in “controversy thinking” as part of the tax lifecycle of planning, provision, and compliance and reporting. They also need to think globally when identifying challenges and opportunities related to tax controversy and risk management.

That’s what our tax controversy and risk management services (TCRMS) are designed to help clients do.

We offer a comprehensive set of services for all of the stages of the tax lifecycle.
