Tax Quick Scan & Tax Due Diligence
Mitigating potential risks by identifying them early
Due to more capable Tax Authorities, Base Erosion and Profit Shifting changes, and the international exchange of information between Tax Authorities by means of FATCA and the Common Reporting Standards, and of course international publicity like the Starbucks and Apple cases and the Panama Papers, tax planning has become less important and it becomes more and more about tax risk mitigation.
When you are acquiring a business, you need to know what potential tax risks may be present and where you need to focus your attention when integrating the new business into your existing organization. But you may also be the one selling, and having a good understanding of the tax risks may optimize the selling price.
But maybe you just want to know if you file your returns correctly and the tax base is correct. A tax quick scan is a cost efficient way to identify any identifiable tax exposure you may have.
Our professionals will be able to assist you with an tax quick scan or tax due diligence (buyer or vendor) on the following taxes:
- Corporate income tax
- Turnover taxes
- Dividend withholding tax
- Payroll taxes
- Tourist and environmental levy
- Import duties
Being able to identify your risks brings piece of mind.
