This special report takes an in-depth look at the issues faced by those in charge of managing their company’s tax disputes, and the processes, practices, and resources they have in place to meet these challenges.
The Global Tax Disputes benchmarking report (PDF 752 KB) is based on a secondary survey that was included in KPMG International’s 2016 Global Tax benchmarking survey which offers an inside view of the structure, governance, priorities and performance measures of tax departments today and delivers insights on how leading tax departments expect to transform in the next 5 years.
For tax executives of international companies – including those charged with tax dispute management – benchmarking against comparable tax departments can be a powerful tool for reflecting on your organizational structures and competencies. It can also help leaders assess how the changes made today can help prepare organizations for the challenges and opportunities they are likely to face tomorrow.
The current survey tells us that companies are seeing a significant rise in tax audits and disputes, and all signs point toward even more intense tax authority activity in the future. The pace at which tax authorities have changed and intensified their approach – both unilaterally and in cooperatively – has been surprising.
