The Global Tax Benchmarking Survey 2016 offers an overall snapshot of the structure, governance, priorities and performance measures of tax departments today — and delivers insights on how leading tax departments expect to transform over the next 5 years.

Key takeaways for Canadian Tax leaders

For the most part, Canadian tax functions are in step with global norms but it seems that Canadian companies have some catching up to do in two important areas: governance and transparency, and tax technology. The Canadian supplement to the Global Tax Benchmarking Survey 2016 [PDF 249 KB] explores these significant areas and provides insight to help tax departments keep pace with compliance obligations and disruptive technological advancements.

How does your tax department compare?

Benchmarking against comparable tax departments can be a powerful tool for reflecting upon the department you have today, and thinking about how you will transform it for tomorrow.

KPMG’s 2016 Global Tax Benchmarking Survey remains open and Canadian tax leaders still have an opportunity to take part and broaden the survey’s results. Upon completing the survey, you can request a personalized report showing how your tax function compares with other tax functions in Canada and worldwide.
