Via the global network of KPMG member firms our Tax practice is able to offer our clients a full portfolio of services covering various jurisdictions but through communication with their local Tax professionals, (providing a “one-stop shop” of sorts), who will address specific client needs and particular situations. Our advice on international taxation may lower effective tax rates resulting in cash-flow benefits and enhanced value for shareholders.
We also provide tax calculation and compliance services to foreign investors. Considering the needs of our clients and their activities carried out in Lithuania, we can offer full tax accounting or only its specific element thereof, e.g. preparation of corporate income tax, VAT returns, payroll calculations and preparation of required returns, etc. Accordingly, KPMG professionals in other jurisdictions can offer analogous services to Lithuanian investors in respective countries.
