Corporate Taxes & Tax Efficiency

At home and abroad

A company’s suitability to generate profits and be successful is not only dependent on its operational business but also on its tax footprint. Correctly applied, an optimised tax strategy can improve profitability at all levels within a company. Today we see that technological changes in processes and organisation have profound effects on a company’s performance, its financing flows as well as its management. PwC’s corporate tax consulting approach is geared towards aligning the direct and indirect tax consequences of such changes to the particularities of a company – whether large or small. Any recommended actions will be fully compliant with relevant national and international tax regulations and will have considered developments at the supranational level (e.g. OECD and EU), and at a local level in the countries affected. We place great emphasis on efficient and practical structuring, pointing out tax effects resulting from different business models including associated transfer pricing and we help to avoid tax risks.
