International tax

Overview

International taxDeloitte’s International tax professionals help multinational companies reduce taxes on earnings, enhance margins and grow their businesses through a wide variety of compliance and advisory services. Deloitte offers innovative approaches that align with a company’s overall business objectives and the way the company operates. Professionals in our globally managed international tax practice provide a comprehensive range of inbound and outbound tax services, including: 

Compliance services 

Tax departments of multinational businesses face formidable challenges coping with the profusion of compliance requirements imposed by the countries in which they operate. The increasing number of rules, more rigorous enforcement by tax authorities and staffing constraints compound these challenges. Deloitte offers efficient, cost-effective compliance services, including co-sourcing and outsourcing options and a proven suite of integrated tax technologies that provide benefits throughout the life cycle of the organization. We help multinationals gain greater confidence in their level of compliance through improved data management and by validating data integrity and accuracy. We help reduce risk, provide more timely and transparent reporting and improve overall compliance efficiency by automating and systematizing routine and repetitive tasks.

International strategic tax reviews 

As companies expand globally, their global tax and treasury strategies need to become more integrated, flexible and sustainable. Deloitte’s International Strategic Tax Review (ISTR) helps companies understand the drivers of their effective tax rate (ETR) and potential opportunities to reduce it. We assist with foreign tax credit planning, repatriation planning, ETR modeling, post-merger integration and legal entity rationalization. An ISTR provides a framework for discussion, design and implementation of global tax and treasury strategies that are aligned with the company’s business objectives. Deloitte’s fact-driven, analytical—rather than intuitive—approach helps multinational companies to objectively and methodically chart their tax strategy going forward.

International mergers and acquisitions 

International mergers and acquisitions (M&A) continue to be a prime focus of tax authorities around the world. The host of challenges raised by M&A transactions calls for deep experience across a wide range of issues in multiple jurisdictions. Deloitte’s International tax professionals around the world deliver targeted support designed to guide companies through cross-border deals with an understanding of local culture and business environments. Deloitte participates in all aspects of cross-border mergers, acquisition or disposition transactions, including due diligence, structuring, modeling, financing, post-merger integration and reporting.

Business model optimization 

In light of today’s dynamic global economic environment and the potential for legislative changes, assessing a multinational’s global business model may no longer be an optional exercise. Deloitte’s Business model optimization (BMO) team provides high quality, customized tax and business model transformation services. We focus primarily on global supply chain and intellectual property planning, seeking to align business objectives with tax minimization. Our goal is to help multinationals integrate their operational and tax planning in a scalable and sustainable way to enable business leaders make more effective decisions on an after-tax basis.
