Tax by Industry: Retail & Distribution


As retail companies prepare to serve an aging U.S. customer base while at the same time going green and expanding globally into new markets, efficient and effective tax planning is more critical than ever.

To remain competitive, a supply chain that helps address your tax burden is critical. Your global tax planning and compliance structure should be nimble enough to quickly accommodate emerging markets and changing laws. Your information systems need to be granular enough to provide the information necessary to address compliance needs and analyze potential planning strategies. Such strategies might include tax-advantaged green incentives, expansion structuring, and potential tax savings and elections available through tax accounting in areas such as income recognition, inventory and depreciation.

Learn more about the impact of tax return reporting of UTPs and what it means for your retail enterprise.
