Tax by Industry: Telecom
Telecommunications companies often struggle to define themselves today. Media convergence, globalization and consumer demands continually change market imperatives.
With each new development come new tax implications. In one of the most heavily taxed U.S. industries, executives must weigh the tax consequences of virtually every decision. From product development and service provision to billing and repairs, from your merger and acquisition and outsourcing strategies to decisions about offshoring and joint ventures; effective tax planning and compliance can mean the difference between taking giant strides and getting stuck in a quagmire.
Global markets simply lead to other complexities. Foreign jurisdictions often approach telecommunications differently, particularly in terms of policy, regulation and taxation. This potentially means keeping up with literally hundreds, if not thousands, of additional tax issues.
Managing these complexities requires an integrated team of specialists experienced in both telecommunications and tax — and you need forward thinkers who can look beyond the horizon to the issues of the future. Deloitte Tax LLP can help. Download the attachment to learn more.
