The Great Tax Offshoring Debate

And how stakeholders can move beyond it


In debates over offshoring U.S. income tax, the differences between many CFOs and tax directors are usually much more perceived than real. We encourage CFOs and tax directors to start the discussion, not by debating the pros and cons of offshoring U.S. income tax, but by identifying the business outcomes they want to achieve. Having identified a common set of goals, they can then work hand in hand to learn more about the issues, understand each other’s perspectives, and – ultimately – select and pursue a course of action that both believe can benefit the organization and improve tax department effectiveness and efficiency.

 In this way, they can transform the debate about offshoring U.S. income tax into a dialogue about getting the work done at a sustainable cost. And that’s a goal that everyone can agree on.
