International Tax Advisory

As companies expand globally, their global tax and treasury strategies need to become more integrated, flexible and sustainable

International Strategic Tax Review (ISTR)

Deloitte's International Strategic Tax Review (ISTR) helps companies understand the drivers of their effective tax rate (ETR), assess risks, and better align tax management with future business model developments. Deloitte assists with foreign tax credits, hybrids analysis, income repatriation, ETR forecasting, transfer pricing analysis, risk management, post-merger integration and legal entity rationalisation by assessing the potential applicability of tax regimes and elections. An ISTR provides a framework for discussion, design and implementation of global tax and treasury strategies. Deloitte helps multinational companies to objectively and methodically chart their tax strategy and manage risk going forward. 

All transactions—whether mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures, equity investments, or divestitures—raise complex issues regarding potential tax risks and provide opportunities to implement practical strategies to improve tax efficiency and certainty. When deals involve companies with global operations, the range of issues to consider are compounded. Companies need an adviser with deep experience across a wide range of issues in multiple jurisdictions. Deloitte offers support in all aspects of mergers, acquisition or disposition transactions, including due diligence, structuring, modelling, financing, post-merger integration and reporting. Deloitte can assist in effectively navigating the myriad of tax, accounting, regulatory, cultural, and labour issues that arise in a transaction and helps companies to fully realize the anticipated post integration benefits.

Increasingly, companies looking to grow revenues and increase profitability are expanding sales and operations into new geographies. Starting with a company's strategic objectives, Deloitte helps businesses to quickly navigate new landscapes by advising on a wide variety of start-up activities. Deloitte’s tax services include tax structuring, investment constructs, compliance requirements, and identification and evaluation of indirect, corporate and employment tax considerations. Deloitte offers businesses a coordinated approach through a single point of contact and brings together professionals with specialised skills at the appropriate points in time. This helps organisations be confident that they have access to appropriate skills at an appropriate time, accelerate timelines and to realize the benefits of their expansion efforts.

Deloitte’s International Tax professionals are at the forefront of navigating the world of post-BEPS international tax reforms for clients and achieving appropriate outcomes in this new environment.

Deloitte provides high quality, customised tax and business model transformation services that seek to align business objectives with effective tax positions. Deloitte’s services include review of global supply chains, location of intellectual property, cross-border repatriation options and exit strategy, rationalisation of group structure and transaction flows, review of tax treaty network and local/foreign tax credit entitlement.

Our goal is to help multinationals integrate their operational planning and tax planning in a scalable and sustainable way to enable business leaders to make more effective decisions on an after-tax basis.
