International Strategic Tax Review (ISTR)
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), assess risks, and better align tax management with future business model developments. Deloitte assists with foreign tax credits, income repatriation, ETR forecasting, risk management, post-merger integration and legal entity rationalisation. An ISTR provides a framework for discussion, design and implementation of global tax and treasury strategies. Deloitte's fact-driven, analytical – rather than intuitive – approach helps multinational companies to objectively and methodically chart their tax strategy and manage risk going forward.
International mergers and acquisitions
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 issue to consider is 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, modeling, financing, post-merger integration and reporting. Deloitte can assist in effectively navigating the myriad of tax, accounting, regulatory, cultural, and labor issues that arise in a transaction and helps companies to fully realise the anticipated post integration benefits.
Value Chain Alignment (VCA)
In light of today's dynamic global economic environment and recent legislative changes, assessing a multinational's global business model may no longer be an optional exercise. Deloitte's Value Chain Alignment (VCA) teams provide high quality, customised tax and business model transformation services. We particularly specialise in the areas of global supply chain and intellectual property, seeking to align business objectives with tax minimisation. 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.
Deloitte delivers VCA services using the VCA Insight methodology, a set of experience-based approaches to developing solutions to a range of tax issues and opportunities.
