Multinational organizations will continue to spend more time and resources managing tax controversies in both their local and overseas markets. Tax authorities are sharing information about companies and focusing increasingly on implementation failure and motive rather than technical merit. Deloitte’s team includes former tax authority officials, alternative dispute resolution specialists, and in many countries, tax litigation specialists who can assist multinational businesses at all levels of the Tax Controversy Cycle. We developed Tax Controversy Management software to help multinational companies consistently control and manage tax controversies across multiple jurisdictions.

Deloitte can assist in effectively navigating the myriad of tax, accounting, legal, regulatory, cultural, and labor issues that arise in a transaction and help you to fully realize the anticipated post integration synergies.

Beginning in January 2013, virtually all non-U.S. financial intermediaries and withholding agents that own or hold U.S. investments will be subject to the information reporting and disclosure requirements of the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA). This U.S. legislation will greatly impact organizations’ tax functions, technology systems, operations, and business strategy. As a recognized leader in both tax and technology, Deloitte is uniquely qualified to assess and address all of the implications related to compliance with FATCA. From analysis and remediation of existing systems to design and implementation of enterprise-wide systems and practical procedures needed to identify and report required information to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, our specialists keep businesses one step ahead in this developing area of compliance and risk.
