Africa Center for Tax (ACT)
What is ACT?
Organisations with operations in multiple jurisdictions face tremendous challenges in keeping pace with each jurisdiction’s tax and regulations. For this reason, they often turn to Deloitte to outsource their direct and indirect tax compliance, as well as report processing.
With shared services and data management skills, our Africa Centre for Tax (ACT), which is based in Johannesburg, can support local, near shore and offshore compliance activities, covering the African continent. ACT covers all compliance related activities, also assisting in special circumstances, such as post-merger integration, shared services centres, Pan African accounting and tax processes and risk reviews which require substantial system, process and technology support.
