International Tax has been saved
Deloitte's International Tax professionals offer services that help multinational companies align their tax strategies to their business, through a wide variety of compliance and advisory services. Professionals in our international tax practices provide a comprehensive range of inbound and outbound tax services.
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 rationalization. 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 realize 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, customized tax and business model transformation services. We particularly specialize in the areas of global supply chain and intellectual property, seeking to align business objectives with tax minimization. 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.
International expansion services (IES)
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 services include location assessments, market trends analysis, and site selection, all the way through to legal structuring, investment constructs, compliance requirements, talent and staffing strategies, and identification and evaluation of indirect, corporate and employment tax considerations.

Intellectual property (IP) is a cornerstone of most multinational businesses, on which their financial and brand value is built. Registered patents, trademarks, and copyrights as well as unpatented technology, know-how, brands, and even customer contracts, can be powerful, mobile and invisible drivers of value. Deloitte’s IP Tax Planning services incorporate a combination of specialized skills, experience and effective practices from our International Tax, Transfer Pricing Tax, and M&A teams.
