Tax & Legal Symposium 2023

Navigating the new normal for tax & legal compliance management

The world is changing and so are businesses. The new leaner business organisations look at factors, internal and external, for improving productivity and while doing so, reducing work cycles and costs. These can be achieved by channelling resources in core business operations and outsourcing non-core operations, such as tax compliance and controversy management.

Tax Operate is outsourcing an organisation’s tax function to achieve efficiencies in operations, which involves moving compliance and management related activities to shared service centres or third-party tax service providers.

At Deloitte we believe that adaptation and upgrades are necessary for businesses and tax functions, which are changing rapidly with ever changing tax laws and logics, newer compliances, and greater availability of data with authorities. Tax Operate, as we see, is the future of tax operations and provides a never before opportunity to a business to focus on core areas rather than repeated and mundane tax activities that can be co-sourced, if not outsourced, to tax service providers.

For our 2023 Tax & Legal Symposium, we commenced with a plenary session on “Tax Operating Model” and “Thailand Economic Outlook 2023”. Then we had break-out sessions on various current tax and legal topics listed below.
