International tax

Deloitte's International Tax professionals 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.

Compliance and reporting services

For both UK and international companies, managing tax and statutory compliance continues to be a challenge. As businesses expand operations into new markets, the complexity of managing tax risks and complying with reporting requirements multiplies.

Deloitte offers efficient, cost-effective tax compliance services, including co-sourcing and outsourcing options. In addition, a suite of integrated tax technologies can help companies achieve their goal of high quality, lower-cost compliance and have the potential to give businesses enhanced visibility of their global information.

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 labour issues that arise in a transaction and helps companies to fully realise the anticipated post-integration benefits.

Business model optimisation (BMO)

Business Model Optimisation (BMO) is the process of understanding the demands of operations and of tax law, and of integrating them into the business model. Deloitte provides high quality, customised tax and BMO services that focus on helping multinationals integrate operational and tax requirements in a scalable and sustainable way in order to help business leaders to make effective decisions on an after tax-basis.

Deloitte delivers BMO services using the BMO 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. Deloitte offers businesses a coordinated approach through a single point of contact and brings together professionals with specialised skills at the appropriate points in time. This helps organisations be confident that they have access to appropriate skills at an appropriate time, accelerate timelines and to realise the benefits of their expansion efforts.
