Intellectual Property Tax Planning Services

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, Multistate Tax, and M&A teams. Delivered within the framework of our broader Business Model Optimization (BMO) framework, we strongly believe that any IP tax planning should align with your business goals and strategies and reinforce your efforts to address risk management and compliance.

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.
