Efficient tax structuring is crucial for every multinational company. It has become more complex to balance operational requirements with a sound tax plan. This is especially the case in the midst of the negative sentiment regarding tax avoidance and the OECD’s BEPS project, an action plan to address among other things, inconsistencies between national tax laws that in the past might have resulted in double non-taxation or“stateless income.

It is essential to remain compliant while ensuring efficiency across your operations. A renowned and secure trusted partner to help administer your structures has become ever more important.
