Today, tax compliance is more than simply submitting a correct tax return on time. In recent years much emphasis has been placed on transparency by the OECD and the EU in order to tackle ‘aggressive’ tax planning.
In order to boost transparency, several measures have recently been implemented or will be implemented in the near future. Examples are the introduction of the country-by-country reporting, the introduction of the UBO-register, the common reporting standards and the automatic exchange of rulings. Some of these measures will imply a greater degree of disclosure by companies and therefore an increase in the tax reporting obligations.
As a result of these measures, companies may also face a higher level of scrutiny from the tax authorities in the future. It is therefore essential that your organisation is aware of its tax risks and has a system in place to manage these tax risks properly. Only then you will have a grip on the tax function and your management will be entirely in control of tax matters.
