Understanding complex taxes to improve global business opportunities

Congratulations to PwC's Mike Firth and Audrey Diamant for being recognized as indirect tax leaders in The Comprehensive Guide to the World's Leading Indirect Tax Advisers by The International Tax Review.

Canada operates within a complex indirect tax system. While some provinces have harmonization between federal and local indirect taxes, others operate with two systems in parallel. The lack of indirect tax harmonization can make it difficult for domestic and foreign corporations to operate in Canada.

Tax and export compliance also extends outside of Canadian borders. Governments worldwide use indirect taxes as a source of income, which leaves companies in Canada with complicated and fast-changing indirect tax compliance requirements. How can businesses that wish to successfully expand their operation or export goods juggle the time and resources to stay on top of indirect tax compliance changes?
