Structuring and cash repatriation planning from Middle East based international tax experts

If you’re operating across borders, having a robust tax strategy which is aligned with your corporate strategy continues to be a complex area.

If you are either a Middle East based group investing internationally or investing into the region, understanding the impact of tax policy and legislative changes on your operations and your cross-border transactions is more than ever a part of assessing the commercial returns on those investments.
