Navigating tax: Complex issues, accelerated change

"As multi-national companies consider facilities expansion strategies across the globe, particularly in developing markets, many factors ultimately influence their location decisions. In addition to labor costs, skilled workers, raw materials and regional growth potential, a myriad of regulatory and political issues also come into play. Further, with many countries vying for investment capital as well as tax revenue, companies must carefully monitor evolving tax legislation and potential incentives associated with new potential jobs growth or technology expansion in each market."
