Tax Reporting and Strategy


We work with our clients to meet the complex challenges  in the following areas:

finance & accounting, payroll, tax management and administrative support.

Globalisation and technological development over the last decade, together with an increasing need for rationalising costs, have led companies to focus on their core businesses, transferring resources from accessory activities. Outsourcing of administrative and financial functions – including finance & accounting, payroll, tax management and other administrative tasks – is not always an easy decision since it requires a partner that can provide efficient and reliable support. A good cost-benefit rationale is also the key for the success of such decision.

Driving value through the tax and accounting functions

In order to ensure long term success, tax departments must institute integrated operational improvements to:

  • Create, protect and optimize value in the context of the organization’s business objectives
  • Manage the wide range of tax accounting-related risks of doing business
  • Ensure compliance with tax laws and reporting requirements against ever-changing global standards

With an increasing focus on tax issues around the world, companies rely on advisers to help them meet their tax obligations and operate efficiently in today’s complex global tax environment. PwC has the largest tax network in the world based on the quality of our work and our commitment.

We adapt our approach to the specific circumstances of our clients: we listen to our clients, understand their needs and develop an appropriate solution.

Our TRS (Tax Reporting & Strategy) teams worldwide work either from our offices or at our clients’ facilities, using either our clients’ ERPs or ours, as required. We offer our clients the support of dedicated technical specialists, allowing easy and reliable access to relevant information, enhancing effective control over financial, accounting, tax and human resources functions, for the right price. By addressing issues head-on, our clients are able to devise, communicate and risk management to drive value throughout their entire tax and accounting functions.

TRS can help you build sourcing models to adapt to your internal resources strengths or fill gaps in those resources where they exist. We can coordinate the outsourcing of your compliance, across borders, for direct and indirect taxes, statutory financial statement production and tax reporting.

In today’s global marketplace, the ability to provide management access to financial data - whenever and wherever needed - is crucial to maintaining a competitive edge.

The IT infrastructure and applications required to provide this transparency have become increasingly complex and expensive, especially for small and medium enterprises.

In addition, increasing reporting requirements - not only statutory but also management and tax - and the shortage of accounting professionals have made it very difficult to have your own multidisciplinary finance department covering all these needs.
