Global tax policy changes abound

Now more than ever, companies must have a cross-border perspective and awareness of tax issues stemming from transforming regulations, potential tax reform, changes to their business structure, geographic expansion, cost reduction, the tightening of credit markets, an increase in legislative focus on perceived tax avoidance, and an on-going pandemic.

Integrated Global Structuring (IGS) meetings help companies understand the art of the possible in the complex global tax environment. These highly customized sessions address a client's legal entity structure and operating model, taking into consideration - International Tax, M&A, Transfer Pricing, State and Local Tax (SALT).

Align the key functions in your value chain to accelerate profitability, increase efficiency, and create a solid foundation for sustainable growth.

How to augment cash flow

Companies across nearly every sector are focused on increasing liquidity and improving cash flow. Even companies performing well in the current environment are focused on raising and conserving cash.

Consider how your company can:

Get retroactive cash refunds of taxes already paid, duty drawbacks, and proactively reduce current and future taxes through proactive planning to capture prospective benefits.

Combine cash flow enhancement ideas with business initiatives to help increase the ROI.

Reduce the costs of operational and cloud transformations by leveraging federal incentives such as R&D credits and/or the various state and local incentives.
