Indirect Tax 

The magnitude of indirect tax collections are rarely highlighted in annual reports, even though they can have a material impact on an entity's balance sheet and represent up to a third of an entity’s income and raise significant risks.

Minor indirect tax errors can translate to significant consequences through the repetition of transactions. Inefficient business structures or processes can prove costly and destroy a deal.


As entities expand into new markets they often encounter complex cross-jurisdictional issues involving indirect taxes that increase tax risks. Uncertainty or unnecessary complexity can result in businesses bearing indirect taxes as a bottom line cost, even where they are ultimately intended to be borne by consumers.
