Perhaps Benjamin Franklin got it wrong when he famously wrote, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” These days, tax is very often far from certain, at least from the perspective of the taxpayer. Within jurisdictions, regulations frequently change and even a subtle recalibration of a tax system can have numerous – and global – implications for both corporates and individuals.
