International Tax 

As the global market continues to open up, companies face the difficult task of dealing with foreign tax systems that are often at vastly divergent stages of development. On the one hand, this can complicate decision making. But, on the other hand, such disparities can also provide multinational groups with important and unique tax-planning opportunities.
