Tax Management Consulting 

Businesses are facing an increasingly fast-moving environment and ever greater complexity in tax regulations. Developing and implementing a consistent, efficient approach to tax management is thus becoming more and more important. Our KPMG tax experts are on hand to provide the best possible support in this regard.

What’s it all about?


Taxes make up an important part of a company’s financial figures, meaning that they are also increasingly becoming of interest to the general public. For this reason, businesses need a well-organized tax department that works efficiently, ensures tax compliance and can calculate and report tax expenses correctly while at the same time creating transparency with regard to tax positions and risks. Only by doing all of this can companies respond quickly and flexibly to local changes to the law and standard practice, spot tax risks at an early stage and deal with them in the best way possible.


What challenges are involved?

  • Tax information must be precise and reliable if high-quality tax reporting is to be ensured.
  • Spotting and monitoring tax risks is becoming increasingly complicated as documentation requirements become more stringent.
  • Staff responsible for tax matters need to deal with new regulations and challenges on an ongoing basis.
  • Financial, information procurement and tax accounting systems must be used efficiently and in the best possible way in order to provide optimum support to tax and finance specialists.
