    Discover BDO's Total Tax Approach

A defined strategy for approaching tax risk.

Although the tax function has traditionally been thought of as a cost center, today it is viewed as adding value while managing tax risk. That value is especially important when navigating business decisions activated by crisis. With tax disputes on the rise and increasing reputational pressures related to tax, a robust risk management program is critical.

BDO helps businesses implement a tax risk strategy and proactively works with key stakeholders to manage the organization’s tax risk. Our process includes a holistic view of the tax function and uses a total tax approach.

As the global economy moves toward more tax risk scrutiny and transparency, is your tax department prepared?
 

Manage Risk With the Tax Control Framework

The Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) introduced the Tax Control Framework (TCF) to help enterprises ensure the accuracy of their tax returns and disclosures. By implementing a TCF and formalizing your approach to tax risk management, your organization will have better visibility into vulnerabilities and can uncover opportunities to improve tax operations. A TCF will help address issues resulting from unexpected tax examination findings, high tax department turnover, rapid growth or organizational transformation, and more.
