Tax Governance Overview of Recent Developments and Best Practice for Tax Practitioners (Session 2)
The cornerstone of a sustainable tax function is a strategic tax governance framework. It is also a key driver to build trust with stakeholders. To establish a sustainable and coherent approach to tax governance, the governing board requires a framework to bring it all together.
In this webinar session, we will look at a variety of visible trends, globally and locally, that indicate the important role of tax governance, not only to create shareholder value, but moving towards providing enduring value to stakeholders and sustainable participation in societies.
We will consider a variety of internal and external factors driving change and business “disruption” and determine why tax needs to be open to new ideas, innovative business models, operational structures, multi layered skills and resources.
The bottom line is that for tax matters, just as for environmental and social issues, governing boards are now expected to give serious consideration to the purpose of their company, and to reflect on how that informs behaviour in relation to tax.
We will look at effective strategies to optimise the tax function through key enablers, to strategically and comprehensively transform itself to deliver incremental value, while simultaneously reducing tax risk to the organisation.
