Expanding overseas or investing in the UK? Our experienced International Tax Specialists can help you
As businesses become increasingly international in search of growth, they are confronted with many challenges. Tax is one of the key risks to be managed. Getting it wrong could mean entering into unprofitable contracts, financial penalties, trapped cash, due diligence challenges on a future exit and reputational damage. The OECD is currently leading a project to reform international tax principles and double taxation treaties and we will see real change in this area over the next 18 months.
We can help you through the life cycle of an overseas investment from choice of establishment vehicle, funding and annual compliance through to exit or sale.
Our International Tax Practice works with diverse clients across a wide range of industries to identify and manage the tax risks inherent in doing business overseas. So, while your finance team may feel it does not have the necessary expertise to confront complex international tax issues, our specialists are likely to have met them before.
