Job Description
With constant legislative, regulatory and judicial changes, companies operating across borders are challenged to follow and comprehend ever-changing developments. At the same time, globalization, economic realities, operational adjustments, and corporate mandates require tax departments to adjust and adapt their internal initiatives to a changing business environment. The combination of these equally important streams requires tax departments to be agile, well-versed in internal and external developments, and able to deal with competing goals and interests. Understanding the tax impact on business operations and transactions across jurisdictions is vital to the success of any multinational corporation today.
