Make sure your tax structure is working for you.

Whether your business is only just thinking about venturing into international markets or you’ve had a presence offshore for some time, the importance of having the right tax structure cannot be underestimated.

While it’s enticing to move quickly to capitalise on international growth opportunities in today’s global marketplace, some companies can lose sight of the benefits that a well-planned international taxation approach can bring. In fact, for some it can be the difference between achieving future offshore growth or having to return home.

If your planned expansion or global footprint gives rise to a tax presence in one or more overseas countries, you need to proactively manage your tax obligations so they don’t prove to be a barrier to future growth.
