The Corporate Tax Practice in the Age of Transparency: A Path Forward

The corporate tax community is struggling to cope with the most complex and dynamic regulatory and reporting environment it has ever faced. Today's corporate tax practitioner faces multiple, rapidly changing regulatory regimes, as well as increasing external market demands and expectations. More than ever, tax practitioners must be able to translate complex matters of tax compliance, planning, administration, controversy resolution and legislative processes to a growing array of non-tax constituents: business and financial executives, board members, corporate general counsel, independent auditors, regulators, financial reporting standard-setting authorities, investment analysts and other stakeholders. Each day seems to bring a new layer of oversight, enforcement, and compliance, with the objective of enhancing the transparency and understanding of tax matters and tax decision-making processes.
