Mazars is uniquely positioned to provide bespoke advice in all areas of taxation, helping our clients make properly informed decisions about their tax position in the following areas:

International Tax

The international tax landscape has been fundamentally reshaped by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project, the European Union and the United Nations’ work in the last four years and the pace of complexity of changes continues to increase in the future. Businesses with a global footprint have to comply with an ever-growing number of tax reporting obligations, re-evaluate their financing and operational structures, assess their tax strategy, undertake a BEPS risk analysis, re-visit their existing transfer pricing policy, all with the ultimate aim of developing a sustainable tax framework.

Mazars’ dedicated international tax professionals, all over the world, offer services on all aspects of cross-border transactions that helps companies manage the complexities of multiple tax systems, EU regulations and  align their tax strategies to their business. A global network of Mazars’ tax experts can provide a comprehensive range of inbound and outbound tax services. Mazars’ experts will guide businesses through cross-border expansion, acquisitions, mergers, demergers, post-merger integration and joint ventures in order to achieve the most tax-efficient structuring and manage their overall tax burden.

Corporate Structures

In light of BREXIT, US tax reform and changes introduced by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project, businesses are concerned about risk of tax nexus and require an integrated, global approach and access to coordinated advice.

Mazars’ tax professionals assist businesses in navigating an evolving business environment and support their long-term strategy. We advise you in designing, coordinating and implementing restructuring transactions focusing on tax priorities and achieving overall tax efficiency and specific transaction objectives.

Mazars’ corporate restructuring tax team is a part of a network of professionals which combines a global understanding and deal experience with local knowledge of tax jurisdictions. Our experts are dedicated and passionate about guiding businesses through a broad range of transactions including restructuring, expansion, divestment, IPOs, group reorganisations, financial restructurings and strategic alliances.

International Tax Accounting & Compliance

International operating companies are often confronted with taxes and with the tightened reporting duties involved in this. In the consolidated and stand-alone annual accounts you draw up, this results in a ‘tax position’. The tax position is calculated through the interaction of IT systems, external accounting standards and tax regulations, which are subject to continuous change. Are you absolutely certain that all taxes are properly withheld and duly paid? And do you process these taxes without any tax and financial risks? The Mazars advisers can assist you with your international accounting activities.

Preparing foreign tax returns in cross-border activities can be a burden as you are facing various foreign tax formalities and reporting obligations; obligations in terms of payroll, sales and income tax. Foreign companies carrying out activities abroad also have to consider latest regulations, local rules and compliance issues and this can become a burden. And how do you ensure that you effectively comply with these obligations and duties? Local and global compliance requires more oversight and control over all compliance activities to minimize risks and increase efficiency. Mazars can help you setting up an integrated (global) approach for compliance services.
