What is Taxand?
Taxand is a global organisation of over 2,000 tax advisors. Taxand covers nearly 50 countries. In each Taxand location one firm is invited to join Taxand. Each firm focuses on delivering high quality tax advice and does not undertake audit work. Taxand advisors work together to provide global tax services for clients.
Why is Taxand different?
Taxand is an organisation of independent member firms just like other professional services networks. But we're different for many reasons. We're dedicated to tax and we're passionate about it. We truly work together as an integrated global team. We are the only global organisation with high quality tax advice provision as its sole focus. Our firms compete to become the local Taxand advisors of choice. As a result Taxand advisors are uniquely motivated to work collaboratively, sharing knowledge and capitalising on our collective expertise to provide the highest quality, tailored advice. We're also independent-ensuring that our clients adhere both to best practice and to tax law and that we remain free from time-consuming audit-based conflict checks. This enables us to deliver practical advice, responsively.
Why is Taxand needed?
Business is global. Companies need cross border tax advice. Local tax knowledge alone cannot deliver. Only an organisation with global coverage can provide authoritative international tax advice. Tax is so complex now clients need dedicated experts to understand it. Pooling the leading independent tax firms gives clients the responsive service they seek.
Why does Taxand have to be independent?
We believe tax deserves first place. Too often tax advice is secondary to audit work. By focusing on tax we eradicate the need to undertake time-consuming audit-based conflict checks and our advice is based on what is right for our clients. Moreover by engaging Taxand, clients can be sure of adhering to best practice or law that dictates the use of separate tax advisors.
How can Taxand deliver integrated services?
We share common ground and we work well together. We have the same commitment to delivering high quality advice and client service. We are motivated by our unique passion to succeed. On every multinational engagement we allocate one central point of contact to manage integrated service provision. It works because of our compact structure.
How does Taxand operate?
We're managed on a day to day basis by a nine-member Board. Supporting the Board is a dedicated, central team focused on global marketing, business development, coordination and knowledge management activities. The Taxand Global Executive Committee,votes on all key strategic, operational and executive decisions and is comprised of one leading representative per country. Taxand Global service areas have dedicated teams which confer regularly to share technical knowledge and discuss multinational engagements.
How is the Taxand brand applied?
Taxanders blend our global brand with their local identity. Our logo:
is used alongside the local logo and our brand name is used, where possible, within the local identity, for example:
Taxand is a global brand that unites our leading tax advisors and is fast being seen as a stamp of credibility by our clients. Taxand stands for passion, pride, action, quality, energy and responsiveness.
Does a tax only business model work?
Yes. Tax complexities are extensive. Clients need advisors who understand tax and its strategic implications. By partnering with our clients' finance, legal, risk management and consultative teams we use our commercial acumen and tax expertise to help drive the performance of our client's business.
Why choose Taxand above the rest?
Our ability to deliver practical advice, fast. We understand the fine points of tax law and we interpret this knowledge into bespoke, action-orientated advice. We respond quickly because we can. Our independence means we are free from time-consuming audit-based conflict checks. We're also compact in structure, not burdened by bureaucratical or hierarchical barriers to speed. We're dedicated to tax and we're passionate about it. Taxanders compete to become the local Taxand firm of choice. As a result Taxand advisors are uniquely motivated to work collaboratively, sharing knowledge and capitalising on our collective expertise to provide the highest quality, tailored advice.
What are Taxand's plans for the future?
We've grown fast. In three years we've gone from nine locations to nearly 50. We are now in every key economy in the world. Further growth is inevitable. For the near future we are consolidating what we have built. Developing our global client relationships, expanding our global knowledge base and evolving our brand are all key objectives.
