Energy tax

Energy tax

Energy is critical to our survival. Balancing supply and demand, sustainability, security risk, cost and the need to act responsibly while managing a tax efficient operation is challenging. Tax, legal and regulatory rules are increasingly complex and constantly changing. Taxand's global team of energy tax experts provide responsive, proactive cross-border tax advice to drive efficiency for your business.

Plan strategically, optimise your energy structures

Maintaining alignment between technology, business, policy and viability of alternative resources means the tax complexities associated with energy have become even more complex. Inadequate approaches to managing your tax burden can increase operating costs. With the energy industry being scrutinised by governments to meet climate change targets and by consumers tired of high charges and environmental disasters, managing reputation is essential to minimising financial loss. Our Taxand advisors will help you plan strategically and apply deep industry insight to establish efficient energy structures.
