Tax on the Board Agenda
Hosted by Taxand France, this year's Taxand Global Conference took place at the Intercontinental in Paris, from the 27th to the 29th April. Nearly 200 Taxand clients attended alongside over 280 Taxanders. The key message from clients and Taxanders alike this year was: tax needs to be firmly placed on the Board's agenda. As governments worldwide use tax rates and scrutiny to manage the impact of the global economic meltdown, tax implications must be considered when making any commercial decisions. Tax professionals need to be business advisors as well as tax advisors to help Boards deliver shareholder return at the same time as managing the impact of this change. Taxand will do our utmost to influence this shift in the year ahead. What's more we launched our first Taxand global survey.
