Tax risk management and managing disputes

Multinationals hebben regelmatig geschillen met de belastingdienst van één of meer landen. Internationale fiscale geschillen staan niet op zichzelf. Dat komt omdat een fiscale correctie in het ene land bijna altijd gevolgen heeft in het andere land.

Disputes with local tax authorities in one or more countries is a normal mode of operation for most multinational enterprises. Often tax disputes do not stand alone because a tax adjustment in one country may have consequences in another country. If one of the tax authorities claims that additional profit must be taxed in country A, then that profit should not also be taxed in country B. At KPMG Meijburg we can help with disputes and the corresponding tax risk management.

Tax risk management

As soon as a dispute arises the implications should be identified and all parties must work together with all the jurisdictions involved. For example, immediate action may have to be taken in more than one country to avoid deadlines for submitting notices of objections or appeals being missed. This means that corresponding adjustments cannot be made.
