Tax Management Services For A U.S.-based Multinational Company
Source: Deloitte LLP
A U.S.-based multinational company was looking to bring about a transformation within its global finance processes, systems and information resources in order to become more efficient in the regions where it operates. At the same time, it recognized that its tax function is one of the largest end-users of the accounting and finance information produced by global finance. Hence, it would have to integrate the tax perspective into the transformation effort from the outset of the project. This cross-functional project required a tested yet flexible approach to tackling significant issues affecting tax, accounting, technology, security and controls on a global scale. To achieve its goals, this multinational company sought assistance from Deloitte, a leading business management and consulting solutions provider. Deloitte worked in close association with this company in order to better implement the initiatives that the company had planned. It deployed a team of talented professionals to lead the tax-related aspects of the project to successful outcomes. Deloitte applied its Enterprise Value Delivery (EVD) methodology to guide the tax portion of a finance transformation. EVD is supported by an extensive set of tax-related deliverables ? from tax-scoping documents to tax data blueprints and functional requirements ? and is designed to be the foundation of the initiative from the outset. The methodology's activities and deliverables helped the client's tax team become tightly integrated with the other project areas. In addition, it also assisted the company in redesigning the tax organization so as to align it closely with the company's global operations and future expansion plans.
