International Tax Survey Report 2018: Priorities and challenges facing multinationals

This international tax survey from Baker Tilly International was designed to assess: the impact of BEPS to date upon our multinational clients, how multinational businesses are reacting to a fast changing international tax arena, key tax uncertainties in an increasing globalised economy when political winds point toward de-globalisation and topics that directly impact their daily business.

This approach has been orchestrated to ensure the initiatives, efforts and focus in relation to products and services to our multinational clients accurately match our client’s needs, expectations, concerns and aspirations.

This survey has involved multinational clients in over 65 territories, assessing everything from BEPS preparations to reactions to US Tax Reform.

The main issues and global tax trends stemming from this international tax survey highlight that transfer pricing and permanent establishments remain the major concerns for multinational businesses. Plus that much more can be done to pro actively deal with a very fast paced tax environment.

In conclusion, managing key tax risks to ensure there are no surprises for multinational businesses has never been as complex and never been as important.
