Deloitte Asia Pacific profile


Current trends suggest that multinational organisations will continue to spend more time and resources managing tax controversies in both their local and foreign markets. Tax authorities are sharing information about companies and are increasingly focusing on not only the technical merit of a tax position but also on its implementation.

Deloitte's tax controversy teams in the Asia-Pacific region include former tax authority officials, alternative dispute resolution specialists and, in many countries, tax litigation specialists who can assist multinational businesses at all phases of the tax controversy cycle.

Dedicated tax controversy professionals within the Deloitte network provide coverage across the region with a presence in all key markets.

Deloitte operates a global tax controversy group with leaders assigned across a number of countries. The leaders within the Asia-Pacific region are able to draw upon the connections within this community from all parts of the world, to deliver cross-border solutions in a coordinated and aligned manner.

This approach to dealing with the tax controversy-related problems of clients provides common methodologies and the development of technology-based tools used collaboratively across jurisdictions to enhance success for clients.

Deloitte in the Asia-Pacific region includes offices in more than 120 cities located across more than 20 countries, with in excess of 600 partners and 8,000 client service professionals, and forms part of one of the world's largest professional services firms, capable of drawing on multidisciplinary skills to deliver cross-border solutions to clients in local markets.
