The tax controversy environment is evolving with an increase in transfer pricing cases globally, an ongoing rewrite of global tax rules under BEPS 2.0 and digital advancements, including digital audits and cross-border information exchange.

The number of audits, appeals and tax cases is constantly growing and is only likely to get worse after the OECD concludes its work on rewriting the global tax rules to fit the digital economy.

With the wider market expecting more tax disputes in the next few years, many tax professionals would like to know how their peers are approaching tax risk management. Some businesses and authorities have suggestions for what an ideal tax dispute mechanism may look like following the OECD’s digital tax reforms, but ideals do not often translate into reality.

As part of the summer theme of tax controversy and dispute management, ITR intends to find out how the tax community is maintaining tax certainty in a rapidly changing global tax environment.

Take our survey before it closes on June 1 and we will share the results in our summer issue of the ITR magazine. Click here to take the survey.
