In case you are involved in an anti-corruption case, can you still be 100% tax compliant?

January 12, 20220

The news media frequently concentrates its attention on compliance issues that are not directly related to taxes, but might nevertheless have a major impact on taxes. Traditionally, tax risk management focuses on tax-related risks. Good tax risk management is expected to identify tax-related risk issues on time. This seminar will use case studies to illustrate what good tax risk management means. It is not only about fraud risks that may arise within the organisation (or at suppliers/customers/government level), but also about detecting other risks which may lead to tax-related issues.

Topics to be covered are:

  • The requirements for an adequate tax risk assessment are viewed as a part of organisation-wide risk monitoring, management, and assessment.
  • Case studies where compliance issues outside the tax domain have an impact on tax, i.e; like Rolls Royce and the government of Mozambique involved in anti-corruption cases including serious tax consequences.
  • Relationship of the tax function in a company with the finance function.
  • Identification and assessment of changes that could impact tax control.
  • The importance of monitoring in an increasingly data-driven world of taxation.
  • And how the world of “tax risk management” becomes the world of “tax data analysis” or “forensic accounting”.

We will use the examples to discuss the crucial elements for identifying potential events of interest and will take into account the company’s strategy and its risk appetite.
