A new tax structuring landscape is rapidly forming as more and more countries adopt the OECD’s recommendations following the issue of the final BEPS reports. With changes proposed to ‘hybrid’ tax arrangements, tax treaties, and the deductibility of intercompany payments, the substance and motive of structures face increasing scrutiny. DFS’s tax professionals are experts in this area and can help your company review its existing structures, and plan new structures, to ensure they align with the changes and are BEPS proof. As a global service provider, DFS provides a full suite of tax structuring and cross-border tax services, which include the following:
DFS’s highly experienced tax structuring group not only considers all the angles from a local, regional, and global perspective, but also tailors the tax efficient planning with your key commercial considerations in mind. It is this attention to detail and listening to our clients that often separates DFS from its competitors, in addition to our five values below:
