With tax now recognised as a key risk and compliance issue in the boardroom, we together with the Irish Tax Institute, held an event for 150 directors in Dublin this morning on the subject of tax in the boardroom and the key considerations for directors.
Regardless of company size, directors, executive and non-executive, must be satisfied that proper systems and controls are in place for reporting payroll taxes, VAT and other corporate taxes, and many directors now have to make an annual statement in their Directors’ Report specifically acknowledging this responsibility in relation to tax. In addition we are also seeing a swathe of global tax changes coming from the EU and OECD.
The focus on tax has hugely intensified in the past 2-3 years and, with no prospect of this easing any time soon, company boards must be able to formulate and communicate their tax strategy to all stakeholders.
This event brought together tax expertise provided by the Irish Tax Institute along with a facilitated panel discussion with three experienced directors, providing a comprehensive overview and discussion of the issues involved.
