Customised tax compliance management
A functioning tax compliance management system is a key requirement for identifying the risks that are relevant for tax purposes; it also helps companies comply with tax laws or tax deadlines and ensures that the assessment basis is established correctly. Therefore it represents the main instrument for preventing liability and criminal law consequences for the company, its executive bodies and employees in the event that irregularities occur and subsequent tax payments are assessed.
The experts at LeitnerLeitner are ready to assist you with developing, implementing and evaluating such a system that is tailored to your needs.
Working with you, we ensure that your tax compliance management system not only optimises processes but also helps to avoid risks under tax and criminal law. A deep understanding of the business context and the financial requirements of our clients allows us to develop processes with added value on a partnership basis. This process is not just about declaring the correct amount of taxes, but also about identifying opportunities for efficient automation so that synergies in the company can be revealed or optimised. Using our expertise, we can assist you all the way to the certification of the tax control system, and we can also optimise existing systems if required.
