Sanjay Mehta Quoted in Global Finance on Multinational Tax Strategies

Firm News | January 17, 2018

Sanjay Mehta, Tax partner, was quoted in Global Finance magazine regarding the challenges facing multinationals in managing their tax affairs in the current climate. Sanjay commented that, "Multinationals can employ a variety of strategies, usually based on optimizing reliefs, deductions, exemptions and tax rates made available by national tax laws, as well as securing relief under applicable international agreements (such as double-tax treaties and EU directives). These strategies can involve arrangements ranging from the simple to the complex." Sanjay added that public companies' audit committees increasingly focus on reputational risk and whether specific tax strategies are defensible. "Most multinationals prefer an effective tax rate that derives from sensible planning, and is therefore stable and predictable, over one that fluctuates as potential tax savings from aggressive structures are clawed back by tax authorities."
