"Poor communication on tax strategy can put companies at risk"

Tax and transparency is under more scrutiny than ever by politicians, regulators the media, civil society and investors.

CEOs tell us that tax issues are the top threat to business growth in today’s economy. And we expect tax to become a much bigger driver of companies' reputation and brand health.
