What is Tax?
Tax impacts our lives and society in more ways than you’d ever imagine. Our Tax experts are doing more than just advising individuals and businesses, they’re making a meaningful difference to society, by helping to solve some of the biggest challenges facing our country.
The scale and breadth of tax implications is so wide-reaching, and at the same time, new regulations mean that this landscape is becoming increasingly complex. Our tax services span company-focused areas such as International Tax, Deal Advisory Tax, Transfer Pricing and Indirect Tax as well as people-focused services, including Private Client Advice, Employment Taxes and Global Mobility Services. We’re also helping to digitise the tax system - some of the world’s biggest tech companies choose KPMG’s Tax services, because of our tech solutions.
