How Does Your Tax Team Compare?
I am delighted to announce that we have arranged a meeting to discuss practical approaches to aligning a tax function with the business. This is an excellent opportunity to exchange views and engage in some positive discussion. We will be joined by Roy Millman and Michael Woodman of Affecton, a new team of experienced consultants committed to delivering tax effective change.
Tax Function Survey
Affecton is carrying out a survey of the tax functions of UK businesses, the interim results of which will be reported at the meeting. The survey has been designed to uncover :-
Critical success factors in the management of the tax function, and
Best practice in the vital relationship between tax and the rest of the business
How a tax function is structured, funded and managed has a huge impact on the value it can deliver to the business. How the business perceives, supports and interacts with the tax function is also highly significant.
Participation in the survey will enable the tax team to benchmark key elements of the tax function and gain awareness of its position within the business relative to other tax functions in similar organisations. To participate in the survey, please register at www.affecton.com.
