Programme Synopsis

In the tax landscape of today, a company’s image can significantly be affected by its tax management. Voices from a gamut of stakeholders such as the media, governments, employees and interest groups may present various perspectives of an organisation’s tax affairs, advocating more public information and accountability. Tax transparency is the new name of the game. 
Buzzwords like ‘tax governance statements’ have crept into the vocabulary of senior management and boards of corporations. Now and ever more so, tax professionals have been pushed into the spotlight. Join in the upcoming webinar, to understand how the role of tax professionals have changed. 
The session, facilitated by Accredited Tax Advisor (Income Tax) Mr Brendan Egan, Tax Partner at PwC Singapore, looks into the tax transparency agenda and get in on the views and insights of what defines and drives the emergence of a tax transparency agenda. 
Come and understand how tax professionals can rise above the din and never-ending developments to be a vital personnel in the business strategy, from corporate social responsibility to collaboration and cooperation with tax authorities.
