Why corporate tax matters?

Corporate tax represents a substantial outflow of funds for most, if not all, businesses. This is not the only ‘cost’ tax places on business - tax planning, reporting obligations and keeping abreast of legislative change can be a significant drain on management time.
The increasingly pro-active approach of tax authorities can result in time-consuming reviews and audits, and significant penalties for non-compliance. All these factors put together can be a large tax burden on your business.
