The fourth annual CTO survey examines the challenges and opportunities facing tax functions today and tomorrow.
Economic uncertainty. Shifting global regulations. Geopolitical tension. Commitment to sustainability and social responsibility. Accelerating digitization. New work environments.
To varying extents, reacting to changes in the broad spheres of geopolitics and economics, supply chain and operations, corporate citizenship and ESG, talent and workforce, technology and data, and M&A and corporate development are all now part of the Chief Tax Officer (CTO) mandate.
The 2023 CTO Survey finds tax departments facing significant risks, and CTOs expecting this to continue in the future. With changes affecting tax rapid and unrelenting, tax department transformation is essential. Staying still is not an option. But neither is racing full speed ahead, which so often leads to dead ends.
In today’s quickly evolving and increasingly complex tax environment, with a wave of tax changes potentially on the horizon, tax leaders must make their functions more efficient, accurate, and future-ready.
