How tax functions are navigating continuous strategic and tactical challenges
No matter their sector, market or tenure, all tax function leaders know that in this business, change is constant. But today’s changes— and the ones just around the corner—feel different.
Familiar disruptors have not gone away. Regulatory, technological, economic, and social shifts continue to drive the tax agenda and challenge the operational status quo. Tax leaders are finding themselves now reacting to less familiar disruptors—the long-term impacts of the pandemic, complex geopolitical tensions, and emerging environmental, social, and governance (ESG) mandates, to name a few.
KPMG launched the Global Tax Function Benchmarking Survey to find out how corporate tax departments across industries and around the world are adapting to this environment of continuous disruption.
The chief finding, spanning all survey topics: Global tax functions are no stranger to change—or the exploration that comes with it.
