VO: Tax departments are taking flight. After several major corporations moved their tax professionals -- and their work -- to accounting firms, a wave of companies are exploring these “lift outs.”

Brad Brown soundbite: In the last year, over 100 companies have come to us to rethink the future of their tax departments.

VO: But getting rid of the whole department can be shortsighted.

Brad Brown soundbite: We advise taking a more surgical approach. Look for pockets that are inefficient and leverage our significant investment in technology platforms.
