Inside Indirect Tax

A monthly publication featuring global indirect tax updates from around the world.


KPMG knows how important it is to stay current on global indirect tax developments, especially in countries where you currently do business or are looking to expand. That's why we developed Inside Indirect Tax: Global Updates from a U.S. Perspective.

Focusing on major indirect tax developments beyond U.S. borders, Inside Indirect Tax is designed for U.S.-headquartered tax professionals whose companies do business outside the United States.
