Planning, implementation, and compliance

Knowledge is power in the international tax landscape. Frequent changes in tax regulations—notably today, the extensive international tax changes from the 2017 U.S. tax legislation (TCJA) and potential changes from the Biden administration's tax plans—and a complex global marketplace challenge companies to adapt and evolve to stay competitive and compliant.

With the right guidance, multinational companies can achieve success through careful planning and implementation with an enhanced methodology that meets wider business objectives and fosters growth on a global scale.

KPMG’s International Tax professionals provide the vast knowledge and practical experience to help companies looking to invest across borders for the first time or expand their existing international footprint. With a broad range of services and a thorough understanding of tax and trade regulations, our specialists deliver the essential technological and advisory support for multinational organizations.

We help with:

  • Global effective tax rate planning, including methodology and tools for incorporating the latest U.S. and global tax reform guidance
  • International tax planning for business change in areas such as intellectual property planning, cloud computing, cross-border mergers, acquisitions and dispositions, corporate reorganizations and internal group restructurings, and legal entity rationalization
  • Value chain management
  • Global capital structure planning, including efficient cross-border finance, repatriation, and cash access planning
  • International tax reporting and compliance, and global compliance management
  • International tax provision computation, compliance and assistance

Modeling the changing U.S. international tax legislative and regulatory landscape

KPMG international tax reform analyzer (ITRA) is an Excel-based tool that allows for extensive modeling of international tax rules—including those introduced by TCJA and the CARES Act, prior existing provisions, and Biden administration and Congressional tax plans—with support from experienced International Tax professionals to help tailor modeling and identify significant planning opportunities.

Streamlining Section 987 gain/(loss) calculations and tracking

Section 987 gain/(loss) calculations and related tracking of pools are complicated and time-consuming. The KPMG Section 987 Model helps clients understand the potential impact of Section 987 gain/(loss) transactions, support efficient tax return preparation, and make informed tax planning decisions. Outputs from the model can be used with ITRA, so client can take full advantage of ITRA's scenario planning capabilities.

KPMG Country-by-Country Risk Analyzer

As a result of the OECD BEPS project Action 13, which introduced country-by-country reporting, tax administrators now have a wealth of previously unavailable data to assess whether multinational companies are engaging in BEPS activities. The KPMG Country-by-Country Risk Analyzer evaluates potential risks in a company’s tax structure and uses interactive data visualizations to provide insights into risks and underlying factors.
