Tax risk and transparency

The new tax world is full of choices. Whatever your risk appetite is, one has to decide how transparent one wants to be on tax affairs to the tax authorities and in the public domain.

Transparency to tax authorities can accelerate clarity is on contingent issues and reduce uncertain tax positions but 

positions may crystallize before the statute of limitation kicks in. 

Public transparency can help to improve your companies social standing on corporate responsibility. Some companies limit themselves to the transparency required by law, such as sharing a Country-by-Country Report and DAC6 with the tax authorities. Others publish their tax strategy online.

Whatever, you decide, many (equity) investors appreciate transparency if it helps to increase the reputation of the company.
