Gatehouse were approached by one of the largest global accountancy firms and requested to help them assess the direction, intent and likely future developments for corporate taxation around the world on behalf of the G20.
Gatehouse used its powerful network to convene a day long symposium on the nature and direction of global tax policy, bringing together representation from a broad array of national governments, a cross section of business sectors, civil society, academics and senior members of the OECD.
Gatehouse chaired the event and sought to gain a greater understanding of the challenges that corporations faced as they grappled with their ‘shareholder mandate’ (to provide the greatest value to their shareholders by legitimately and astutely managing their tax affairs) and their ‘social mandate’ (to pay the countries where they operate an amount in taxes commensurate with their profit).
The symposium successfully provided the client with their desired outcome as they gained a deeper understanding of the workings of regulatory bodies; learnt how likely a global agreement would be; and understood in more detail what the future meant for businesses and business practice.
