Tax Executives Council

The role of the senior corporate tax executive is increasingly more complex and challenging.  With responsibilities that go well beyond compliance and planning, having access to the insights and knowledge of peers can provide tremendous value.  The Council of Tax Executives was created to enhance the effectiveness of senior corporate tax leaders by convening a group of peer executives to address issues such as:

  • Recent and future legislative and administrative tax policy changes (including cross-border M&A transactions, base erosion and profit shifting, etc.)
  • Minimizing reputational and compliance risks in an uncertain global regulatory environment
  • Leveraging data, analytics and technology to generate strategic value from the tax department
  • Best practices related to tax department process optimization

Our meetings provide opportunities to share solutions in this challenging new world.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
