Helping you navigate complex tax environments

    How does Effective Tax Rate Modelling work?

    ETR Analyser can provide a view of cash tax and ETR at the country level, entity level, activity level, and even product level. This more granular view bridges the commercial view to a detailed tax view. This granular ETR modelling allows you to understand an organisation’s value chain to drive effective tax reform planning and operating model transformations.

    Calculates the effective tax rate and cash tax rate taking into account transfer pricing and tax attributes, such as losses and restrictions on interest deductibility, both at a group level and for individual countries and entities

    Leverages data obtained e.g. forecasts, understanding of the operating model and existing tax attributes

    Compares multiple scenarios to assist in determining an optimised operating model

    Quantifies value created from a tax perspective, specifically deferred tax assets that can be used in negotiations, taking into account commercial value creation initiatives

    May be used pre-deal to understand and address areas of risk in the operating model, including e.g. withholding tax on interest and dividends
