Benefits for the client
- You will have your own tax executive who forms an integral (long-term) part of your organisation for one or more (fixed) days a week, a month or for a specific project. We offer a solution for organisations that do not (yet) need a full-time tax manager, but would like more permanent, but flexible support in the area of tax.
Better and objective insight into tax risks and opportunities within your organisation and more proactive handling of tax issues. Our tax executives handle all the company’s tax affairs, leaving the client more time to deal with other important matters.
Many companies or business units that do not have their own tax manager rely almost completely on external tax consultants. The problem is that these cannot provide the desired hands-on attention in a cost-effective way. External consultants usually do not know the organisation and the environment well enough and they do not know the people and systems closely enough to be able give advice on tax risks and opportunities with maximum added value.
In these companies, the tax position is usually handled by a number of different departments and individuals, who do not necessarily have the right expertise and training, and often lack motivation, true ownership (from idea to full implementation), and real insight. As such companies grow, the complexity of taxation and often also the costs of external advice rapidly increase.
In many cases the companies do not yet hire a full-time tax manager, although there is clearly a need for more long-term support. Companies that do have a tax affairs department may also often require flexible expertise on a particular country or focus area. The Interim Tax Network can fill this gap by offering clients flexible but long-term in-house tax services.
More comprehensive services in the area of tax management through active knowledge sharing and establishing best practices within our network.
Interim tax managers are usually self-employed. The Interim Tax Network offers its clients more substantial services by (confidentially) sharing knowledge across the network and so exploiting the expertise of the whole network. Concretely, the partners in the network exchange knowledge, collaborate on standardised recommendations, (implementation) plans, models and checklists. Through our network we facilitate ongoing internal (tax) training and soft skills. For the sake of efficiency we use smart ICT solutions to handle our dossiers, but the expertise and quality of the people is always the bottom line.
Our network of tax managers is trained in internationally operating consultancy firms and companies and is affiliated with the Dutch Association of Tax Advisers (NOB). All partners are self-employed, ambitious, committed and used to work in different teams with distinct cultures and to strict deadlines.
Greater continuity in services due to mutual substitution.
The distinctive benefit of engaging The Interim Tax Network is that the affiliated tax executives use each other’s expertise in order to provide the best possible tax support and must be able to substitute for one another for clients if necessary, or provide back-up when someone is ill. This may be useful when the requirement for a specific project changes or a project demands more time.
Save on external consultancy costs with clear price agreements for our services.
The Interim Tax Network works on the basis of a fixed agreed effort in terms of part-days at a fixed rate. We periodically discuss our focus areas and efforts with the client based on a plan of action. This ensures a balanced division of work throughout the year and transparency in terms of costs. In consultation it is always possible to request additional capacity where needed due to growth or special circumstances.
