Together with the ITX team, Marc can explain the relevance of any changes to the IT environment specifically from a tax perspective, singling out particular areas of impact and making sure that tax doesn’t become a cost above the line (EBIT).

As part of an international network, Marc is ideally placed to understand and explain the impact of tax regimes in different countries on your business, and draw your attention should these regimes develop in a way that affects you. Marc’s team has developed its own solutions to cover specific topics, such as VAT determination software, filing VAT returns in multiple countries, VAT & Customs Data Analytics tool and more. Also is making the link with Data Extraction for other taxes like transfer pricing.
