FTI Consulting provides corporate tax advisory services to multinational businesses ranging from tax compliance and transaction support to best practice process implementation and structuring.

The Tax Technology Advisory Services offering will enable FTI Consulting to provide end-to-end advice on the tax technology spectrum.

Being able to offer our clients the advice they need to respond to these regulatory changes is hugely important. However, it shouldn’t just be about the tax authorities. Tax technology will also allow our clients to improve their tax processes — reducing risk, increasing efficiency and providing greater control over tax data and processes.”
