Tax risks under control

Tax risks under control

13 November 2012

Do you have problems with the design or implementation of your Tax Control Framework? Are the fiscal risks within your organization visible enough? Do the fiscal risks fit within the risk appetite of your organization?

The KEY Group can help you with the answers to these questions. The normative standard (to control the fiscal risks) is developed by us; we can give a quick and efficient insight in the degree of deviation of your current state. In the next step we decide – in close cooperation with you – to close the gaps or not.
