“…The Financial Services sector plays a critical role in any modern economy. The bundle of institutions that make up an economy’s financial system can be seen as ‘the brain of the economy’, providing the bulk of the economy’s need for many functions…” (WTO, 2021)
The importance of the Financial Services sector, its value creation and value exchange stirs the interest of tax authorities on a worldwide basis. Thereof, the global macro tax environment is fraught with a plethora of tax rules. The multi-faceted landscape of the (regulated) Financial Services industry is marked by the requirement for efficiency and effectiveness of tax functions, which receive increasing attention, especially in case of significant cross-border activity. Market participants have to be able to interrogate, consolidate and transmit huge amounts of sensitive data quickly, easily and in a secure and auditable form, to tax authorities and customers.
Governments are pushing Financial Services organizations to take a central role in policing their clients' tax compliance and transparency, often jurisdiction specific. The suitability of current structures, products and services has to be examined in the new light of the constantly evolving international tax landscape.
Last but not least, tax constitutes an integral value component of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) considerations in financial markets, which gain increasing attention of investors as well as in the political and media spotlight.
