In response to the recent trend for the incorporation of environmental, social and governance (ESG) impact criteria in the strategies of organizations, we have complemented the Firm's Tax practice in order to provide our clients with the necessary tools to make informed decisions regarding ESG, specifically in terms of tax risks.
As part of our tax due diligence processes, we have implemented the review of the activities assigned to those responsible for the tax function of organizations, the implementation of policies for the management, valuation and disclosure of tax risks, and the assessment with respect to the tax risk appetite of companies, all of this understood within the context of tax compliance.
