Practice overview:

As the region gradually moves onto the new economic landscape post the pandemic, tax policy makers across Asia-Pacific are presented with opportunities to empower a robust and sustainable recovery by introducing financial incentives and technology-based tax audits into practice. Building a good relationship with tax authorities remains a focus area for many businesses given the complex tax regimes which present both challenges and opportunities.
