Our Client 

A company who supply specialist personnel in the oil and gas and renewables industry. The company had grown significantly through organic contract wins and was having some challenges in managing their tax affairs in overseas territories. 

Our Approach 

  • Worked with the company to put in place a process so that when tendering for overseas opportunities, their team knew to come to AAB for tax support so that overseas taxes could be built into the tender price 
  • Supported the company to ensure that when a contract was secured, overseas tax compliance is then put in place from an early stage 
  • Reviewed the locations where personnel were currently being supplied and supported the company in putting in place the necessary tax compliance processes, using local partners overseas where necessary 

The Outcome 

  • Contracts are now properly priced, factoring in overseas tax and compliance costs – there are no more surprise tax liabilities that can erode expected profit margins 
  • Ensuring compliance means that the company now avoids interest and penalty charges from tax compliance failures overseas 
  • If there is a diligence undertaken on the business in the future for sale or investment, the Shareholders can be comfortable that overseas tax liabilities will not become an issue in the diligence checks
