Case studies

GTS helps navigate post-Brexit supply chains

A key client needed urgent restructuring of their European operations to address potential supply chain impacts resulting from Brexit — amid significant uncertainty and complexity for their operations.

Baker Tilly GTS was able to act as the conduit for this complex, evolving challenge, navigating both logistical and trade requirements between the UK and more than 15 EU countries. Our UK-based GTS team was the central coordinator for the project, communicating key requirements to other members of the project team, and ensuring efficient, high-quality delivery from local specialists in line with the urgent scope.

Our approach ensured timely, detailed and consistent advice on tax legislation across more than a dozen jurisdictions, with scheduled briefings for the client, daily progress report and devolved engagements where needed to ensure an efficient conclusion in a challenging timeframe.

Transfer pricing feasibility study

Baker Tilly Global Tax Solutions assisted one of its global clients in assessing the reasonableness of management charges to its overseas entities.
The existing Transfer Pricing policy remunerated the local entities on a cost-plus mark-up that had resulted in a disproportionate profit allocation with corresponding losses in the parent entity and a relatively high effective tax rate for the group.

In our efforts to determine the appropriate margins to be retained by the local entities, we had to fully understand the functions (i.e., key activities performed, assets owned and maintained, and the risk profiles) carried out by the parent entity and the local entities.

Our analysis included an assessment of the appropriate transfer pricing methodology to be adopted, and the strategy for the transfer pricing benchmarking search process moving forward with a view to reducing the effective tax rate for the group as a whole, to an appropriate level.

Applying robotics to streamline tax accounting

Baker Tilly Global Tax Solutions assisted a Fortune 500 global client with its annual Tax Provision exercise across various entities globally within a short timeframe.

Following this exercise, we recommended process enhancements that aligned with the client’s expectations. We later identified the potential to implement an Robotic process automation system within the process to improve the level of information gathered, resulting in a reduced time cost and lower risk of human errors whilst increasing the focus on reviewing and completing the returns in a timelier basis.

Due to the increase in the demand for such services, we believe that RPA tools are a highly valuable asset not only for the Baker Tilly Global Tax Solutions team, but also for the global clients we serve within the Baker Tilly network.
