Integrated Tax Lifecycle

Tax Lifecycle PROVISION & FINANCIAL STATEMENT AUDIT EXTENSIONS ESTIMATED TAX PAYMENTS TAX COMPLIANCE TAX AUTHORITY AUDITS & DEFENSE AMENDED TAX RETURNS TAX PLANNING & REPORTING BUDGETING & FORECASTING

PROVISION & FINANCIAL STATEMENT AUDIT

At the close of every year and quarter, companies recognize income tax expense or benefit in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification 740, Income Taxes (ASC 740). ASC 740 prescribes the methodology for the recognition, measurement and disclosure of income taxes.

EXTENSIONS

Due to the time constraints endured during the compressed tax accounting close, enterprises generally extend their tax compliance obligations to afford additional time to file income tax returns.

TAX COMPLIANCE

Companies prepare and file their annual income tax returns following a set of jurisdiction-based complex rules and regulations which are subject to ongoing change.

BUDGETING & FORECASTING

Due to the generally large cash outlays required during the tax year, tax obligations should be forecasted to ensure coordination with overall business operations.

TAX AUTHORITY AUDITS & DEFENSE

Tax returns are subject to the scrutiny of the various taxing jurisdictions in which a company operates or may be deemed operating.

TAX PLANNING & REPORTING

As one of the largest expenses on a company’s income statement, income tax planning is necessary to ensure obligations are met without sacrificing tax efficiency.

ESTIMATED TAX PAYMENTS

Companies need to comply with various federal, state, local and country specific rules and regulations to remit estimated tax payments periodically throughout the tax year.

AMENDED TAX RETURNS

Due to a multitude of factors, companies may be required to amend previously filed tax returns that may increase or decrease the amount of tax previously reported.
