Tax uncertainty is an ongoing risk problem for all companies. The ability to mitigate this risk is easier than most companies think. TRM™ has spent years developing, implementing, and supporting comprehensive tax risk management systems in businesses. TRM™ applies a set of universal tax principles that allow corporations to identify and manage tax risks effectively, with documented results.
Often, TRM™ participates as an objective outside consultant to guide tax personnel, in their respective divisions, with existing tax advisor(s), to execute a company’s Tax Risk Management Strategic Plan in a streamlined and united way.
In recent years TRM™ has served taxpayers whose collective issued Revenue Service Assessments tallied an astounding just under R4bn. With the direct involvement of TRM™, this collective figure was settled for less than 3% (on average) across these taxpayers, with a number of them having settled for 0%, with most settled out of court successfully.
