Addressing the tax agenda

EU Accounting Directive


From a world where tax transparency was voluntary, virtually every extractives sector business with an EU presence is now subject to mandatory project-by-project tax transparency.


Are you ready?


That does't just mean are you ready to comply with the rules. Are you ready to address the challenges that transparency brings in terms of stakeholder engagement? 


We can help, having been involved in these rules all the way from negotiations in Brussels to implementation into domestic law.


We have been directly involved in:


  • Negotiating the tax transparency rules in the new EU Accounting Directive and EU Transparency Directives
  • Working with UK government on adoption of these rules into UK law
  • Jointly authored the industry guidance on interpretation of these rules in practice
  • Advising business from FTSE100 downwards on tax transparency matters
