Systems & Management

As a corporate tax executive for two Fortune 500 companies and a former chief tax officer, Jim has been responsible for the original structure of new tax departments and the review of existing departments.  He is available to consult on structural changes to alleviate existing pressure points and facilitate efficient operations, including:

  • Technical advice concerning system implementation
  • Management of multi-national tax planning and projects
  • Process review
  • Sarbanes-Oxley tax controls

Throughout the world there are many highly qualified tax practitioners with intimate knowledge of their home jurisdiction tax laws and they are critical to success.  In addressing cross border issues what is often missing is the knowledge and experience to coordinate local efforts, identify and resolve tax law conflicts, and manage the local experts to achieve the best result cost-efficiently.  Those efforts can be on individual projects or as an ongoing technical resource to your existing tax department on an ongoing basis. 

If you are implementing new systems, Jim can provide technical advice, tempered by practical experience in the implementation of tax compliance, sales order entry/sales tax, value added tax and other systems.  In addition, he can assist with the establishment and review of tax-related Sarbanes-Oxley controls.
