Join this Responsible Investor webinar on how corporate tax reporting practices are evolving and why it matters.

As governments are rewriting the international rulebook on corporate taxation, companies’ tax practices are coming under increasing scrutiny from regulators and other stakeholders. Companies employing aggressive tax practices such as profit shifting could be exposing themselves to growing regulatory and reputational risks, which have the potential to directly impact their profitability.

Investors too are increasingly focused on the financial, regulatory and reputational risks associated with poor tax practices at their investee companies. However, disclosure limitations remain a significant roadblock to measuring and managing tax risks across portfolios and factoring them into investment decisions.
