Bueno! KPMG Begins International Tax Centers
KPMG is embarking on a new effort to serve clients on a global basis by implementing new U.S.-based tax centers.
Called 'International Tax Centers of Excellence,' efforts are already underway to serve clients in Latin America, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, and Spain, and plans are in teh works to include the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and France.
Speaking the language and understanding cultural issues are key in this new venture. As an example, the Americas Center will serve as a tax resource to clients who are doing business in Latin America. Competencies include tax-related skills among bilingual and bicultural professionals.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
