Global trends in corporate tax disclosure - an investor perspective

Presented by

Responsible Investor in partnership with FTSE Russell

About this talk

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. Against this backdrop, this webinar will discuss: -The recent research on trends in corporate tax disclosure globally, drawing on reporting from over 1,300 large listed companies in developed and emerging markets, comparing tax disclosures to those on other sustainability issues -The growing regulatory focus on corporate tax practices -The way in which investors are approaching tax transparency in their portfolio companies
