CEB Tax Leadership Council

We help members manage tax risks and planning opportunities, while minimizing the cost of tax compliance – which has been made increasingly difficult because of legislative changes, increasing disclosure requirements, rising audit activity, and increasing exposure to newer jurisdictions and their varying compliance requirements. Processes and activities we support include: improving the efficiency of tax accounting, provision, and forecasts; identifying and assessing tax risks; complying with emerging tax compliance issues; and implementing tax-driven process improvements.

Our Research Focus

Equipping our members with strategic guidance and tactical tools on the topics most important for their function is at the heart of what we do. We don't just point to where you need to go: we provide you with a roadmap and a suite of implementation tools to get you and your team there. Key topics include:

Department Design and Performance

Tax Risk Management and Planning

Compliance Life Cycle Management

Emerging Tax Issues (BEPS Action Plan)

BEPS Action Plan

Learn best practices for how Tax leaders create processes and controls ahead of BEPS legislation.

Improve the Tax Accounting Process

Tax teams are looking to automate the provision to improve both the speed and accuracy of the tax accounting process. But while automation can provide measurable efficiency gains, it’s hard to achieve those efficiencies if you don’t improve data and processes prior to the system implementation.
