Job Description
As competition increases across the globe, today's companies expect greater efficiency and accuracy from their suppliers.

Running afoul of such laws could cause these companies to incur unnecessary indirect tax costs, slowing their supply chains, increasing order completion time, and incurring other import and/or export risks related to non-compliance.

PwC's Customs & International Trade team helps clients address the complexities of international trade, customs, and indirect taxes and works with them to develop cost-effective strategies, efficient and effective compliance programs, and business processes that keep important supply chains running smoothly. The group teams with PwC's international tax, transfer pricing, M&A, and assurance professionals to deliver fully integrated solutions designed to decrease

indirect tax costs and risks to their clients.
