Global Compliance Services


Many companies are rethinking their approach to domestic and global compliance and reporting by taking a closer look at their technology, processes, resources, and service providers. Multinational organisations are looking for a more coordinated, cross-border service. PwC’s global network offers a holistic, integrated, end-to-end compliance solution -  corporate income tax, indirect tax, statutory financial statements, and corporate secretarial services that use innovative technology, enabling you to get in front of your tax compliance needs.

In a broad sense, we help our clients to:

  • understand and comply with legal and regulatory obligations for taxation and exchange controls, where applicable;
  • plan their business affairs to be tax efficient, as well as other financial decisions they are required to make;
  • understand the tax risks they are facing and the effectiveness of their organisation’s internal controls relating to tax; and
  • help resolve tax disputes through local law and/or treaty-based dispute resolution mechanisms.

Withholding Tax

We can assist you to prepare and submit the interest /dividends /royalty and withholding tax returns.

Since withholding tax requirements can vary considerably across territories and the numbers of filings in some instances are determined by the timing and nature of transactions, we will work with you to identify the relevant filing obligations.

Value-Added Tax (VAT) Compliance

We can ease your burden by managing the preparation and filing of VAT returns and corresponding with the tax authority so that you can focus on your business.

We offer you a wide range of VAT compliance services from VAT registrations, completion and filing of VAT returns, including but not limited to dealing with SARS queries and objections. Our team, together with our global network, will elevate your routine VAT compliance efforts to a higher level to enable you to make sound business decisions and to reduce your administrative efforts.
