We have been very impressed with Ryan’s VAT recovery experience and skills.
We are known for our ability to find tax recovery opportunities for our clients and to aggressively fight for those dollars, ensuring that no issue or opportunity for tax minimisation is left unrealised. Last year alone, our multidisciplinary approach resulted in $2.5 billion in tax savings for our premier global clients.
Ryan manages the audit process from beginning to end, ensuring that we minimise our client’s burden to the fullest extent possible. Our professionals handle the arduous process of producing records for the state and securing files required to build the case, determining which issues merit an appeal and the likelihood of success for each. We manage the day-to-day information flow between our client and the taxing authority to ensure timely, complete, and accurate responses and assist with accelerated dispute resolution processes to reduce the costs and other burdens associated with audit defence activities. As needed, we meet with auditors, dispute resolution officers, administrative hearings attorneys, and other agents to clearly identify all positions that impact our client’s ability to achieve a favourable outcome.
We understand the importance of constructive relationships with taxing authorities. We also understand that respect is earned. From informal conferences to administrative level appeals, our goal is to resolve tax controversies quickly and professionally. And when disputes can’t be resolved through simple negotiation, we’re prepared to fight for our clients’ interests for as long as it takes. Our Audit Representation provides a comprehensive range of services, including:
- Audit coordination
- Audit review and opportunity assessment
- Audit sampling analysis and evaluation
- Controversies and appeals
- Responses for information and document requests
- Risk assessments
- Tax audit representation
- Tax compliance and reporting evaluation
- Taxability determinations
- Voluntary disclosure and registration
At Ryan, we don’t simply review our clients’ records for tax recovery and tax-saving opportunities; we scour them. We understand the complex environments in which our clients operate. We understand the unique provisions of the tax codes in the jurisdictions where they conduct business. We stay current with the latest rulings and changes in tax law as they apply to our clients’ businesses. And our efforts translate into significant tax savings and superior results for our clients. Simply put, our commitment to excellence and utilisation of sophisticated technology ensure that we’re more thorough, efficient, and effective than our competitors.
Ryan professionals target every possible tax refund and reduction opportunity for our clients. We commit every day to sifting through, drilling down, and peeling back the intricacies of federal, state, local and international tax to discover truly significant recovery opportunities. And we focus on reducing our clients’ tax liabilities with minimum disruption to their operations, requiring only limited effort from their personnel.
We go beyond the expected and look for the exceptions that benefit our clients. By reviewing the exact time periods and types of tax as our competitors, we produce substantial additional results. We’re at our best when following other, less focused firms. And our competition doesn’t bother to follow us. We know of no instance where any of our competitors have produced meaningful tax savings after our review was complete.Unmatched Results
