ZURICH, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RepRisk, the leading provider of dynamic business intelligence on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) risks, has released a special report on tax optimization, which includes three case studies from the sectors most associated with the practice: Technology, Retail, and Support Services (consultancy).
Tax optimization - also referred to as tax avoidance - is a practice that, although not illegal, is often deemed unethical, as paying taxes in the countries where a company operates is seen as the responsible thing to do.
Companies that use legal loopholes, tax inversions, and overseas tax havens to avoid paying tax can face reputational risks, as they are perceived to be denying governments and the societies in which they operate the necessary funds to provide education, healthcare, and infrastructure.
The aim of the report is to provide transparency and to highlight those companies that may face reputational risk as a result of their tax policies.
