At Hansuke, we are at the forefront of the emergent tax agenda for financial institutions. Our services range from traditional tax compliance through to tax advisory. Irrespective of an assignment’s nature, our clients benefit from the depth of our technical tax expertise, combined with our real-world commercial experience. This fusion of technical and practical approaches enables us to deliver pragmatic, implementable solutions.
For financial firms, the emergent tax transparency regimes have made taxation a 'top of the agenda' item for boards of directors. Whilst some may settle to meet the minimum requirements of regulatory demands, more enlightened boards take positive steps to articulate their Tax Strategy and Tax Risk Appetite. These in turn are supported by proper tax governance frameworks designed to align company culture and behaviour with the stated board-approved tax policies.
In a complex and tax-uncertain world, Hansuke is helping leading financial firms make sense of the new tax agenda and steer their own course aligned with their values, mission and the expectations of their key stakeholders. We offer a wide range of specialised and niche tax solutions to assist financial firms in making important strategic decisions.
Our FS training academy, Hansuke Gakkō comes from the Japanese word for ‘school’, encapsulating our ethos of perpetual learning and skill acquisition, as well as the accumulation of knowledge through practice.
We provide FS-focused, specialist training programmes and bespoke workshops to ensure clients are well-equipped to implement effectual operational and governance practices.
