“Ernst & Young LLP’s tax technology professionals advise clients around the world and writing for Global Tax Weekly is a great opportunity to share our insight and experience with professionals working in all types of business sectors,” said Channing Flynn, Partner, International Tax Services and Global Technology Industry Tax Leader, based in San Jose, Calif.

“It is critical that companies today understand that the adoption of new technologies may have a significant tax implication. As tax laws continue to evolve, companies are smart to consider how existing rules and best practices will impact their business strategy and tax obligations, and how relevant issues are trending around the world. For example, technology companies today often struggle to understand and control a range of potential tax liabilities associated with IP monetization, transfer pricing and R&D, among others issues, and are smart to consider the tax treatment of these events when business strategies are first developed. We look forward to the opportunity to provide insightful guidance on these issues to a larger audience on a regular basis,” said Flynn.

In addition to Flynn, regular E&Y contributors to Global Tax Weekly will include Beth Carr, Partner - International Tax Services; Stephen Bates, International Tax Partner; and Jonathan Cisler, Senior Manager - International Tax, all part of Ernst & Young LLP’s San Jose, Calif. office.

Ernst & Young LLP recently issued a report on the findings of an 11-country survey exploring tax considerations in cloud computing. An expanded survey covering more countries will be released in 2013.
