Tax services
Tax Services helps clients prepare for tomorrow
We support our clients as they assess and manage tax complexities, deal with their business realities and embrace innovative technology-enabled services.
Our tax-related services cover a wide range of domestic and global income and non-income tax compliance needs, as well as provide insight, analysis and execution.
The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the Wayfair decision, and other legislative, regulatory and judicial actions have recently introduced sweeping changes that touch every business, and many clients are still grappling with their impact.
For some, the new rules are prompting a fresh look at key decisions fundamental to their business model: entity choice, modernization of financial systems, international and supply chain changes, and the outsourcing of the tax function. And Grant Thornton Tax professionals have been there to guide these discussions with insights and analysis.
Every organization’s tax circumstances are unique. At Grant Thornton, tax innovation means crafting pragmatic, customized, scalable approaches utilizing disruptive technologies and best practices to unlock new value for our clients.
“Our professionals bring deep technical understanding together with the ability to put modern data tools and automation to work. That’s a powerful combination that enables our clients to understand and run their businesses better.”

audit services
Our Audit practice provides excellent quality alongside top-notch client service
Quality remains a fundamental principle in Audit Services.
Together with management oversight and proper governance, audit quality is a key component in instilling confidence in the capital markets. At Grant Thornton, we select technologies, design protocols and create best practices to advance our quality in order to provide the reasonable assurance required in the most efficient ways possible.
Additionally, our goal is to provide remarkable client service on each engagement — prioritizing clear communication, customizing the audit for each client’s unique business needs to identify risk and ensuring a positive experience in working with us. A “one size fits all” approach doesn’t apply here.
New technologies such as data analytics and artificial intelligence also help us streamline the auditing process, produce new insights out of our comprehensive data analysis and reach the answers clients need more quickly.
“Our firm’s culture sets our Audit professionals apart from the pack. Core values like strong teamwork, responsive support and a dedication to excellence make the difference for our clients.”
