What factors are limiting the strategic influence of tax leaders in 2024?

The expectations placed on tax leaders have never been greater.

At the same time, the potential value that tax teams can provide has never been more significant.

An evolving business and tax landscape, chronic shortage of tax talent, the 2024 U.S. elections, and rapid technological innovation are dramatically amplifying the pressure placed on tax leaders. As a result, the 2024 BDO Tax Strategist Survey reveals that fewer tax leaders can consistently contribute strategic insights to the broader business.
