Knowledge Integration Seminar: Running a Tax Department for a big Canadian Bank
Running a Tax Department for a big Canadian Bank: an interesting and multidisciplinary challenge
Speaker: Peter van Dijk, Senior Vice President, Tax, TD Bank Group
In my presentation, I will try to give you a flavor for what it is like to work in a tax department of a big Canadian bank with large operations outside Canada. I will spend time talking about topics like:
- What does the tax department do - hint: it is a lot more than filing tax returns...
- What kind of people work in the tax department - education, experience, etc.
- Who does the tax department interact with inside and outside the bank - business units, corporate departments, regulators, tax authorities, governments, OECD, etc.
- What are the big tax issues that I worry about - think tax risk, reputational risk, changing tax laws and politicians who don't understand the impact of tax on business activity, jobs and the economy
After my presentation, you will understand that running a tax department of a big Canadian bank is an interesting and multidisciplinary challenge ... it is definitely not boring ... it is fun … and it definitely requires knowledge integration!
