For cross-border insurers, navigating the complex insurance tax landscape across multiple jurisdictions can feel overwhelming.

Tax authorities continue to take measures to boost revenues, increase efficiency and reduce fraud.  There’s a notable shift towards digital insurance premium tax (IPT) reporting, placing an additional burden on insurers.
