The IARP ranks, aggregates and groups the three tiers of IFI risk exposures. Managers and tax advisors can take considered action to mitigate exposure to risk factors, prepare for tax audits and organize defensive responses for potential mediation, arbitration or litigation of tax audit disputes.  

The IARP is a necessity for hedge funds, private equity firms, CTAs, RIAs, global multinationals and corporations utilizing offshore structures. The IARP is a critical resource for CFOs, CCOs, CROs and internal corporate counsel.     

Multinational corporations, company’s that utilize sophisticated structures, engage in innovative transactions, recognize and book revenue from diverse sources and employ sophisticated tax strategies will benefit from the use of the IARP.  

CPA firms and corporate tax attorneys with a focus on financial services and LMSB corporate tax practices will find the IARP an indispensable risk discovery and client engagement tool.

The IARP uses a scoring methodology to determine a funds exposure and level of preparedness to meet IFI audit risk factors. The IARP guides managers through a thorough IFI risk assessment.  The IARP helps managers formulate and initiate actions required to mitigate the threat of IFI risk exposures.   

The IARP identifies and calculates expenses associated with mitigation initiatives. The IARP helps managers to assign mitigation responsibilities to staff members or service providers and tracks any open issues.
