EY Tax alert

Report on recent US international tax developments. The United States (US) Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on 4 June issued a news release (IR-2018-131) announcing that certain late-payment penalties relating to the Internal Revenue Code Section 965 repatriation transition tax will be waived, and providing additional information for individuals subject to the transition tax regarding the due date for relevant elections. The relief is explained in three new FAQs posted on the IRS’ tax reform page, supplementing 14 existing questions and answers that provide details on reporting and paying the tax.

The IRS announced that, in some cases, the IRS will waive estimated tax penalties for taxpayers subject to the transition tax who improperly attempted to apply a 2017 calculated overpayment to their 2018 estimated tax, if all required estimated tax payments are made by 15 June 2018. In addition, the IRS will waive the late payment penalty for individual taxpayers who missed the 18 April 2018 deadline, if the installment is paid in full by 15 April 2019. This relief is only available if the total transition tax liability is less than US$1 million.

Your Strategy Has to Be Flexible—But So Does Your Execution

GDYNIA 2017 stocznia Stena fot. Grzybowski

Peter Drucker said: “Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.” This and a slew of similar maxims reflect a common view of strategy execution: that it’s distinct from strategy, harder to pull off than defining a strategy, and therefore more critical to success—underpinned by seemingly indisputable virtues such as diligence, discipline, consistency, alignment, and focus. But such a simplistic view of execution can be misleading and can reduce actual impact.

In fact, several frequently observed traps result from such a view of execution.

Losing the Plot.

Metric Obsession.

Planning Myopia. 

Missed Learning Opportunities. 

The Tyranny of Intermediate Goals.

Missing the Forest for the Trees.

Execution as a Thing.

The Tyranny of Practicality.

We should not let the simplistic but comforting dualism of strategy and execution deceive us. Execution should be as varied, as thoughtful, as subtle, as diverse, and as intertwined with strategy as is necessary to get the job done, and that will vary according to the specific challenge at hand. In short, your execution needs a strategy.
