Radnor, Pa.-based Global Tax Management, Inc. (GTM) is expanding its SALT practice. As part of that initiative, the company recently hired Chau Tran to lead the firm’s direct tax services for its SALT practice. In this role, Tran is actively engaged with multistate clients to perform tax planning, audit assistance, tax accounting support, tax compliance services, tax return review, M&A support and project management.

“Chau’s 15+ years of state and local tax consulting experience with companies in the manufacturing, pharmaceutical and utilities industries make her an excellent fit to lead the direct tax area of our SALT practice,” says Dave Laurinaitis, GTM’s managing director. “Her specialization in income and incentives addresses a growing need among our clients. We are pleased to have Chau join GTM, as we continue to expand both our direct and indirect SALT capabilities and offerings for our clients.”

In addition to Tran, the indirect tax portion of GTM’s SALT practice, which focuses on sales and use tax, has added several new full-time employees to service a growing client base. GTM has seen rising demand for audit representation and refund services in response increased audit activity by state governments across the US. In addition to helping clients reduce assessments and identify overpayments, the SALT indirect tax team implements improved compliance processes, including enhanced use of technology, to avoid recurring assessments and overpayments.

GTM’s SALT practice provides tax departments and controllers with the consultative guidance, in-house tax technology expertise and ongoing support needed to manage tax responsibilities effectively. Comprehensive services cover both direct and indirect state and local taxes.
