Description:

What are the latest tax issues that the board of directors should be aware of in relation to tax planning and tax risk management?  What are the latest tax issues that a tax practitioner needs to communicate to senior management?

 

Since the initiation of the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project in 2013, the international tax landscape has continued to evolve, with many jurisdictions amending their tax laws and practices to take into account BEPS measures. Under such an environment, tax planning, which remains important for businesses, can be significantly affected.

 

In this seminar, our speakers will share their insight on corporate tax planning in light of the latest tax developments. The discussions will cover an overview of various topics including:

 

l   Economic substance requirements

l   Transfer pricing

l   Tax treaties

l   BEPS 2.0

l   Tax incentives 

l   Indirect tax

l   Common pitfalls
