|(課程編號0120) Tax Seminar: How to handle offshore claims in this ever-changing tax environment|
||Code 0120 (21 May 2020)|
Hong Kong has adopted the territorial principle of taxation for more than 70 years. Under such principle, it has long been established that only Hong Kong sourced profits are liable to tax in Hong Kong. However, with the recent changes in the global tax landscape and the enactment of the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (“BEPS”) and Transfer Pricing (“TP”) law in Hong Kong in July last year, the Inland Revenue Department (“IRD”) has been more closely scrutinising offshore claims on various types of income. In some cases, a "TP-oriented" approach is being adopted when examining the locality of profits and the taxpayers' "double non-taxation" status is being vigorously challenged.
In this seminar, we will cover the following areas:
- How the change in the global tax landscape affects the approach of IRD in handling offshore claims
- Best practice in dealing with enquiries and challenges on offshore claims from the IRD
- Precaution measures to prevent potential tax disputes on offshore claims in the future
- Real life case sharing
