Host: Robert Tsang
Presenters: Bruce Hamilton, Anthony Loh, Aili Nurk, and Jun Takahara
In November 2015, the OECD is planning to release the final agreed version of Indirect Tax guidelines on B2C transactions as part of an ongoing initiative to standardize international VAT/GST rules. Input has been sought not just from the tax authorities of the 34 member countries of the OECD (including Australia, Japan, Korea, and New Zealand in Asia Pacific), but also from a broad range of businesses and VAT/GST authorities of India, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and other countries in Asia Pacific. How might a standard set of international VAT/GST B2C rules play out locally across the region? How will the guidelines work and how might you and your business benefit? We'll discuss:
- What do the new consolidated guidelines contain, including how digital or electronically supplied services will be taxed – these indirect taxes should not be a burden to businesses, and can the consistent application of taxability and place of supply rules be achieved to eliminate double taxation?
- Highlights of the OECD Global Indirect Tax meeting in November 2015, including worldwide perspectives on implementing VAT/GST, designing efficient and equitable indirect tax systems, and applying VAT/GST to international trade.
- Potential practical implications for businesses operating in Asia Pacific, with highlights in Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand.
Explore the latest developments of these guidelines and identify potential prospects for your business.

Recently, we have seen trends emerging globally and in Asia Pacific as tax authorities seek to deal with maintaining revenue in more turbulent economic times by finding ways to ensure the correct tax revenues can be collected. As business, and especially commerce, is undertaken without regard to borders, how can authorities share better information and develop strategies to deal with the new borderless business environment? We'll discuss:
- Trends around increased information gathering, such as India's "Black Money" reporting and Japan's asset reporting, and dealing with strategies to prevent tax loss across borders.
- Impact of authorities' latest thinking for tax strategy and their goals on the tax environment in Asia Pacific along with global initiatives.
- How does tax governance impact employers and mobile employees in Asia Pacific and what is the future outlook?
Listen to what the tax authorities are thinking and what this can mean for the tax environment for employers and mobile employees.
