Impact of Coronavirus to multinationals

20 February, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM HKT (GMT +8)
Host: Hong Ye
Presenters: Wei Heng Jia and Cecille Yang

The coronavirus outbreak in China is having a global effect. Many multinationals, whether they have subsidiaries in China or not, are facing supply chain breakdown, loss of revenue, disruption of business due to international traveling restriction and measures to protect employee safety. We will discuss a few things that may be of the interest of businesses:

  • Chinese government's tax relief measures in the areas of corporate income tax, indirect tax and Customs.
  • Tax considerations when businesses look for solutions to mitigate the impact of this event or future similar events.
  • Individual Income Tax and immigration matters.
  • Labor issues such as the treatment of the employees who are under self-quarantine, termination of employee under the local law, and salary reduction or post adjustment.

Understand these hot topics from Deloitte specialists and be prepared to deal with the impact of coronavirus outbreak on your organization.

Special Edition – Corporate Income Tax
Brexit: Tax developments

5 March, 5:00 - 6:00 PM HKT (GMT +8)
Host: Senthuran Elalingam
Presenters: Caroline Barraclough, Barney Horn, Jurga McCluskey, Amanda Tickel, and Richard Williams

The UK left the EU on 31 January 2020. The UK is now in a transitional period where it aims to negotiate a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the EU before it completely leaves the EU on 31st December 2020. Although very little will change during the transitional period, by the time of this webinar, businesses will have less than 10 months to prepare. Although not everything will be known until the terms of any FTA are agreed, there is much that is certain already. Under these circumstances, businesses need to re-assess and re-engage with their Brexit planning to confirm what changes are required to their existing plans. There may also be an opportunity to implement actions that were not feasible under the previous timeframe. We'll discuss:

  • Next steps in relation to the Brexit timeline.
  • Key customs considerations to mitigate additional compliance obligations and costs to ensure goods can continue to cross borders efficiently.
  • Other tax implications which may arise including VAT, immigration, and corporate tax matters.

Join us to keep up-to-date with developments on Brexit and the impact on your business.

What might these changes mean for your organization? We'll discuss the January 2020 Statement on the outline of the architecture for an international framework, including:

  • Scope and threshold.
  • Nexus rules.

Total Rewards Optimization: The dynamic formula that drives business performance

12 March, 2:00 - 3:00 PM HKT (GMT +8)
Host: Algy Wadsworth
Presenters: Tony Jasper and Kenneth Peh

Employers are facing increasingly fierce competition for talents, as business models change and the rise of disruptive technologies shape the skill-sets needed for the future. Increasing compensation and benefits is expensive and easily replicated by competitors. Are there smarter ways to reward your employees so that it generates the highest perceived value for them which is also aligned with their contributions and performance? We'll discuss:

  • Why employers are looking at total rewards optimization and what does it help to achieve.
  • Why an effective employee communication and engagement is important for total rewards optimization.
  • How does satisfying employee expectations align with improving business performance.
  • What are the other non-financial rewards that employees would typically consider.

Gain insights from Deloitte professionals on how total rewards optimization helps drive employee retention, engagement, and positive business outcomes.
