China's new rule on Administration of Enterprise Income Tax (EIT) Withheld on China-source income derived by Non-Resident Enterprises (NREs)

7 December 2017
Host: Jennifer Zhang
Presenters: Jie Liang and Shanice Siu

China's State Administration of Taxation (SAT) published new guidance (Bulletin 37) on 27 October 2017, accompanied by an official interpretation, that revises the rules governing the administration of withholding tax on China-source income derived by NREs. The new rule provides clearer guidance on the collection of EIT on China-source income derived by NREs and resolves some practical issues that have existed until now. It also includes measures to reduce the administrative burden on withholding agents, coordinate responsibilities among different Chinese tax authorities, and generally improve the business environment. Bulletin 37 repeals the previous Provisional Administration Measures on Administration of EIT Withheld on China-source income derived by NREs (Circular Guoshuifa [2009] No. 3), Administration Measures of EIT for Income Derived by Non-REs from Equity Transfers (Circular Guoshuihan [2009] No. 698), as well as some relevant articles in other circulars. The issuance of Bulletin 37, which is welcome news for both NREs and withholding agents, generally will apply as from 1 December 2017, but some provisions will also apply to income that has arisen but not been dealt with before the effective date. We'll discuss:

  • The key clarifications made in the new rule, such as:
    • Abolishment of 30-day contract registration, but what remains?
    • How to calculate capital gains, including currency conversion and on installment payments
    • When to withhold or pay tax
    • How to distinguish whether failure to withhold falls under "tax withheld but not paid" or "tax not withheld"
    • Clarification on in-charge tax authorities
  • What are the implications to direct and indirect transfers?
  • What are the implications to overseas remittance procedures?

Learn about China tax authorities' latest administrative trends on EIT withheld at source for Non-REs.

India's safe harbor rules: The road thus far, and the road ahead

31 October 2017
Host: Sanjay Kumar
Presenters: Vani Arora and Tehmina Sharma

Transfer pricing safe harbor rules were first introduced in India in 2013 with a view to provide tax certainty to taxpayers. But these rules, particularly the profit margins prescribed, did not attract significant interest from the larger cross-section of the taxpayers as they believed that the profit margins were unduly high and did not justify the economic or business rationale. The rules were recently revised by the government to align with the business conditions, economic realities, and taxpayer expectations. We'll discuss:

  • Recent changes in the Indian safe harbor rules and a comparison with the earlier rules.
  • Discussion on some key changes, such as inclusion of low-value adding intra-group services.
  • Technical and clarificatory issues on the applicability of safe harbor rules, and remaining grey areas.
  • Whether these changes provide an effective dispute prevention mechanism?
  • Potential impact on the Indian Advance Pricing Agreement mechanism.

Learn about the important developments on the Indian safe harbor rules, and how the changes would affect your business and tax position.

  • The latest court decisions and legislative changes.
  • Administrative approaches adopted by tax authorities in the region.
  • Practical approaches adopted by multinationals in managing their global financing arrangements.

Taiwan Tax Reform Proposals: Positive moves for investors and taxpayers

24 October 2017
Host: Leonard Khaw
Presenters: Elizabeth Dodson, Ping Gwo, and Amber Li

On 1 September 2017, Taiwan's Ministry of Finance (MOF) announced a proposed tax reform package, increasing the corporate income tax rate from 17% to 20%, as well as the dividend withholding tax rate for non-resident shareholders (before applying a treaty limitation) from 20% to 21%. At the same time, it is proposed that the rate of the special surtax on undistributed profits will be reduced from 10% to 5%, however, it will cease to be creditable against a non-resident shareholder's dividend withholding tax liability. From a purely domestic perspective, the most important proposed change is the abolition of the dividend imputation system. We'll discuss:

  • Commonly used investment structures into Taiwan.
  • The September 2017 tax reform measures.
  • The impact of these measures on such commonly used investment structures.
  • Decisions investors face, and the choices they have insofar as tax is concerned.

Special tax regimes and various incentives have been introduced by the government of Thailand in an effort to attract high value-added industries into the country. This is one of the reasons why Thailand has been ranked sixth among the world's best up-and-coming economies in 2017 according to a study from U.S. News & World Report. In this discussion, we will share some incentives implemented by government to promote the investment into Thailand. We'll discuss:

Inbound investment into Japan: Practical insights on recent developments

12 September 2017
Host: David Bickle
Presenters: Lars Dahlen, Brian Douglas, and Tim O'Brien

Japan remains a strategic market for investment for many companies and investors, but concerns over the country's economic recovery persist. Under the monetary and fiscal policies, and structural reforms of Abenomics, recent Japanese tax reform legislation has been aimed to encourage greater foreign investment into Japan. Most notable has been the steady decline in the corporate income tax rate and domestic rules that exempt foreign investment from taxation in Japan. The recent tax reforms have also introduced a number of the initiatives recommended under BEPS project, including rules on the taxation of the digital economy, hybrid instruments, transfer pricing documentation and country-by-country (CbC) reporting, and in the latest 2017 Tax Reform, an over-haul of Japan's CFC rules. We'll discuss:

  • An overview of investment structures into Japan.
  • Update on current implementation of the BEPS Action points in Japan.

Rewriting the rules for talent management and mobility: Insights from Deloitte's 2017 Human Capital Trends Report

5 September 2017
Host: Joseph Logudic
Presenters: Pushp Deep Gupta and Andrew Warneck

Organizations face a radically shifting context in the workplace, the workforce, and work itself. Much of this has been driven by technology advancement. Deloitte's 2017 Global Human Capital Trends Report reveals that business productivity tends not to keep pace with technological progress. So, in a digital age defined by disruptions, fade-out of long-standing business, and the rise of new players, employers need to re-think how they can stay in the game or even create an edge through modern talent management and mobility methodologies. Using case studies from the report, we will explore how organizations are replacing structural hierarchies with networks of agile and powerful teams, how employees also enjoy faster and more promising career progression, taking advantage of the broader exposures, and removal of geographical boundaries. We'll discuss:

  • Digital workplaces and workforces.
  • Making talent mobility a core value.
  • Data analytics to find, attract, and place people globally.
  • Employee experience for cultural change, engagement, productivity, and growth.

General Anti-Avoidance Rule (GAAR): Applicability and implications

24 August 2017
Host: Sunil Shah
Presenters: Pravin Agrawal, Jatin Kanabar, and Pritin Kumar

India has introduced the General Anti-Avoidance Rule (GAAR) effective from 1 April 2017. GAAR is aimed at curtailing tax avoidance in general (in India) and to rein in the innovative tax avoidance arrangements entered into by taxpayers. GAAR provisions vest the tax authorities with wide powers to, inter-alia, disregard, look through or re-characterize, or ignore arrangements etc. What is further concerning is the apparent open-ended residual power in the statute which provides that the tax consequences will be determined in a manner as is deemed appropriate at the option of the Revenue authorities. We'll discuss:

  • Overview of GAAR.
  • The GAAR provisions and the potential areas of impact.
  • Practical case studies illustrating the operation of the GAAR provisions to common tax planning arrangements.
  • The way forward.

The new transfer pricing documentation rules following the OECD's BEPS Action 13 intend to strengthen the quality of documents maintained by the taxpayers and enhance transparency. As the introduction of CbC, master file, and local file requirements is now well underway in a number of the SEA jurisdictions, some companies may require substantial lead time in the implementation processes including commitment and investment in systems and resources.

  • Systems and process issues that have emerged to date.

Hot issues in India: Secondary adjustments and interest limitations

8 August 2017
Host: Rohinton Sidhwa
Presenters: Sanjay Kumar and Radhakishan Rawal

Two legal provisions have been introduced in India that are likely to have far reaching implications for multinational enterprises (MNEs) with respect to their intragroup transactions. First, introduction of a secondary adjustment pursuant to a transfer pricing addition and the second, an interest deduction limitation, prompted by BEPS Action 4. Both of these provisions are intended to align Indian tax laws with OECD guidelines and international best practices. Secondary adjustment also addresses the issue of physical movement of cash to correct the negative impact such transfer pricing additions have on foreign currency reserves of the country. The interest rate limitation applies even when guarantees are provided to a third party lender. We'll discuss:

  • An overview of rules and regulations under both the statutory provisions.
  • Unclear technical aspects and interpretations.
  • Practical challenges in adoption and implementation.
  • Provide guidance on tweaking transfer pricing policies by MNEs for risk mitigation.

Host: Daniel Ho
Presenters: Walter Jr. Abela, Carlo Navarro, and Senen Quizon

The Philippines is one of the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia, posting an impressive 6.6% growth in the last quarter of 2016. To sustain its growth momentum, it seeks to introduce economic and tax policy reforms to improve the country's investment climate. Sweeping reforms on the tax front are underway to simplify compliance and address the weaknesses in the tax administration. In a move towards simplifying tax compliance, the Philippine tax authority has issued new guidelines which reduce the number of steps and days in registering and securing certifications from the Philippine tax authority, making it easier to do business in the Philippines. Know more about these changes that are taking place in the Philippines. We'll discuss:

  • Recent corporate tax developments.
  • 2017 Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) priority programs (i.e., BIR's internal administrative projects) which would impact multinationals investing into the Philippines.
  • New policies on tax assessment (i.e., policy on three-year successive audits of taxpayers, VAT audit program, etc.).
  • BEPS and the recent Transfer Pricing developments in the Philippines.
