Exploring the Future of Business Under the Impact of Tax Internationalization

The rise, evolution, and convergence of disruptive forces continue to shape the future of tax: value chains are being disintermediated, trade protectionism and counter-globalization are on the rise, the competitive landscape is changing, emerging technologies are emerging, tax models are evolving, open data is increasing, eco-partnerships and national alliances are forming, and international regulatory reform is accelerating.

While the haze of the epidemic is gradually fading, the multiple challenges faced by enterprises are intensifying in the never-slowing pace of international development. In the post-epidemic era, companies can either passively face the challenge of decay and demise or proactively seize the opportunity to overtake the competition. Today, the tax implications of doing business in a single country or engaging in multinational operations are becoming increasingly complex and far-reaching.

The OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting(BEPS) Action Plan offers a unique opportunity to truly address the fundamental question: How can we make the most of taxation in today’s global, digital economy? Where do companies stand in the face of the impact of tax internationalization? How can CFOs, responsible for formulating corporate development strategies and monitoring the effectiveness of their implementation lead their companies to find ways to break out of difficult situations and explore the way forward in the face of adversity?

CFO International Tax Strategy and Leadership Seminar Topics

National Tax to Taxing Power Sharing

Good Law and Good Governance, Globalization Leads the Way

National taxation focuses on the right of a sovereign state or government to tax market participants within its territory, while international taxation focuses on the sharing of taxing rights between sovereign governments for cross-border commercial activities. Procedurally, the main issue in international taxation is which country should tax the transactions that occur within its territory. In the absence of procedures and rules of international tax law, each country can claim tax on a transaction as long as the transaction passes through its jurisdiction in some way, regardless of whether the transaction originates in its jurisdiction. Therefore, in order to avoid conflicts arising from claims of taxation of transactions, international tax rules are designed to avoid double taxation of the same transaction in both jurisdictions and to ensure that the transaction is taxed only once. Through this session, delegates will learn about the theory and practice of sharing cross-border taxation rights between sovereign governments from different dimensions.

The Importance of International Tax Planning

Coordinate International Resources, Optimize The Structure, Expand The Scale, and All And For One

As China integrates into the global economy, more and more landmark alliances, mergers and acquisitions opportunities are opening up in different industry sectors around the world. Most multinational companies around the world have finance departments that include tax professionals. The job of an MNC’s in-house tax professional is to research the tax rules of the host country and comply with local tax rules through tax return information, tax calculations and payment of income taxes due. When a multinational company operates in several countries, the job of tax professionals becomes more complex because they must apply both the domestic rules of those countries as well as the international tax rules to develop tax provisions for each country. Through this topic, delegates will learn how to fully integrate local wisdom and coordinate international resources in international tax planning to provide strong cross-border solutions.

International Tax Team Building Within The Company

The Finance Team cannot do it alone, but must also have the Participation and Support of Business and International Experts

Most multinational corporations worldwide have finance departments that include tax professionals. The internal tax professionals of multinational companies work on the tax rules of the host country and comply with the local tax rules through tax return information, tax calculations and payment of income taxes due. When a multinational company operates in several countries, the work of tax professionals becomes more complex because they must apply both the domestic rules of those countries and the international tax rules to develop tax provisions for each country. Through case studies, the delegates will follow the pace of internationalization and ensure the stability of the company’s global business.

The New Image of Personal Taxation in a Global Perspective

Proactive Tracking, Risk Management and Flexible Response

The personal income tax, which has been in existence for 200 years, has set the “high-income group” as the main tax payer, which is roughly the same worldwide. Foreign scholars have also given it a special name – Robin Hood tax. Robin Hood, the “hero of poverty alleviation” who symbolizes fairness and justice in the West, is not inconsistent with this. The ever-changing international environment has made the management of tax obligations and tax planning increasingly complex, with individuals facing multi-country direct and indirect tax compliance obligations, tax reporting and risk management issues at all times. At the same time, today’s family businesses need to focus on how to ensure the intergenerational transmission of wealth while still meeting the current needs of family members and supporting continued growth and business operations. Through this topic, delegates will gain a new understanding of how to deal with global personal tax challenges and other issues.

Transfer Pricing

Seeking Progress in Change, Going Forward

Businesses are facing increasing tax and regulatory requirements in the countries in which they operate. The many uncertainties are an unbearable business risk for taxpayers. The OECD is attempting to address the imbalance of tax shifts from high to low tax jurisdictions through the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) program to counteract the impact of income shifting by multinational corporations to avoid taxes and the impact of base erosion caused by bypassing transfer pricing planning between business related parties. base erosion caused by transfer pricing planning bypassed between business-related parties. This topic will analyze how multinational companies can reduce transfer pricing risks from the dimensions of designing international transfer pricing methods, applying effective transfer pricing schemes and international transfer pricing risk management cycle and control of tax data.

International Taxation in the Digital Economy

Out With The Old, In With The New, In With The Digital

The digital economy has placed new demands on the functions of tax executives, such as process optimization and project management, technology practices and applications, tax data governance and analytics, transformation of resource allocation models, and the ability to improve operational efficiency, sustainability and automation, making it a challenge for tax departments to transform or fall behind. Investing in technology is a critical tool for efficiency gains, data quality improvements and value insights. The power of technology to drive digital enablement needs no introduction, as value creation, capture and transfer are increasingly taking many digital forms and the trend is irreversible. In this session, delegates will gain insight into how to respond to the fundamental and transformative demands of digitalization on the way tax is managed.
