International tax planning is rife with difficulties. The OECD's Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project and the European Tax Avoidance Directive (ATAD) sparked an international tax revolution, while EU State Aid investigations brought more challenges. Tax advisors must work with the new rules, and to do so they need a detailed analysis of how the developments will impact on international tax planning.
For a helping hand, Croner-i is pleased to announce the launch of Practical International Tax Planning for UK Businesses.
It’s a publication designed to cut through the confusion, helping tax professionals consider the international tax planning requirements of both a UK company expanding its business into foreign jurisdictions, and of a foreign company expanding into the UK.
Available in print or as an online service, this practical commentary is kept current and reads in a clear, logical, user-friendly manner. It aims to be as uncluttered as possible, bringing the essential tax planning considerations to the fore – and focuses on practicality and real-life scenarios rather than theoretical analysis.
The first chapter rounds up the latest position on international developments, while the remaining 27 chapters cover specific steps in the natural business cycle, including:
- selling abroad or in the UK
- setting up a foreign or UK branch
- setting up a foreign or UK subsidiary
Each step is analysed from both the UK and foreign tax viewpoint, with links and citations to the relevant UK legislation, summaries, commentary, and relevant foreign tax rules.
Analysis concentrates on 20 key foreign jurisdictions: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the USA.
- A succinct, readable writing style, with short paragraphs and uncluttered text
- Heavily illustrated with checklists, tables, examples and detailed case studies
- Practical information on foreign tax issues
- Summaries of legislation
- Advice on sensible tax planning techniques
- Ample references to the OECD BEPS project and the European ATAD
