3 December 2013, JW Marriott Hotel, Hong Kong

The global world is currently encountering the effect from the impact of global economic recession.  Tax authorities in different jurisdictions are continuously strengthening the supervision of tax collection in recent years with an aim to alleviate the economic slowdown and to increase the fiscal revenue for sustaining stable economic growth.

Meanwhile, Mainland China tax authorities have reinforced their attention and administration on the following aspects in 2013 including the national rollout of the VAT Pilot program, stricter scrutiny on non-resident taxation administration, more enforcement on permanent establishment, transfer pricing and other aggressive tax planning in response to the OECD’s newly released action plan on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) etc.

In Hong Kong, to comply with the latest international standard on tax transparency, a new law has been enacted in July 2013 that enables Hong Kong to enter into standalone tax information exchange agreements.  In addition, the new law also enhances the scope of information that can be exchanged under the comprehensive avoidance of double taxation agreements (CDTAs), which may help enhance Hong Kong’s CDTAs’ expansion.

As the year 2013 comes to a close and prior to closing year-end, you may have some of the following questions in mind:

  • Are you aware of the latest Mainland China tax circulars?
  • How will the national rollout of the VAT Pilot program impact your company?
  • What are the recent focus on transfer pricing investigations in China?
  • Are you aware of the recent tax developments in Hong Kong?

In light of the above, we are pleased to invite you to attend our seminar EY China Tax Forum 2013, which will be held at the JW Marriott Hotel, Hong Kong, on 3 December 2013.

Come and join us in this interactive and analytical seminar to network with your peers and listen to our experienced tax professionals discuss typical Mainland China and Hong Kong tax issues encountered by taxpayers, its implications on your business operations and how you can make preparations with respect to your tax risk management and planning process.
