International Tax

International tax

International tax and investment planning forms an integral part of much of our work.

International tax planning

Our strong domestic corporate and tax capability is complimented by a thorough understanding of the international tax and investment issues that affect inbound and outbound investment, the management of offshore business structures and the taxation of persons moving between countries.

We have particular expertise in the following areas:

  • Conducting business offshore – from a ‘representative office’ to a full-blown local presence;
  • Inbound investment and operations – assisting foreign enterprises to establish an efficient and robust trading presence in Australia;
  • International salary packaging – maximising the remuneration to employees both at home and while overseas; and
  • International licensing – including withholding tax planning and the use of offshore jurisdictions.

International tax disputes and voluntary disclosures

Things don’t always go smoothly when you are operating a business or working overseas.

First, it can be hard to work out what your obligations actually are – both in the foreign country and back home. Secondly, it is not always easy to stay compliant when you are dealing with more than one tax regime.

We’re here to help you understand what your obligations are, and also help you set things straight when you may have strayed off the straight-and-narrow path of compliance.

We have a network of professional advisers in key markets that we work with on a regular basis, in particular, the US, the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong and China. Together we can assist you keep on the right side of the law.

We also have long-standing experience in managing the process of voluntary disclosure of offshore investments and structures that do not comply with our local tax laws.
