Financing your Business - International Aspects Case Study


This case study highlights the practical issues arising from the myriad of international tax law changes. These changes are not limited to the 'big end of town'. They have broad application to many taxpayers investing offshore. The case study looks at both the changes and also the issues and opportunities that have arisen and will focus on outbound investments and exports from Australia.

- Debt or equity financing - does it matter?

- Division 7A and loans from foreign associates

- When do you need to consider the foreign accruals measures?

- Thin capitalization - opportunity or threat?

- Withholding tax - opportunities to invest tax free into the US or UK?

- Foreign exchange issues in practice.

This case study was updated by Jason Ellis and Michael van Schaik for the Taking Your Business to the World - Basic Principles seminar held in Adelaide on 31 August 2004.
