Overseas expansion can be a potential gold rush for growing SMEs and their compliance costs. This paper provides an in depth review of key outbound structuring issues including:
whether an offshore entity/branch is required
common foreign tax issues to be aware of
whether your offshore structure is actually an Australian resident
non-resident company/trust/branch compared
taxation of profits upon repatriation to different types of Australian structures - effective tax rates for ultimate owners
worked examples to illustrate how these issues apply in practice.
