Choosing Australia as a Holding Company Jurisdiction

Published on 09 Sep 2008 | Took place at Medina grand, Melbourne, VIC

This event was part of the International Tax Series. Aimed at CFOs, in-house tax counsel, accountants, lawyers and other advisors to multinational corporate groups, this event assumed some familiarity with the subject matter, and was aimed at individuals with practical experience in the area.

Not long ago Australia was far from the top contender amongst places in which you might choose to establish the holding company or regional headquarters of a multinational group. Our tax regime was decidedly uncompetitive, especially when compared to some of our Asian neighbours. But recently something quite remarkable has happened. Somewhere along the road of reform and treaty renegotiation we underwent a transformation. Australia is now a rather attractive jurisdiction in which to locate that holding company or regional headquarters! This event covered some of the issues associated with choosing Australia as a holding company jurisdiction.
