Taking Your Business to the World - Basic Princples

Published on 31 Aug 2004 | Took place at Stamford Plaza, Adelaide , SA

Are your clients expanding their business overseas? Are individuals relocating as a result of the expansion? It's an exciting time, but too often the tax issues are overlooked until the business is up and running. However, to maximise the success of the expansion it is critical that the issues are addressed up front and the correct structure is in place from the outset.

These materials work through the practical tax issues arising from taking a business overseas; and how the tax issues change as the business evolves from a simple warehouse to a fully fledged operation.

They also address the tax issues facing both employers and employees as people relocate into Australia and overseas.

Taking Your Business to the World

Author(s):  Jim MCMILLAN,  Tim SANDOW 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.
