There is no doubt the current buzz word is “the Cloud” and it will significantly change the way you do business – for the user it may mean a cheaper and different way of doing business, whereas for the provider it represents an opportunity to access various markets.
This Cloud Computing seminar considered Cloud services and aimed to demystify many of the questions of users and providers. It aimed to tie in what the Cloud means from a practical business, legal and tax (including GST and transfer pricing) perspective. This is a developing area and many issues are still being formulated and the aim of the sessions is to outline some of the issues that can arise.
These materials are targeted at users of cloud services including corporates, tax managers, or advisors who have clients who are buying cloud (or are using the cloud themselves) and don’t know what it is or how it affects them.
Topics covered included:
legal aspects of cloud computing
direct income tax
transfer pricing and the cloud – what do multinationals need to consider?
practical case studies – user of the service and the provider.
