Where to from here? Expanding business offshore paper


When business is going well in Australia, the inevitable question is often asked of advisers - should we consider expanding offshore? Businesses want to know what it is they need to consider from establishing a structure to sending staff offshore to set things up. Expanding offshore can be daunting and risky but can also provide a huge opportunity for our clients. This paper looks at a range of tax issues relating to the expansion of Australian business operations offshore using a case study involving the deployment of a sales force to Singapore and commencement of manufacturing in Indonesia to work through the Australian income tax and employee tax issues requiring consideration.

Issues explored include:

  • tax and commercial considerations in setting up business
  • how profits are taxed
  • tax structuring
  • profit repatriation
  • elimination of double taxation
  • Taxation of Business Restructures
  • structuring employee contracts
  • taxation of individuals including residency and treaty interaction
  • other Australian employment tax matters including FBT and SGC.
