A series addressing pertinent global tax topics and recent developments

Global tax developments impacting the Asia-Pacific region: What you need to know

As economies begin to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, multinationals face a paradigm shift induced by a global downturn and influenced by major changes in tax policy, legislation and administration aimed in part at supporting the recovery. Ongoing tax reforms and other tax developments in the Asia-Pacific region are likely to have a significant impact on multinationals investing and operating in the region.

Within the Asia-Pacific region, governments are introducing tax reforms to aid in corporate recovery and encourage investment while adopting new approaches to widen their tax base and improve tax collection. Many multinationals are already experiencing increased audit activity and expect the controversy landscape across the region to become even more challenging. Multinationals are also working to understand what effect ongoing global tax developments, such as the Base Erosion and Profiting Shifting (BEPS) 2.0 initiative and recently proposed US tax reforms, may have on their operational structures.

This webcast features panelists from across the region who will highlight recent tax trends and important developments, including increased tax controversy and mitigation considerations, from country and regional perspectives.

Topics will include:

  • Tax reforms and other important tax developments

  • Tax-controversy focus areas and actions to be considered

  • Regional hubs and supply chain structures
