Two experts from PwC will provide an overview of the FY2014 tax reform, details of which will be publicized by the government at the end of December. The focus of the presentation will be on the introduction of new rules for branch profit attribution, as well as other aspects of the FY14 reform which may be relevant to the banking sector.
Attendees will leave the presentation with:
- An understanding of the parts of the FY14 tax reform that touch on the banking industry. Depending on the government proposals, this may include one or more of corporate income tax, personal income tax, transfer pricing, consumption tax, withholding tax, or any other incentives or special taxes that may be relevant.
- An understanding of the practical aspects of the reform in relation to branch profit attribution. PwC will provide guidance on the immediate practical considerations that banks should be prepared for by drawing on experiences from other countries where the branch profit rules have been changed.
