Why withholding tax (WHT) is a cost for the business community?
It is essential to understand WHT and how to manage cross-border transactions. Understanding your business’s fundamental cross-border (potential) risks will allow you to manage your tax risk confidently.
The law of international taxation is used in this session to describe the rules and principles that together form how Singapore asserts and limits its jurisdiction to tax cross-border income flows. Expert speaker Kevin Lee will outline legal and practical issues surrounding the features of the Singapore WHT.
However, you should be aware that there is no universally accepted view of the precise nature of international tax law, and there is even a view that there is no overarching international tax regime. That there are competing views in this area is of little surprise. As you will discover, taxation is a very controversial and politically driven area of study, making it even more exciting and exciting. This program is a mix of practical experience and academic knowledge.
