Updates on Tax Audits and Offshore Claims in Tightening BEPS Environment
Event Code : 20200120


With the recent changes in the global tax landscape and the codification of the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) and enactment of transfer pricing law in Hong Kong, it appears that the Hong Kong Inland Revenue Department (IRD) has been deploying more resources in conducting tax audits and investigations on the taxpayers’ business affairs, particularly those involving offshore claims and cross-border transactions.
In this seminar, PwC Tax Controversy Services professionals will share their insights in tax audits and handling offshore claims.  Topics to be covered include:

- The latest landscape of tax controversy and offshore claim in Hong Kong
- Common areas and circumstances triggering a tax audit;
- Practical tactics to resolve with the IRD’s tax audits and challenges on offshore claims;
-  Precaution measures to avoid potential tax disputes;
- Real life case sharing; and
- A light touch on the BEPS 2.0 implications.
