With the recent restructuring of the Inland Revenue Department ("IRD"), the IRD's practice in reviewing taxpayers' tax positions are evolving. In-depth reviews on group basis may be conducted not only by the Field Audit and Investigation Unit but also by other teams within the IRD. Practices across different units may vary, and taxpayers should get up to speed on these developments to ensure effective handling of new tax disputes. In addition, given the enormous budget deficit predicted by the Financial Secretary, the IRD is expected to take a more stringent approach in conducting tax audits. In view of the above and under the current economic environment, businesses should be particularly vigilant in the day to day handling of their tax matters to avoid becoming a tax audit target, and handle any tax audit with extra care if already being reviewed.
In this webinar, the speakers will use case studies to share their latest experience on resolving tax disputes. Highlights of the webinar include:
