Audits or investigations by China tax authorities can arise if tax affairs were not handled timely and adequately, and the time bar for tax assessment is not necessarily limited to 5 years.   China tax exposures will not only complicate annual report preparation but can also adversely affect dividend distribution, IPO, M&A and other business plans.   In case an overseas transferor of China taxable assets failed to report and pay any taxes, tax surprises and reputational risks can also go to the buyer (i.e.  the statutory tax withholding agent).   Arbitrations and litigations help to resolve the related commercial disputes.

In this seminar, which is especially useful to corporate management and legal professionals who handle arbitrations and litigations over transactions involving China tax matters, a seasoned speaker in China tax aspect will share his insight and expertise over the following items: 

  • Common types of China tax controversy and dispute
    • Between tax authority and taxpayer
    • Between buyer and seller
    • Between plaintiff and defendant
  • Main points of disagreement 
    • Statutory v. contractual obligations
    • Statute of limitations for tax assessment and tax recovery
    • Non-compliance consequences (e.g. late fee, interest, fine)
    • Tax risk quantification
    • National tax laws v. local practices
  • Differences among tax review, audit and investigation by China tax authorities
  • Lessons from China tax cases
  • Questions from the floor
