Tax avoidance arrangements refer to scenarios where taxpayers intentionally select convoluted, intricate, and unconventional legal structures primarily or exclusively to achieve tax advantages, thereby ensuring that the “intended tax treatment” favors their own interests.

However, it's essential to be aware that Chinese tax authorities can take action against such arrangements, emphasizing the importance of economic substance over mere form.

In the upcoming webinar, our Tax Manager Shirley Chu will guide you through the concept of tax avoidance arrangements as defined by Chinese tax authorities. We will also explore the standard procedures for special tax investigations triggered by tax avoidance arrangements lacking reasonable commercial purposes. Finally, we will provide practical recommendations to help businesses mitigate tax risks associated with these arrangements.

Key points:

  • What are tax avoidance arrangements?
  • What kind of situations are regarded as tax avoidance arrangements by China’s tax authorities?
  • How will China’s tax authorities deal with situations recognized as tax avoidance arrangements?
  • Why self-investigation and adjustment are recommended strategies for mitigating risks
