Tax Implications of Permanent Establishment Status in China

Shenzhen, China | March 26, 2013 Guangzhou, China | March 27, 2013


A permanent establishment (PE) generally refers to “a fixed place of business through which the business of an enterprise is carried on in a country.” PE status is an issue of great concern for overseas companies and individuals operating in China due to the tax implications.


In double taxation agreements, PE status determines whether or not a contracting state can tax the business profits or income of a resident enterprise or individial of the other contracting state. This is especially important for business executives who regularly commute between China and Hong Kong.


The seminar will focus on the tax obligations of non-resident enterprises and how PE's are taxed. Furthermore, the seminar will clarify the IIT implications for expats working under PE in China, as well as the PE risk for secondment agreement and for connected projects.
