The tax issues connected to cross border transactions can be complicated. These include withholding taxes, tax treatment of “foreign source income” and the related expenses and the consequences of sales of assets between controlled parties, to name a few. This workshop will take the participants through a detailed discussion on the important areas to be considered from and Malaysian taxation standpoint to ensure that the tax affairs of parties engaged in cross border transactions are adequately addressed. Cross border transactions encompass transfer of goods, services, capital, and technology. It is possible that more than one country has a taxation claim on income from such transactions. As a consequence, the same income may be taxed twice i.e. Economic Double Taxation Occurs. As such, Double Taxation Agreements play an important role in providing relief.
