The Asia Tax Executives Forum is coming


Transfer pricing will be covered by a number of panels at this year's Asia Tax Executives' Forum in Singapore in May


Tax directors will get the chance to meet their peers and learn from them about these issues at International Tax Review's Asia Tax Executives' Forum in Singapore in May. The event is being held once again in association with the Asia Chapter of Tax Executives' Institute.

The focus on trade between Asia and the rest of the world ensures that officials are paying more attention to corporate tax arrangements and will continue to do so. As rules and procedures continue to develop around the continent, it is vital for taxpayers to establish effective working relationships with administrators.

India is preparing to introduce new direct and indirect tax systems over the next two years; China is delving into issues such as the indirect transfer of shares; Vietnam has updated its rules on incentives and loss carryforwards; Japan is cutting its corporate tax rate.

Taxpayers, officials and advisers will gather in Singapore in May to discuss these and many more issues relevant to corporate tax systems around Asia. It will be an ideal opportunity for tax executives to meet peers and administrators to exchange ideas and to understand and learn about the management and practice of tax in Asia.

Sessions will look at topics such as regional tax issues; how the tax system in China is developing; what India is doing to prepare for new direct and indirect tax codes in the next two years; transfer pricing and permanent establishment; international tax developments in the US and rest of the world; indirect taxes and uncertain tax positions.

Speakers already confirmed include David Weisner of Citigroup, Sharon Tan of Nike and Bill Husthwaite of Shell. Check the website regularly for updates to the programme.
