Tax Avoidance Will Soon Be Eliminated!

OECDMore than 200 countries have agreed with OECD to list their expatriates and assets thru the set up of Common Reporting System (CRS). The aim is to eliminate tax avoidance by individual and corporate. Malaysia has signed on the CRS with OECD to commence in 2018. With CRS in place, the system allows the tax authorities freely exchange information on expatriates living in their countries for tax assessment purpose. Hence, it is essential for entrepreneurs to set up business with real commercial substance. This will bring great impact to especially to jurisdictions which offer zero tax, unable to issue tax certificate for both the company and expatriates and lack of infrastructure to assist the businesses to create a commercial substance. For high cost jurisdiction such as Hong Kong and Singapore, it may lose out in terms on affordability. Labuan Mid Shore is one of the jurisdiction in Asia Pacific with complete infrastructures to enable you to create commercial substance for your business with affordability.
