What's On

Registration Closed

A changing global tax landscape and an increasingly mobile workforce have made the task of managing and mitigating tax risks for companies and individuals more challenging than ever. Intergovernmental measures such as the implementation of the Inclusive Framework on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting, Common Reporting Standard and Automatic Exchange of Information have placed companies and individuals under increasing scrutiny by tax authorities sometimes simultaneously across multiple jurisdictions. In Hong Kong and the Mainland, there have also been a noticeable rise in the number of cases involving tax audits and investigations. What are the tax risks and how could these be identified? What are the preventive measures that taxpayers could adopt to effectively manage these tax risks and ensuing disputes, especially where cross-border individual tax is concerned?

In this final workshop of the "Managing Tax Controversy Series", tax experts from PwC will speak on common tax pitfalls in China and Hong Kong by providing case studies on tax disputes. They will also provide practical suggestions on dealing with tax audits and investigations on both the corporate and individual levels, as well as functional strategies to manage tax risks for a mobile workforce and cross-border situations.

This workshop series should be of interest to all those who would like to have a better understanding of handling tax controversy situations in Hong Kong and China, and is particularly relevant to those who work in the accounting, finance, tax or legal fields.

Upon registration of this workshop, participants will receive a coupon code, which is entitled to a special discount of $50 applicable for the same person to another workshop in this series.

You may also sign up all four workshops to enjoy a total savings of $250! If you are interested in taking up this offer, please contact Ms Karen Au by phone at 2823 1200 or by email at
