Planning before market entry is critical for a successful venture. Besides commercial and regulatory considerations, it is important for businesses to consider tax implications and incentive opportunities.
In Budget 2015, the Singapore government introduced the enhancement on the Double Tax Deduction (DTD) for Internationalisation scheme to provide greater support to businesses expanding overseas as well as create more skilled jobs and opportunities for Singaporeans to work overseas.
Join this workshop to gain clarity on some important tax issues to consider when expanding overseas, plus understand key features of incentives that are available to support your business. With our partner KPMG, IE Singapore will also be sharing experiences on helping businesses prepare for their internationalisation plans during this workshop. 

Workshop Highlights: 
  • Sharing on key tax issues for consideration when expanding overseas.
  • Learn more about the DTD for Internationalisation for your employees' oversees posting.
  • Case studies on common cross border tax considerations for Singapore companies.
  • Networking opportunities with professional tax practitioners, IE officers and like-minded Singapore companies, including SMEs. 
Who Should Attend:
  • CFOs, business owners and business development managers of Singapore companies seeking to deepen their understanding on international tax matters.
