Tax Structuring

Tax Structuring

How can we help you?

A new tax structuring landscape is rapidly forming as more and more countries adopt the OECD’s recommendations following the issue of the final BEPS reports. With changes proposed to ‘hybrid’ tax arrangements, tax treaties, and the deductibility of intercompany payments, the substance and motive of structures face increasing scrutiny. PKF’s tax professionals are experts in this area and can help your company review its existing structures, and plan new structures, to ensure they align with the changes and are BEPS proof. As a global service provider, PKF provides a full suite of tax structuring and cross-border tax services, which include the following: 


Tax structuring

PKF provides a complete, BEPSresistant strategy for cross-border acquisitions, disposals, and reorganisations, which covers:

  • Structuring your initial investment in a tax-efficient manner;
  • Tax-efficient options to extract the income (profits) of your investment throughout its lifetime; and,
  • A tax efficient exit strategy to minimise or eliminate any capital gains tax implications and provide a tax efficient route for the remittance of residual funds

PKF’s recommendations seek to minimise local taxable profits, crossborder taxes such as withholding taxes and ensures that taxes are minimised by claiming relief under applicable tax treaties.

PKF tax structuring specialists are highly experienced in dealing with different tax systems and revenue authorities’ and using their global and local expertise to reduce the tax impact on foreign operations and minimise your global effective tax rate.
