Frequently Asked Questions

Could I have an example of how your tax advisory?

Let’s say that your companies are ailing in financial health as debts pile up for each but insufficient income is coming in. Therefore, you’ve decided to carry out: an operational restructuring by merging all companies into in order to save on overheads; and also a debt restructuring exercise in order to wipe out irrecoverable debts in hopes that it will lower your company’s tax obligation.

You have concerns over tax risks but you aren’t sure of it. So you hired us to have a look. We ten conduct a feasibility study on both restructuring, and found the following:
– the merger exercise will involve a transfer of income from all to one company, which adds up to a big pile of chargeable tax; and
– the debt restructuring exercise may not work if you had not taken reasonable measures to actually recover the debts first.

Therefore, our team researches viable alternatives, and found the following proposed solutions to be viable:
– the merger exercise will go on, but with proper tax documentations in order to lessen tax risks; and
– the debt restructuring exercise will include, let’s say, a period of six months during which every reasonable attempt is to be made to recover outstanding debts to ascertain whether the debtor is an bankrupted, before writing the debt off, and drafting all relevant documentations to explain these actions to the tax authorities.

You agree with solutions, and you require that we stay on in order to ensure that the solutions actually produce the tax results that you’re looking for.

We agree, and, thus, charge you a one-year retainer for this service. For the next one year, we monitor the exercises through inspecting relevant records in order to determine whether tax objectives are achieved, and advise your further if any changes are needed to be made.

What are the differences between corporate tax advisory and tax planning?

Some may confuse corporate tax advisory with tax planning. Both seek to help you to get the most optimal tax obligation. However, whilst tax planning is seeks to minimise your tax obligations through tax reliefs, corporate tax advisory is about counselling you on the tax implications of every major transactions, decisions, or operations that your company undertakes. Hence, the latter is actually more transactional, and it seeks to minimise your tax obligation not by tax reliefs, but by how your business is structured or being carried out.
