From Business Challenges to Tax Challenges

July Event

The tax landscape has become increasingly complicated and some business structures may have been rendered redundant by changes to the tax legislation. The revision of tax laws as well as increased scrutiny from tax authorities has resulted in increased tax costs for businesses. 

More than keeping pace and recognising developments in tax, businesses need to review their business model to assess the potential tax impact. Developments in tax regulations could significantly impact the broader business goals and an organisation’s ability to comply with tax laws. While we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, now is the time for businesses to reconfigure and align their operating structures to a changing world and strategise for what’s next.

KPMG invites you to register for a webinar where our tax colleagues from Corporate Tax, Tax Dispute Resolution, Transfer Pricing and Indirect Tax specialisations, discuss tax considerations revolving around pertinent business issues on technology-related expenditure/projects, international tax issues and recent BEPS-related developments and intra group charges. 

The speakers will share their practical experience with participants and key tax changes introduced in 2020 and 2021 as well as tax factors to consider as the world moves to COVID-19 recovery. 

Whether you are an existing business in Malaysia planning for the way forward or a foreign corporation looking to expand your footprint in Malaysia, you are welcome to join this webinar to empower yourself to make informed decisions.


From Business Challenges to Tax Challenges: 
Conversations with Your Tax Advisors 

Date: 13 July 2021 (Tuesday) 
Time: 9:00am – 12:30pm


Topic 1 – Developing Digital Capabilities

Many companies have been focusing on evolving their digital capabilities and the pressure of the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated this trend. This session will explore tax implications of technology-related expenditure, including the acquisition of ICT hardware/software, customised software, involvement of overseas vendors (i.e. withholding tax, imported taxable services, digital service tax) as well as the provision via inter company charges.

Topic 2 – Insights on the International Tax Landscape

The tax landscape is becoming increasingly challenging for multinational groups and businesses with a global reach. This session will share tax factors relating to overseas operations and cross-border projects with an update on recent developments in the international tax arena. 

Topic 3 – Navigating Tax in a Disrupted World

This session will look at a number of tax factors to consider in the context of intra group charges. 

Topic 4 – Post COVID-19: Back to Business

In this session we will reflect on tax changes, measures and incentives introduced in 2020 and 2021 by the Government of Malaysia. We will also look from the tax perspective at related business issues.
