What is this service?

We understand and can advise on various tax matters to do with both inbound and outbound business and personal investment. Whilst these areas of tax law are complex, we take the time to understand your structure and objectives and can advise on the potential tax planning opportunities and pitfalls. 

Common areas we deal with in relation to cross border transactions are:

  • Withholding taxes (Dividends, Royalties, Interest)
  • Transfer pricing policies and risk assessment (OECD guidelines)
  • Profits repatriation and taxation consequences
  • GST treatment on cross border transactions
  • Thin capitalisation
  • Controlled Foreign Companies (CFC rules)
  • Tax residency rules
  • Application of Double Tax Agreements

Who requires this service?

Businesses who are operating subsidiaries in Australia or Australian businesses with operations offshore are often unknowingly exposed to tax and reporting risks to which they need trusted financial advisors to help ensure these risks are being identified and managed. 

Investors will need awareness of how their own tax residency and the interplay with various tax jurisdictions will impact their financial position and the outcomes of various transactions. 

Why Spry Roughley?

We have the international experience and relationships to ensure we can help you and provide the relevant advice and direct assistance.

We offer all the back-office support to inbound start-ups to help them get established.

Through our membership of the INAA Group, an international association of independent accounting and audit firms, we have access to firms like us in most countries where our clients may wish to do business.

Our international association gives us and our clients access to expert tax and business advice in most foreign countries. This allows us to refer our clients to other members of the INAA Group where they require local care of the same standard as we provide – making global business personal.
