Permanent Establishment (PE)

This term signifies a company that has established a taxable presence outside its current geolocation. Tax agencies are consistently developing new methods to track permanent establishments that were created either by overseas contractors, temporary business travelers, online activities, among others. Therefore, companies need to take note of this and avoid any unexpected tax penalties that might arise due to these permanent establishments.

OECD Multilateral Instrument (MLI)

One of the most apparent difficulties that our clients have experienced during cross-border operations is analyzing and providing solutions to MLI-influenced adjustments to tax treaties. These policies, such as BEPS and MLI, has made it easier for tax authorities to enforce the recommendations that are enshrined in the BEPS framework, as well as the minimum benchmarks. More than 75 jurisdictions have approved the MLI changes, and it is no doubt a significant adjustment to the multinational tax policies in history. It will not only affect the business organizations but will as well define the mode of transactions and even change some business models.
We can assist you in overcoming the MLI barriers and as well explain its effect on your business designs and operations. We achieve this by thoroughly explaining the concept of MLI, provisions, origin, and the areas of impact on your business.

Recently, the European Union brought about a new mandatory disclosure policy that will promote more clarity and help to check operations in multinational tax planning. Although the implementation will not commence until late 2020, Confidentum will assist taxpayers and third parties in pinpointing and regulating their duties under the Mandatory Disclosure Regime.
These new MDR policies by the EU will result in a broader reporting for different varieties of tax agreements, and it does not give room for any exceptions in the minimum threshold. Hence, it becomes imperative for taxpayers and their third parties to identify, strategize, and adopt policies that will help them to calculate the number of transaction details that need to be revealed.

At Confidentum, we assist our clients to comply with legislation by providing professional guidance on how to assess transactions that are currently being carried out or are planned to take place in future.
