PE – Permanent Establishments
A permanent establishment (PE) is a fixed place of business which generally gives rise to corporate, income or value-added tax liability in a particular jurisdiction. Sometimes even a person with contractual power is enough to create a tax liability. The term is defined in many income tax treaties and in most European Union Value Added Tax systems. The tax systems in some civil-law countries impose income taxes and value-added taxes only where an enterprise maintains a PE in the country concerned. Definitions of PEs under tax law or tax treaties may contain specific inclusions or exclusions.

Offshore or Onshore
It is surely not forbidden to own an Offshore Company for a legitimate purpose. However, if the only purpose of your Offshore entity is Tax Avoidance or even worse Tax Evasion, you should reconsider all options.

Foreign Tax Credits
Even if there is no double taxation agreement in place between your country of residence and the country where the income arises, tax relief may be available by means of a foreign tax credit.
For example, if you pay tax at 15% on your foreign income in the country in which the income arises, then you may still have to pay tax in the country of your tax residence If the tax rate there is 20%, you would only have to pay 5% of tax there, as you would be given a tax relief for the 15% of tax paid overseas.
In some cases, foreign income is even tax-free in your country of residence. Speak to us to find out more.
International Taxation – Tax Relief
You may be taxed on your foreign income by ONE COUNTRY and by the country where your income is from.
You can usually claim tax relief to get some or all of this tax back. How you claim depends on whether your foreign income has already been taxed.
Speak to us if you are unsure of how to do so.
The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) is intended to detect and deter the evasion of US tax by US citizens who hide money outside the US. This agreement shall create greater transparency by strengthening the flow of information, its reporting and compliance by providing rules around the processes of documenting, reporting and withholding on a payee.
FATCA rules do not only have an impact on the financial services sector but also affect many entities outside of the traditional financial services sector with operations both in and outside of the United States.
