In a borderless world, cross-country employment and operations have become part of the new normal. As this global landscape continues to develop, it is vital for taxpayers to understand their obligations on their transactions with foreign suppliers of goods and services.

In this free webinar, we will discuss the tax implications of the transactions with non-residents and the tax benefits available to them under the tax treaties including BIR’s requirements on availment thereof. Also, along with the recent development on the Philippines transfer pricing rules, we shall also discuss the transfer pricing considerations for the cross border and related party transactions.
