To strengthen tax officials’ capabilities in the wave of recent international taxation reforms, the Training Institute, Ministry of Finance (MOFTI) will hold the “2021 International Taxation Workshop on New International Tax Development Trends: Green Tax, Income Tax, and Customs Duty” from November 22 to 23.
MOFTI stated that it holds an international taxation workshop and invites distinguished foreign experts to share the latest tax developments every year. However, this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is hard to invite foreign scholars and experts to Taiwan, so MOFTI invited Accountant Yishian Lin (林宜賢) from Ernst & Young Global Limited (Taiwan) to give lectures in English on the topic of international taxation trends of Green Tax, Income Tax, and Customs Duty to domestic fiscal colleagues. The major points of the workshop included features of Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM), analysis of transfer pricing and transaction value in customs duty, and the development trends of tax treaties, including the beneficial owner, the Limitation on Benefits (LOB), the Principal Purpose Test (PPT), etc.
MOFTI expressed that 27 participating tax officials will come from different affiliates of the MOF, including the Department of Planning, the Department of International Fiscal Affairs, the Customs Administration, the Taxation Administration, and the National Taxation Bureaus. Furthermore, Accountant Lin has especially designed case discussions in this workshop to motivate and deepen tax officials’ expertise and professional skills from an international perspective. The workshop is expected to benefit tax officials and further enable our policies to keep pace with world trends.
