Dear Members and Friends of SwissCham Shanghai,

Most multinational corporations (MNCs) in China will use the technology and trademarks of offshore companies in order to conduct business in China. This often involves cross-border royalty payments, which have been a hot topic of concern for the customs and tax authorities. The issue of whether the royalty payments will be taxed by the customs and tax authorities and thus trigger double taxation is always a concern for MNCs in China. In addition, whether failure to declare royalties related to imported goods to customs in a timely manner triggers a customs investigation and, ultimately, whether administrative penalties will be imposed.

In this seminar, SwissCham is delighted to invite Philip Lazare, Partner at Shaohe Law Firm and Qin Zhu, Senior Associate at Shaohe Law Firm, to give some tips on the key points of customs and tax compliance that MNCs should be aware of in relation to cross-border royalty payments. The speakers will also give advice on how to avoid "double taxation" of cross-border royalty payments in China. Moreover, since there is a big difference in the way of thinking and approach between customs investigation and tax investigation, we will share our experience in assisting clients in responding to customs investigations of cross-border royalty payments.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to this webinar.

Best regards,

Your SwissCham Team




在此次的研讨会上,中国瑞士商会很荣幸邀请到上海劭合律师事务所的Philip Lazare和朱琴律师,他们将对MNCs在跨境支付特许权使用费方面应注意的海关和税务合规要点给出一些提示。他们将就如何避免跨境支付特许权使用费在中国被 "双重征税 "给出一些建议。因为海关调查与税务机关的调查的思路和方式存在很大差异,两位还将分享在协助客户应对海关对跨境特许权使用费的调查方面的经验。
