Digital Economy Taxation Roundtable Forum

Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hangzhou

16 October 2018 - 26 October 2018, 15:00 - 17:00, HKST

The digital economy in China is booming. With Chinese consumers embracing digitalization, traditional business models increasingly being disrupted, and the government seeking to promote investment in new technologies, domestic Chinese tax policies are having to adapt and respond to these changes. In this seminar, we look at many of the common tax issues arising in the digital economy sector, and provide practical guidance as to how those issues may be resolved, and the future direction of those policies.

In addition, with many of the large Chinese digital economy companies now seeking to ‘go Global’, digitalization makes it increasingly possible for those businesses to reach markets in jurisdictions where they have no or relatively little physical presence. This is exactly the fundamental tax issue that governments around the world are seeking to respond to. Policymakers are focusing on taxing where value is created (direct taxes) and where benefits are consumed (indirect taxes and digital taxes). The result of this is that Chinese digital economy businesses are increasingly are facing tax obligations globally.

These developments not only impact on pure digital economy business models, but also traditional retailers, banks, payment processors, FinTech businesses, cloud computing, gaming and other online content providers.

Agenda for October - November 2018 roundtable forums

KPMG is at the forefront of these changes and is arranging quarterly roundtable forums specifically designed for digital economy businesses, as well as traditional businesses which are adapting their models for the digital economy. In these sessions, we will update you on the current state of play and expected future taxation developments in the digital economy, both in China and internationally and covering both direct and indirect taxes. The agenda for the first edition of the roundtable forums is outlined below. Since China’s Individual Income Tax reform will take effect on 1 January 2019, we will also specifically focus on this area in this first edition.
