The profit on trade and investment within national borders are with no doubt subject to income tax. The way in which those incomes are taxed is based upon a country’s domestic tax policy. The same principle also applies to international trades and investments.
As a country’s trade and commerce become increasingly internationalized, the taxation of international transactions becomes ever more important. Once an entity extends its arm beyond its national borders, it is most likely to fall within the ambit of the tax laws of another country. The way in which that country’s tax laws impact the entity will have consequences for the manner in which the entity is taxed domestically which in turn affect the overall profitability & cash-flow of the entity and its ultimate holding companies.
