What is international tax?
We at Sheltons Group refer to local tax, local international tax, and international tax.
By ‘local tax’ we mean matters with no international element. Example: Our Malta office advises on whether a Maltese company is taxed on the gain on a sale of an asset when the contract was entered or the date the payment was received.
By ‘local international tax’ we refer to advice on the local country’s tax on international transactions and on its treaties. Example: Our Australian office advises on Australian withholding taxes on interest paid to a German lender.
By ‘international tax’ we mean matters that have nothing to do with the countries where we operate. Example: Our international tax team advises a client in Canada on how to best structure their ownership of newly developed intellectual property which they plan to license to unrelated parties in ten different Asian countries.
