International and Withholding Tax Law Firm

International taxation is the study or determination of tax on a person or business subject to the tax laws of different countries, or the international aspects of an individual country's tax laws as the case may be. Governments usually limit the scope of their income taxation in some manner territorially or provide for offsets to taxation relating to extraterritorial income. The manner of limitation generally takes the form of a territorial, residence-based, or exclusionary system. Some governments have attempted to mitigate the differing limitations of each of these three broad systems by enacting a hybrid system with characteristics of two or more.

Withholding tax is a machinery provision applicable to the taxpayer on the income which is chargeable under the Income Tax Act 1961 to enable easy collection and recovery of tax from payments made to non-residents and foreign companies. The concept is based on source rule where the tax is deducted in the country from which the payment is made.
