This was followed by a quick summary of the taxation landscape in the region, with the focus on Singapore. Next, Mr Loh discussed various tax incentives offered by the Singapore Government, such as the Development and Expansion Incentive, International/Regional Headquarters Award, Pioneer Incentive and Global Trader Programme. Mr Loh then provided useful and relevant understanding on how to select the appropriate tax incentives and how to deal with the negotiation of tax incentives with the relevant government agencies on behalf of his multinational corporation clients. He ended the session by taking the participants through examples of intellectual property structures.
