Over the last several years, the Korean tax authorities have continued to increase the intensity and scope of tax audits.
The tax authorities have extended the coverage of tax audits to stock transfer, related party transactions, restructuring and international transactions.
This increases the possibility of additional tax assessment and liabilities and requires an expert understanding of tax laws and audit processes.
