Asia Pacific Insurance Tax News

PwC Asia Pacific Insurance Tax News is a periodic publication that offers insights into trends and developments in insurance and taxation in the Asia Pacific region.

October 2012

A common theme for this year is tax issues surrounding investments of insurance companies across Asia Pacific. Although investment income probably is the largest income item in the profit and loss accounts of insurance companies apart from premium income, it may not always receive sufficient attention in an insurance company's tax planning agenda. Accordingly, we see a lot of tax opportunities, and at the same time significant tax risks, associated with how insurers carry out their investment activities.

The fifth edition of the Asia Pacific Insurance Tax News offers insights of the tax issues surrounding investments of insurance companies across Asia Pacific, including Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Singapore and Taiwan.
