Message from the Co-chairs

Dear AMCHAM Members,

The draft Enforcement Decrees to the 2020 Tax Reform Act released by the Ministry of Economy and Finance in early January finally took effect in February 11, and additional regulatory guidance is expected by the end of February. The 2020 Tax Reform Act appears to continue the path the Korean government took since last year of providing additional tax incentives to Korean businesses due to the slowdown of the Korean economy. However, in so far as the foreign companies and foreign invested Korean companies are concerned, there appears to be an increase effort to raise additional taxes as well as new measures designed to combat tax-avoidance transactions that were identified by the OECD BEPS Action Plan. In particular, provisions have been introduced to specifically target cross-border transactions, including rules requiring reporting and disclosure. Mr. Ted Kim and Mr. Tae Hyoung Kim will provide an overview of the key international tax law changes that can potentially impact multinational companies and other foreign investors investing in or doing business with Korea.

Please join us in what should be an informative session that will provide AMCHAM members a general understanding of the key tax changes in 2020 that may impact their businesses in Korea.
