CST can advise clients that are either looking to establish operations overseas or need to restructure.

Our focus is on ensuring that structures are tax compliant both in Australia and internationally, with tax risks mitigated and the effects of international double taxation reduced.

We can demonstrate how Australia’s holding company regime can create excellent opportunities for profit repatriation and we can advise on how to ensure funding arrangements comply with the tax laws.

We are specialists in assisting private enterprises comply with the controlled foreign corporation rules (CFC) rules, particularly for privately owned enterprises where these rules are not well understood.
