Global Expansion

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.

While the OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) task force has driven a wave of regulatory change in the area of transfer pricing, equally important for clients is the challenges under the OECD’s Common Reporting Standard for private entities with passive investments.


We have extensive experience with advising clients in a range of industries in relation to tax implications of establishing business in the United States. We work seamlessly with our U.S colleagues to properly integrate a client’s affairs both in Australia and the United States.


Through our office in Singapore, we have extensive advisory and compliance capabilities for clients wishing to establish businesses in the leading Asian financial and trading hub.


Our UK office can assist clients with UK and European business expansion and our professionals at CST London and CST Sydney are focused on providing integrated advice for clients wishing to have a presence in one of the world’s financial capitals.
