Project Description

In recognition of the growing importance of the Sino-Australian economic relationship, incompatible tax rules have emerged as significant barriers to trade and investment between the two countries. This project will identify tax and administrative impediments to capital and labour movement and develop a blueprint for unilateral and bilateral reform by the Australian and Chinese governments to construct fairer, simpler and more efficient tax systems. The project outputs will assist tax authorities, multinational enterprises, expatriate employees and investors in both countries.
