Microsoft PowerPoint - 3 Tuesday - Session 3 (Characterization issues) 1 Characterization issues under domestic law and treaties http://www.un.org/esa/ffd/ Capacity Building Unit Financing for Development Office Department of Economic and Social Affairs Tuesday, 7 November 2017 (Session 2) 2 Overview • Characterization issues under domestic law • Characterization issues under treaties • Distinction between rents and royalties and proceeds of sale • Distinction between rents and payments for services • Distinction between royalties and payments for services • Treatment of payment for software • Treatment of various digital economy payments • Treatment of broadcasting payments 3 Characterization issues under domestic law • Need to characterize different types of payments under domestic law often depends on: – Whether capital gains are treated differently from other income – Whether rent / royalties are business income or are treated differently – Which payments to non-residents are subject to withholding tax and at what rate – The distinctions that exist for VAT purposes concerning: • Taxable and exempt supplies • Place of supply rules 4 Characterization issues under treaties • Need to characterize different types of payments under treaties arises from the schedular nature of treaties which have different rules for – Business profits (Art. 7) – Royalties (Art. 12) – Payments for certain services (Art. 12A) – Capital gains (Art. 13) – Income from independent personal services (Art. 14) – Entertainers and Artistes (Art. 17) – Other income (Art. 21) 2 5 Distinction between rents and royalties and proceeds of sale • Rent and royalties are consideration for the use of or the right to use tangible or intangible property • Proceeds from the sale of property are consideration received for the transfer of ownership of the property itself, not just the right to use the property • Under most countries’ domestic tax law and under treaties, proceeds from the sale of movable property are only taxable only if the non-resident carries on business activities in a country and meet a threshold requirement such as a PE or fixed base (proceeds from sale of immovable property, however, are usually taxable) 6 Distinction between rents and royalties and proceeds of sale • The distinction between sales and leases or licences of movable, immovable or other property or rights is usually found in a country’s domestic civil or commercial law • In any particular case, it must be determined which country’s law should apply to determine the fundamental nature of the transactions, the rights and obligations of the parties and the character of any payments made • The distinction is important for tax treaties because source taxation will often be allowed for rents and royalties but not for proceeds of sale 7 Distinction between rents and royalties and proceeds of sale • From a base-erosion perspective, the most worrying outcome occurs where the payments are deductible in the source country and no tax is imposed on the non- resident recipient of the payments • Countries should be aware that rights for the use of property (tangible and intangible) can be disguised as partial sales of property rights in order to avoid withholding taxes at source • These results can be achieved with intangible property (e.g. sale of the exclusive right to use a trade mark for 10 years in a given country) or tangible property (e.g. sale of property for a limited period of time, such as two weeks per year). 8 Distinction between rents and payments for services • Rent and royalties involve payments for the right to use existing property for a period of time, whereas payments for most services involve consideration for activities performed by the service provider • Domestic law usually applies to determine whether payments are for the right to use tangible or intangible property or for a service; countries may therefore characterize the same payment differently (e.g. Pierre Boulez decision of the US Tax Court) 3 9 Distinction between rents and payments for services • The distinction between rents and royalties and payments for services is particularly problematic under treaties that do not include provisions similar the new Art. 12A on fees for technical services: – Intangible property or rights are often used in the provision of services. (...) 15 Treatment of broadcasting payments • State S has been awarded the organisation of the 2013 tournament of WIFAA, an international federation established in State R which is the world governing body for a major sport • WIF-TV (also a resident of State R) is the wholly-owned broadcasting subsidiary of WIFAA.
