For example, to determine corporate tax, a subscriber simply picks a jurisdiction, picks a calendar tax year and inputs taxable income.  The calculator can also compute taxable income with user-friendly templates that start from either gross income or net income per books.  The withholding calculator computes withholding tax between two countries on a user-supplied amount of dividends, interest or royalties. Useful country-specific information is also provided to assist in selecting the best tax rate for a transaction.  Results for up to five jurisdictions or transactions can be compared on one screen.

“These computational tools provide valuable cross-border information that will assist multi-nationals and other interested parties in their international tax planning, and provide a vehicle for tracking a corporation’s global effective tax rate and minimize it to the extent possible,” said CCH Director of Publishing for International Taxation Mark Friedlich. “This product will enhance productivity and ensure that tax professionals have the most accurate, current tool available to perform their international tax planning and compliance responsibilities,” Friedlich added.
