Client/Legal Alert
On 18 March 2015, the State Administration of Taxation of China introduced measures to deny income tax deductions for certain service fees and royalties paid by Chinese companies to their overseas affiliates. These highly controversial measures were published in Bulletin 16 and appear to stem from China’s initiatives to implement rules that it views as related to the OECD Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project. Bulletin 16 targets service fee and royalty payments made to affiliated companies outside China that do not undertake functions and risks and/or lack economic substance. In the case of royalties, the focus is also on payments to companies that have legal ownership of the underlying intangible assets, such as intellectual property, but have not contributed sufficiently to the creation of value in the intangibles.

On 11 March a federal district court dealt a blow to Delaware’s audit practice of estimating unclaimed property liability when the court allowed constitutional challenges to the practice to proceed over the state’s motion to dismiss. Although the court also denied plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment, Judge Sue Robinson clearly signaled serious reservations about the constitutionality of Delaware’s approach.

This article discusses the federal district court’s decision to allow a challenge to Delaware’s unclaimed property audit practices to continue. Although the litigation has a long way to go, early indications are that the case could result in a landmark decision that would be welcomed by holders.
