Issue 56 - October 2020

The COVID-19 epidemic continues to preoccupy governments and business throughout the world, and in this edition, we include articles on COVID-19–related implications for the United Kingdom’s Corporate Criminal Offences legislation, and enhanced loss carry-back measures in the Czech Republic.

Other tax developments of international interest continue to take place, and we look at the main announcements in Australia’s Federal 2020/2021 Budget, the corporate income tax consequences of the Federal BEAT waiver election in the United States, the launch of Variable Capital Companies in Singapore, and other important news and changes.
