IASB and FASB released an exposure draft on lease accounting on Aug 17, 2010.
The exposure draft would eliminate the existing distinction between finance lease and operating lease,
and introduce a right-of-use model where all lease-related assets and liabilities are recognized in balance sheet.
The 2010 Tax Reform introduces a group taxation regime which is applicable to “group companies”,
domestic companies that are wholly owned by a domestic company, foreign company or individual.
Under the group taxation regime, the recognition of capital gains or losses from the transfer of assets between “group companies” is deferred.
Also as for donation between “group companies”, the donated amount for a donator is not deductible, and for a donatee is not taxable, respecitively.
The above amendments are applicable to the transactions between wholly-owned domestic companies of a foreign company made on or after October 1, 2010,
but not applicable between a foreign company and its wholly-owned domestic company.
