In today’s world, where it has become fairly easy for a taxpayer to move back and forth from one country to another, it has become quite a common tax strategy, especially among wealthy individuals and multinational companies, to transfer their residence, income and assets abroad mainly to reduce tax burden. Focusing on this issue, author Naoki Matsuda shares the product of intense research to address various “Tax Strategy vs. Countermeasures” (published by Xlibris).

Many countries have lately been struggling to come up with countermeasures to cope effectively with globalizing and sophisticating tax strategies. This book looks into and compares some noteworthy countermeasures adopted in such jurisdictions as US, UK, EU, India, China (including Hong Kong) and Japan. The author categorizes, for the sake of comparative analysis, those countermeasures into the following: (i) countermeasures against tax avoidance, (ii) countermeasures against taxpayer migration, (iii) countermeasures against income/assets shifting, (iv) measures for effective grasp of income/assets.

In today’s society, tax strategies to reduce tax burden are appealing to many taxpayers while many countries have been struggling to find and adopt countermeasures that could reduce their appeal or cope effectively with them. It is Matsuda’s main goal to propose ways to restructure Japan’s countermeasures against tax strategies, but each chapter also looks into countermeasures adopted in the abovementioned jurisdictions to make comparative analysis and draw insight from them.

“No other book has gone so far as to compare so many countries’ countermeasures against tax strategies,” Matsuda remarks on what makes his book unique. “And this book does not stop there because it analyzes and compares their similarities and differences to draw insights to make several proposals for restructuring Japan’s countermeasures.”
