Taiwan can expect lowered business income tax to encourage corporate innovation
With the Statute for Upgrading Industries set to expire at the end of 2009, Republic of China (Taiwan) Premier Wu Den-yih said to members of the business community at the Tenth Industrial Excellence Award Conference on November 24 that the executive and legislative branches of government had reached consensus that, starting in 2010, the business tax will be reduced from 25 percent to 20 percent to encourage corporate innovation. And if large-scale enterprises result from industry innovation and integration and establish corporate headquarters in Taiwan, the government will provide greater incentives.
The premier also affirmed the track record of domestic industries standing firmly by Taiwan through good and bad economic times. He encouraged the industrial sector to invest in businesses on the island and to engage in research and development so as to boost Taiwan’s competitiveness and keep it forever among the strongest of competitors in the global arena.
