The business profits of a resident of a Contracting State shall not be taxable in the Philippines unless that enterprise of a resident of a Contracting State carries on business in the Philippines through a permanent establishment. 27) What is the concept of permanent establishment (PE) as used in tax treaties? PE is defined as a fixed place of business through which the business of the enterprise is wholly or partly carried on. The concept of permanent establishment is used to determine the rights of a Contracting State to tax the business profits of enterprises of the other Contracting State. Under this concept, profits of an enterprise of a Contracting State are not taxable by the other Contracting State, unless the enterprise carries on business through a permanent establishment situated in the other Contracting State. A list of places, circumstances, and activities which constitute a permanent establishment is provided under the different tax treaties which the Philippines has with other countries. 28) What is the Most-Favored-Nation clause (MFN)? The appearance of the MFN clause in the tax treaty means that a Contracting State will grant to a resident of the other Contracting State the same lower rate of tax or exemption the former has granted to a resident of a third State. 29) What is the tax treatment on immovable property? Income from an immovable property is taxable in the Contracting State where the property is situated. This term is generally defined under the domestic laws of the Contracting States. However, this is further defined in the tax treaties. 30) How are capital gains taxed under our tax treaties? Gains from the alienation of immovable property or movable property forming part of the business property of a permanent establishment or pertaining to a fixed base are taxed in the Philippines if the immovable property or permanent establishment or fixed base is located here.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
