Permanent Establishment

The OECD gives a general definition of the term “permanent establishment” (“PE”) which brings out its essential characteristics, i.e. a distinct “situs”, a “fixed place of business”. It defines the term “permanent establishment” as a fixed place of business, through which the business of an enterprise is wholly or partly carried on. This definition, therefore, contains the following conditions:

  • The existence of a “place of business”, i.e. a facility such as premises or, in certain instances, machinery or equipment.
  • This place of business must be “fixed”, i.e. it must be established at distinct place with a certain degree of permanence.
  • The carrying on of the business of the enterprise through this fixed place of business. This means usually that persons who, in one way or another, are dependent on the enterprise (personnel/staff) conduct the business of the enterprise in the country in which the fixed place is situated

IIS has established a PE offering to meet these requirements:

  • Leased office space, this includes a fully executed lease and a monthly utility invoice
  • A fixed telephone number with reception services (with message forwarding)
  • A mail address (with mail forwarding)
  • The provision of personnel/staff (subject to monthly minimum hours)
