CCH has introduced an online product that provides tax research and compliance information for doing business in emerging markets around the world.

Worldwide Tax Rates and Answers: Emerging Markets offers individual national and local tax rates for 12 countries: China, India, Mexico, Russia, Brazil, South Africa, Israel, Argentina, Taiwan, Chile, Vietnam and South Korea. The product includes tax forms and instructions in English and up-to-date answers to questions about preparing taxes in these countries.

The product also keeps track of legislation abroad to predict future tax rates. Users can add BNA International content to supplement their research.

World Tax Rates uses CCH's Smart Chart technology to provide access to tax rates and questions. Questions and answers cover subjects such as corporate income tax, transfer pricing, withholding tax, value-added taxes, business formation, capital gains, and currency, along with the relevant citations. Users also get access to local tax professionals via e-mail and phone if they have further questions.

A one-year, single-user subscription costs $2,249. BNA International portfolios cost an extra $1,000. For more information, go to
