Similar to traditional transactions, E-business involves the transfer of products and the sourcing of incomes among various countries, and various taxpayers. In this regard, each individual government should have rights of levying taxes on E-business as does the traditional transactions. However, due to the intrinsic features of E-business such as openness, crossing border and no boundary, the traditional taxation principle is facing tremendous impingement and not positive. Thus, under the prevailing circumstances, lacking of the relevant tax regulations results in loss of tax revenue.
