[2] In the case where tax authority imposed global income tax on B, a single-person shareholder who made a 100 percent equity investment in Foreign Company A located in the Virgin Islands, a tax haven, deeming the amount calculated based on the earned surplus before appropriations, etc. as indicated in the financial statements prepared by Company A to be the distributable retained earnings under Article 17(1) of the former Adjustment of International Taxes Act, the case holding that: (a) distributable retained earnings shall be computed based on the financial statements apparently prepared under the generally accepted accounting principles in the resident state of Company A; (b) nevertheless, the lower court determined the tax disposition to be illegal on the erroneous premise that distributable retained earnings shall be computed by applying Korean corporate accounting standards; and (c) in so doing, it erred by misapprehending the pertinent legal doctrine
