IBFD/UN Training Workshop on Tax Treaty Negotiation
IBFD International Tax Training hosts an annual training workshop on Tax Treaty Negotiation jointly with the UN, in view of the obvious linkages between the work of the two organizations and the natural partnership that exists between their respective missions and mandates. The main focus of the workshop is on the policy issues that countries face and the choices that they have to make when negotiating bilateral tax treaties. The workshop highlights key differences between treaty provisions based on the UN Model Convention and the OECD Model Convention. Participants of the workshop include government officials and tax professionals from all over the world.
