10 - 12 Oct 2018Practical Aspects of Tax Treaties
- Practical Aspects of Tax Treaties
Overview and learning objectives
With increasing cross-border investments, taxpayers may be confronted with double taxation. For over a century, states have concluded treaties to avoid such double taxation. In recent years, there has been growing attention to the use of these double taxation treaties in international tax planning. This course deals with all relevant aspects in the application of tax treaties from a practical angle and discusses important topics, such as permanent establishment and transfer pricing, and the impact on these topics from the latest developments following the OECD BEPS Reports and the Multilateral Instrument (MLI), which – once implemented – will lead to adjustments of many tax treaties, as well as the most recent model conventions of the OECD and the United Nations. The course will consist of a combination of lectures and case studies
This is an interactive course with a maximum of 40 participants. Participants will receive access to online supplementary materials.
