Why Should You Attend

This course explores international corporate taxation and will help delegates to understand the complexities of international tax and adopt best practice approaches to transfer pricing.

The impact of cross-border transactions on revenue collection, and the design of effective tax systems, should be of key importance to tax policy makers and administrators. Structures and prices are not always set fairly, resulting in significant implications for the collection of taxes. At the same time, tax systems and administration can deter the inbound investment that can be critical for economic growth.

Days one and two will focus on the relationship of corporate taxation to investment, with particular attention to the role of international tax treaties. Days three and four will look at mechanisms for collecting tax, with particular attention to the effect of transfer pricing rules that address pricing distortions in transactions within multinationals. The last day will also be spent on looking at case studies- particularly from Africa and discussion of any questions delegates have regarding this very important subject.

  • Identify the key direct tax principles that underpin an effective framework for cross-border taxation
