Today, more and more companies’ and individuals’ tax matters cross borders. These multi-jurisdictional transactions and structures are typically governed by tax treaties. Although there are three basic model treaties (the OECDs, the US’ and the UNs), each uses many of the same concepts.
On May 23rd, 2017, I will be hosting a webinar on Tax Treaties. This introductory course will provide the viewer with a basic understanding of these concepts.
Program Level: basic/introductory
Advance Preparation: none
Learning Objections: to provide the viewer/participant with a basic, rudimentary knowledge of the OECD Model Tax Treaty.
The program will cover the following concepts:
1. Introduction: a history of tax treaties, taxing nexus, treaty applications and taxes covered
2. Residency for a Person
3. Residency for a Corporation
4. Permanent Establishment
5. Income Statement Items
