Determine the influence of OECD transfer pricing rules in matters of taxation

- Deciding on options for international tax planning purposes
This advanced course intends to offer insight in the actual application of tax laws in international business settings. To achieve this, this course builds on existing knowledge of international tax agreements, such as EU and OECD agreements. The focus of this course is not specifically on tax rules themselves, but rather on the application of these rules in the corporate setting. During this course the two main topics, international tax planning and transfer pricing, will be discussed in tutorial groups. Cases and presentations will also be used during the course. The end-goal of this course is that students are able to integrate both tax and non-tax skills in decision-making processes relating to tax agreements.
