Double Tax Agreements and International Tax Law | UWA Law School | Tuesday, 24. September 2019

This unit examines the core principles of international tax law and is not based upon Australian tax law. It examines these core principles as they apply around the world and the policy issues supporting them. It thoroughly examines double taxation agreements with a focus on the current version of the OECD model. It considers global issues in relation to transfer pricing and thin capitalisation rules as well as the topic of international tax avoidance. It also considers current debates in relation to base erosion and profit shifting.
The course will be led by Professor Nolan Sharkey. Nolan is the coordinator of Taxation Law at UWA Law School. He is a barrister of the NSW Supreme Court and the High Court and continues to give periodic tax technical advice. Nolan's current research focuses on international tax and the interaction of income tax laws of different countries, particularly Australia, China, Singapore and Hong Kong.
