International Tax Update

The new environment for international taxation

Debt Structuring using Cash Flow Modelling Training Course

A one-day course

This course provides a new approach to corporate tax taking into account the substantial changes arising from the BEPS (Base Erosion Profit Shifting) project. This course takes the 15 objectives of the OECD and looks at the changes in the international tax system that have arisen as a consequence of BEPS and other developments. These include changes in rules regarding:
  • Residence
  • Permanent Establishment
  • Interest
  • Hybrid instruments
  • Transfer Pricing
  • Double Tax Treaties
  • Information requirements
This course looks at the way these recommendations are being implemented. It also looks at the changing international corporate tax environment.

This course will:

  • Update participants on current developments on the international effects of BEPS
  • Update participants of developments arising from case law
  • Update participants on the effect of BREXIT and Covid-19
  • Enable understanding of the methodologies used in transfer pricing
  • Enable participants to interpret and use double tax treaties

Participation by the delegates

The trainer is a Director of a consultancy company specialising in taxation, share scheme advice, reward and lecturing. He has developed a specialised share scheme service for small companies and advises FTSE companies on communication. The lecturing covers most aspects of Direct Taxation but his particular interests include employment taxation and transfer pricing, which poses unusual conceptual challenges.

Previous to this he worked for Henderson for nearly 9 years, leading the Share Schemes team for part of this time.

He took the level 7 CIPD Masters qualification whilst at Henderson.

Before Henderson, he was with Australia Mutual Provident (AMP) and helped set up one of the first Share Incentive Plans (SIP) for large companies in 2001. It was so unusual at the time that the Revenue phoned him up to find out how they could encourage more large companies to adopt SIP.

The trainer started his career in taxation and for the next 16 years worked in three of the “Big Four” accountancy firms. He ended up as a Senior Manager with Deloitte & Touche, having worked on issues such as profit related pay, share schemes, expatriate tax, tax investigations, reward management, US taxation, transfer pricing and corporate tax.

The creation of a planning system for tax professionals to control the transfer pricing planning process. This is an advanced course for those who understand the basic principles of transfer pricing.

This course is suitable for Finance Directors, Chief Financial Operators, Senior personnel within the taxation department and any other key personnel who have responsibilities for Transfer Pricing policies and their implementation.
