Trawling the international tax system
International tax arbitrage has come under intense scrutiny since the global financial crisis, and is usually portrayed as a form of aggressive tax avoidance. Press coverage has often shown little understanding of the distinction between tax avoidance and tax evasion, describing the legitimate behaviour of taxpayer banks, financial institutions and multinational businesses in emotive terms and often inaccurately.
This book aims to look at tax arbitrage, and demystify its practice.
An International Perspective
This book's principal theme is the taxation of permanent establishments, taking as its starting point the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) model convention on the avoidance of double taxation, and examining how the Indian courts and India's law-makers have interpreted the rules governing attribution of profits.

VAT and Customs Treatment of Imports, Exports, Intra-EU Transactions, and Cross -border supplies of Services in the Digital Age
Trading Places? VAT and Customs Treatment of Imports, Exports, Intra-EU Transactions, and Cross -border Supplies of Services in the Digital Age introduces the main concepts and trade facilitation reliefs that businesses must understand if they are to trade internationally with the least intervention and disruption from the Tax Authorities. The worst-case scenario is for an importer to have their goods still within Customs’ control, instead of being where they are needed because the correct procedures have not been followed. Allied to this is the need for businesses to secure the release of their goods paying as little import duty and import VAT as possible. Whilst import VAT is recoverable by most businesses it is still a major cash-flow cost, which has to be funded. Import duty is an absolute cost so importers must review all available means to reduce or remove the duty payable.
The book highlights the means of importing goods and arriving at the Customs value on which import duty and import VAT are computed. It also provides commentary on export procedures and the VAT treatment of intra-EU trading, including potential fiscal barriers to exploiting non-UK markets.
This second edition introduces the myriad rules concerning intangible services and the taxation of downloaded digitised products. Whilst the rules can be said to be easy to follow, as ever with VAT understanding the exact nature of the service, how it is provided, and where it is consumed are all fundamental problems to be grappled with.
It also covers the Union Customs Code, which came into effect on 1 May 2016.
