Course Overview

Unlawful practices in recent times pertaining to taxation tend to misuse the ambiguity of various tax rules and Double Tax Treaties (DTTs). Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) avoidance strategies enable large enterprises to minimise their tax burden, eroding government revenue bases by strategically transferring profits.

Lately, the frequency of BEPS has come under intensified scrutiny, particularly in high-tax territories. The idea behind BEPS is to close gaps in international taxation for companies that allegedly avoid taxation or reduce the tax burden in their home country by engaging in tax inversions.

This course explores the various action plans of Base Erosion and Profit Shifting, what they deal with, and how BEPS is applicable on tax planning structures that are embraced by large organisations today.

Why is this ‘Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS)’ course of particular importance? Most BEPS schemes end up in double nontaxation outcomes, where income is not taxed at all or at minimal rates, failing to display a firm’s honest fiscal position at the jurisdictional site of created value.

Accordingly, tax authorities and international bodies like the OECD are advancing changes to existing rules. The modifications aim to address weaknesses in the current global system.

This Zoe training course will empower you with the knowledge to gain an understanding of how the BEPS influences fiscal policy officials locally and internationally.

Course Objectives

Upon finishing this course effectively, participants will be able to:

  • Learn about different action plans for Base Erosion and Profit Shifting
  • Recognise the key provisions of each of the OECD Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Action Plans that address the weaknesses in the international tax framework governing cross border transactions
  • Distinguish the related suggestions requiring a shift by tax policymakers to reinstate faith in the system, guarantee that profits are taxed where economic activities take place and create truthful economic value
  • Discover the emergence of competing sets of international tax standards, and the replacement of the current consensus-based framework by unilateral measures
  • Assess action plans to provide countries with local and international tools that will better align rights to tax with economic activity
