The Nordic countries have much in common as far as legal culture and legal structure are concerned, even though only three of the five countries are members of the EU. However, there are also significant differences, not least within the field of tax law. This course provides a general overview of the Nordic tax systems by focusing on issues of special interest to students from non-Nordic countries. Attention is given to three main areas: first, issues of general theoretical interest, such as dual income tax; second, essential rules of particular importance for foreign investors and Nordic domestic companies investing abroad; and third, international tax issues which deal with the Nordic multilateral tax treaty, together with the main principles of international tax law in selected Nordic states.
