Courses:
India is developing fast as a major international center for cross-border trade and investment. As a country that favors source-based taxation, it largely follows the United Nations Model in its treaties. Moreover, its domestic tax law and practice often promote its national economic and social policies and are not determined by just fiscal considerations. This course will provide a broad understanding of the current Indian tax system. In particular, the course will cover the international tax framework (both law and practice) under domestic law and the role and interpretation of tax treaties based on various administrative and judicial decisions in India and rulings given by its Authority for Advance Rulings.
