Inhalte der LV

The course deals with the OECD’s work aimed at countering aggressive tax planningand Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) activities by multinational enterprises. It discusses the preludes to the OECD/G20 BEPS project, i.e. therise of tax planning schemes through which multinational enterprises try toreduce their tax burden by making use of loopholes in the international taxation framework. We will see examples of such tax planning schemes and examine the OECD’s response to it. In particular, we will discuss the recommendations made by the OECD in the framework of the BEPS project with the aim of reducingthe possibilities for aggressive tax planning. We will also discuss parallel efforts within the European Union to fight aggressive tax planning and tax avoidance.
