This in-person course looks at how international tax operates and at double tax treaties from primarily a UK tax standpoint.

The course is fully updated to take account of the changes to the structure of international taxation arising from the BEPS (Base Erosion Profit Shifting) changes and the adoption of these principles. It also examines the impact of Brexit and the BEPS 2.0 project.

This course is suitable for anyone who has to deal with internationally mobile individuals, non-UK domiciles and multi-national companies.
