The Current Isssues in Taxation course will explore issues of topical importance in the field of taxation. The content will vary from year-to-year, and the course will be taught primarily by visiting lecturers, with contributions from Oxford-based academics.

In 2017-18, the topic will be ‘Tax Treaties in a post-BEPS world’. The focus of the course will be the current OECD work on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting and the impact of that work on tax treaties and other aspects of the international tax regime. The course will consider issues at the cutting edge of modern treaty problems and students will analyse some of the most difficult problems in tax treaties.

In 2017-18 the course will be taught by Professor Richard Vann, University of Sydney and Dr Glen Loutzenhiser
