It is widely known that a unified approach to interpretation and application of international tax treaty rules may benefit not only the countries/parties to a certain tax treaty, but also their taxpayers, as well as international trade and investments in general. This topic is therefore an ongoing concern for many tax practitioners, representatives of international organizations and public officers and tax scholars.
The “Tax Treaty Case Law around the Globe” conference was held at Tilburg University on 15-16 May 2020. This international event took place for the ninth time and was jointly organized by the European Tax College of Tilburg University and the Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law of WU. The conference was dedicated to the analysis of the most important cases on international tax treaty law decided in 2019 in different tax jurisdictions worldwide. Thirty-two cases were presented by outstanding tax experts from more than 20 different countries. Each presentation was followed by an intensive and fruitful discussion. The participants of the conference compared the interpretation approaches existing in both OECD and non-OECD member countries and came up with comprehensive conclusions and suggestions. The main scientific results of the conference are presented in this book.
Each report in this book is dedicated to a court case or a number of cases on a particular article of the tax treaty at issue (often based on the OECD or UN Model) which was decided in a certain jurisdiction in 2019. Every report is structured in a similar way: the facts of the case, the decision and reasoning of the court and the observations and conclusions of the authors, including the possible impact of the decision on international tax law development in the respective country and other jurisdictions, are presented.
This clear and concise structure enables a solid and accessible overview of the global case law on tax treaty application in 2019. The systematic structure of each report allows for different tax treaty case law to be studied and compared in a comprehensive and efficient way.
The editors believe that the reports presented in this book are of high value and will therefore be of particular interest for tax consultants, public officers, academics and all those interested in international tax law. The fact that many domestic decisions are otherwise available only in a national language makes the materials contained in this book even more valuable.
