Introduction

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting economies and societies in an unprecedented manner. Lockdowns, travel bans and other consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic give rise to a variety of tax issues, especially in situations involving cross-border elements. One key question is which state will retain the right to tax further to the COVID-19 occurrences. The OECD Secretariat has issued an analysis of tax treaties and the impact of the COVID-19 crisis as a guidance on these matters.

Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for all professionals. It should be especially relevant for those having cross-border exposures.

Session Outline

During our session, we will be discussing the OECD Guidance and ancillary matters.
