This course provides a comprehensive and in depth study of Double Tax Agreements (DTAs). It addresses the influence of international models on the formulation of DTAs. The primary focus is on the OECD model which will be examined in detail, emphasising key issues such as treaty design and interpretation, dual residency, treatment of passive income flows and capital gains, and mechanisms to alleviate double tax. This will be followed by an examination of specific DTAs so as to illustrate key differences and similarities. The practical application of the DTAs will be considered in the context of numerous examples.
