On 12 June 2019, the Indian Government announced its ratification of the Multilateral Instrument (MLI) to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent Base Erosion and Profit Shifting. The MLI will modify provisions of existing Indian tax treaties. The impact of the MLI on India’s tax treaties is significant and requires careful consideration for various transactions, including existing investment structures and business arrangements.

In light of these developments, the International Taxation Committee has considered it prudent to hold a course to provide an overview of the BEPS implications, and also look at how India and other countries will implement BEPS outcomes in their domestic legal and tax systems.

The course will pay significant attention to the MLI, India’s position on the MLI provisions, covered tax treaties, options, notifications and the reservations made by the countries. Impact on Indian treaties will be discussed.

The course will also provide an update on outcome of the BEPS Project and the pending actions points.

Who Should Attend?

The course is suitable for practitioners in tax advisory firms, CFOs and tax heads in industry, and tax revenue officials.
