International tax issues can be incredibly complex as you often need to consider Australian tax rules as well as the application of one or more foreign tax systems.
In many cases it will also be necessary to work through the provisions of a double tax agreement (DTA) that Australia has with a foreign country. As DTAs generally override Australian tax rules, it is vital to ensure that you and your team are confident when it comes to working through DTAs.
The Double Tax Agreements Webinar walks you through the process that needs to be followed and the issues that can arise when applying DTAs in practice.
The language used in DTAs can be difficult to understand and even more difficult to apply to client scenarios. In this webinar, we take you through the process that should be followed and explain the common features of many of the DTAs that Australia has with other countries. In many cases, a DTA will provide your client with more favourable tax treatment – the problem is that practitioners often overlook the existence of DTAs or make mistakes when trying to apply DTAs to their clients.
