Basic International Taxation provides a uniquely comprehensive overview of the basic principles of international taxation and considers these in the context of practical planning guidance. The analysis of the practical application of these principles is supported by a detailed review of current international tax practices by leading professionals in over sixty jurisdictions worldwide.

Volume I: Principles covers the basic principles of international taxation, an analysis of model tax treaties and a broad overview of various domestic tax systems. It also includes a glossary of terms and a copy of the OECD, UN and US model tax treaties. Volume II: Practice includes practical guidance on international tax planning techniques, the use of offshore financial centres for international tax planning, a brief country tax profile of over sixty countries, an analysis of anti-avoidance rules and an overview of some of the current issues in international taxation.
