2016 ITC Leiden - IFA India Academy Executive Program in International Tax Law

to be held in New Delhi (Noida)
25 April  –  30 April  (six days)

General information

Leiden University’s International Tax Center Leiden (`ITC Leiden´) and IFA India Academy will offer from 25 April through 30 April 2016 a one-week ITC Leiden – IFA India Academy Executive Program in International Tax Law (`ITC India Exec ITL Program´).

The ITC Program (five mornings of lectures and a full day of case studies) will be supplemented by workshops (five afternoons) organized by IFA India dealing with the Indian position on the morning subjects and to be delivered by Indian tax experts.

The ITC India Exec ITL Program has been set up for tax professionals who work in India with the government, in private practice or in a company’s tax department and who want to expand their knowledge of international tax law.  The reason to offer this program in addition to the existing 12-months Adv LLM Program offered by ITC Leiden in the Netherlands is that the latter program may be too lengthy and/or too costly (current tuition fee: € 19,000) for many interested experts from India.  Therefore, ITC Leiden and IFA India have taken the initiative to organize a one-week executive program which features the essentials of the tax treaties course of the 12-months ITC Leiden’s Adv LLM Program along with the Indian position on those topics. The program offered now is a `pilot´ program. It will be continued in 2017 either again as a one-week program or, depending on the interest, as a program of two or three weeks.

The Program comprises the following lectures and workshops: 

• Key concepts of international tax law
• Introduction to tax treaties and treaty residence
• Business profits taxation under tax treaties
• Dividends, interests & royalties and immovable property income & capital gains under tax treaties
• Income from employment, pensions, etc. under tax treaties
• Five fundamental rules on tax treaty application and various advanced case studies 

The ITC Leiden sections will be taught entirely by Prof. dr. Kees van Raad of ITC Leiden.
The IFA India section will be taught by renowned Indian tax experts.
