    Course Description

    The workshop program is designed for senior officials, managers and executives from developing country tax administrations who would like to have a high-level understanding how their organization may successfully deal with international tax risks and wish to learn international good practices in this domain.

    More specifically, the workshop presents key concepts of international tax administration, highlight international tax compliance risks and treatment strategies, introduce participants to the main challenges developing country tax administrations currently face in international tax administration and present the basic management, organizational and administrative good practices that (along with a strong policy and legal framework) could enable tax administrations to address those challenges.

    The workshop's approach is strategic, it is not designed to elaborately cover international tax technical issues. While the workshop focuses on tax administration, a few sessions will include presentations on the tax policy and legal aspects of international taxation.

    The program combines sessions on fundamental issues with presentations on more advanced topics such the implementation of the new Pillar Two solution and other global developments. The lectures will provide opportunities for Q&A and peer-to-peer sharing of experiences.
