This workshop is designed to provide tax professionals with the necessary technical and business English skills for work in their field. We will focus primarily on topics relevant to international tax law and cross border issues.
Improving one’s business and technical English skills is essential for advising foreign clients, collaborating with non-German colleagues, and staying apprised of international or global developments through English journals (articles) – or contributing to English journals.
Participants will be taken through the necessary terminology and nuance to handle client meetings in English. The basics of double taxation treaties in English will then be explained and discussed. We will cover the basics of EU tax law as well as the OECD’s BEPS project and discuss implementation and practical relevance in Germany. Finally we will practice discussing key aspects of transfer pricing.
