1. Can “Aspect Theory” Justify Overlapping of Central and State taxes?

2. Base Erosion and Profit Sharing (BEPS) – Issues and Solutions

Nations across the globe are increasingly looking at ways and means of preventing the erosion of their tax bases by entering into multilateral agreements and reforming municipal law, including transfer pricing regulations. In 2013, the OECD released two reports capturing the debate in this field.

The lack of uniform standards and ancillary issues of dispute resolution and tax treaty obligations have further complicated the contours of this issue. Authors are expected to identify and deal with the key problems in this area and suggest mitigation measures as well.
