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.
