Roy Rohatgi on International Taxation is an introductory text for practitioners and students of international tax law. For many years, this two-volume title has enjoyed a reputation as one of the leading handbooks in this complex area of taxation.
With the latest rewrite of this seminal work, the authors provide in-depth treatment of the key topics in international tax, building up from detailed explanation of the basic concepts, all the way to solid analysis of the complex transactional issues.
Volume 1, Principles, lays the foundation for this two-volume set. It examines international taxation through the prism of domestic law, explaining the conflicts of laws that give rise to issues seeking resolution in the international arena. This volume also introduces the reader to the world of tax treaties, crucially focusing on income and capital tax treaties, as well as on the main treaties that concern the administration and collection of taxes in the international sphere.
In its analysis of income and capital tax treaties, this book takes the OECD Model Convention as the starting point and enriches the discussion with examples from real-life treaties, as well as by contrasting provisions from other Model treaties. The book is rounded out by a generous analysis of jurisprudence from all over the world. What the reader gets is a thoroughly researched handbook, explaining the key principles of international taxation, buttressed with real-world practice and written with practical application in mind.
This volume is one of the first authoritative works to include analysis of the provisions of the updated OECD Model Convention (2017) and UN Model Convention (2017).
