About the Forum

It is our pleasure to invite you to Double Tax Treaties Forum on Friday, October 16th, 2015. The venue of DTT forum is the lecture hall RB209 at Rajska Building of the University of Economics, W. Churchill Sq. 4, Prague 3.

The effective application of double tax treaties can only take place with the simultaneous cooperation of all parties involved – the tax payer, tax administrator and tax advisor. This cooperation must exist on an international level, so as to eliminate possible inconsistencies in the application of the treaties. Seemingly clear principles of international taxation incorporated in the treaties (definitions, the right to tax, methods of eliminating double taxation) can become ambiguous when applied in specific cases, thus giving rise to undesirable double taxation or double non-taxation. Within the forum, a discussion will take place on the basic principles of the application of the treaties among experts from academia, state administration, business and tax advisory, both from the Czech Republic and abroad.

The aim of the forum is to promote international discussion on the essence, principles and current role of double tax treaties in general, as well as in the context of specific treaties.

The event should be of interest to people from:

- business,

- tax advisory,

- tax administration,

- academics and

- students of taxation.

The unique interconnection of all these groups  provides outstanding opportunity for all the participants to broaden their view on the given topic.

Within the given items on the forum agenda will be the opportunity for discussion with experts on international taxation.
