Indirect transfer tax from an Indian perspective: a caution point for global reorganisations

with Mukesh Butani

This year saw the Indian Supreme Court produce a landmark verdict in the Vodafone case, India's most debated tax case. The ruling has presented huge implications for the Indian government, resulting in a drastically changed environment for multinationals operating in India.

With more governments taking a bullish stance in pursuit of what they view as a fair tax take, Mukesh Butani, a leading expert in the practical application of international tax law in India, will explain how the Department of Revenue has already responded to the ruling with major legislative changes to the tax regime for foreign entities obtaining value from activities in India.

Join us to learn more, including:

  • the background to the Court's decision, and its reading of international tax law
  • the Revenue's response, and what this means for the future of global reorganisations
  • case studies and grey areas in implementing the new law

The fee for this event is £20 (free for International Tax Affiliates).

Entry is open to ADIT students and holders, and anyone else who is interested in international tax.
