Permanent Establishments (PEs) are a key facet of international taxation. They
constitute the crucial threshold for the assignment of taxing rights to a
jurisdiction in all cases of enterprises operating in more than one country.
The issue of whether there is a PE, and how much profit should be allocated to
it, is an increasingly important factor in tax planning, tax accounting, tax
compliance, and related tax risk management. This academically rigorous yet
thoroughly practical work provides comprehensive guidance on a variety of
complex PE issues. Its initial chapters analyse the latest OECD developments
in the context of Articles 5 and 7 of the OECD Model Tax Convention (2010
update) while 19 country chapters cover domestic PE issues as well as
country-specific treaty developments from a practical perspective.
The work consists of two parts:
Permanent Establishment in the OECD Model Tax Convention This section
features a comprehensive – and highly practical – analysis of the concept of
permanent establishment (PE), particularly as it’s embodied in Article 5 of
the Model Convention. In a departure from virtually all the current
literature, the presentation affords the reader a truly actionable tool to
optimize decision making as it relates to PE in a “real world” setting. The
work initially concentrates on the PE-related issues of most concern to
corporate interests: the notion of PE and the allocation of profits.
Country Perspectives This part consists of country-specific PE profiles
designed to facilitate the reader’s decision making by allowing easy
comparison of critical PE-related data over an array of key national
jurisdictions. Countries covered: Australia, Austria, Belgium, China, Denmark,
Estonia, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands,
Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States.
