Course objective is to familiarize students with the way in which the tax policy of individual countries influences both the movement of capital in international frameworks and decisions on investment flows. In addition, students will be introduced to the very complex issues of international double taxation, as well as the possibilities and limitations of tax competition and the need for tax harmonization in a globalized business environment and in a single market.
Students will be able not only to master the process of taxation in the global market, but also to manage the business policy of the company when deciding on entering the international market. In this regard, students will be able to take advantage of the possibility of minimizing tax liabilities and increasing the financial performance of operations on this basis.
