In a globalized world, in which economic transactions are becoming increasingly international, the objective of this subject is to provide students with the foundations of international and European tax law. This will facilitate the understanding of current issues such as where and how should income from international transactions be taxed, the problems of double taxation and tax avoidance by multinational corporations or the latest initiatives against tax havens. Which criteria can use States to tax individuals or corporations doing business in different countries? Why do corporations such as Google or Apple pay so low taxes in many of the countries in which they operate? Are Andorra or Switzerland tax havens? How does a double tax treaty work? Which measures could prevent tax fraud? How does European Union law influence the national tax systems? How can the European Court of Justice protect us against discriminatory taxes? These are some of the questions that this subject will try to answer.
