The OECD Multilateral Instrument (‘MLI’ first) became effective in the UK from 1 January 2019 .  Since its implementation it has also become effective in  36 other  jurisdictions, resulting in the amendment of hundreds of tax treaty articles. The MLI  heralds a radical step change in the way that double tax treaties are rapidly amended in order to comply with the BEPS project.

Tax practitioners need to become thoroughly familiar with the MLI, as well as with other crucial aspects of double tax treaties. This course will help them do so.


Tax treaties are a dynamic area in the international tax field. Illustrated with numerous practical examples, the course will cover pertinent cases, government actions, and trends across the world that interpret and apply tax treaties to companies’ business operations.

The course will analyse the relevant articles of the OECD Model Treaty in relation to the crucial role they play in international tax planning for UK companies expanding and operating abroad; and for foreign companies doing business and investing into the UK. The treaty analysis will provide the building blocks for the application of treaties to the practical structuring of international operations, illustrated by considering specific treaties. The overarching impact of BEPS on double tax treaties will be fully covered.
