Post Qualification Diploma in International Taxation
October, 29th 2016
                  About the Diploma in International Taxation
Tax laws in India are becoming more and more complex. Globalization of economies,
signing and review of free trade agreements, increase in the number of cross border
transactions, mergers, acquisitions, tax treaties, transfer pricing etc. have added to these

To help our members to build the capacities in the area of international taxation, the ICAI
through its dedicated Committee on International Taxation has been conducting a
certificate course on International Taxation for its members since 2009. After successfully
organizing certificate course for six years, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India
with the approval of Ministry of Corporate Affairs has brought out a Post Qualification
Diploma in International Taxation for its members. The Diploma course will benefit our
professionals in industry as well in practice to acquire specialized knowledge in the area of
International Taxation and take the profession to the yet newer heights.

                             Vision behind this initiative
Benchmarking skill sets and Delivering innovation.......

Keeping pace with growing complexities of businesses, cross border investments,
acquisitions, trade and technological innovations, tax laws are becoming more and more
complex. Globalization of economies, signing and review of free trade agreements and tax
treaties coupled with more rigorous application of anti avoidance measures by various
jurisdictions, add to these complexities. Though compliance with tax laws is being
simplified, at the same time cost of non-compliance is increasing.

Since our professionals are competent and well prepared to take up the challenges involved
in working in the borderless world, ICAI too is geared up to support them in respect of the
required knowledge up-dation.

The syllabus of this course has been thoughtfully designed by the stalwarts in the
profession to ensure that the member acquire working knowledge and are able to identify
and resolve specific problem areas in a variety of practical situations. Considering the
necessity for providing dedicated and focused guidance, equal weightage has been given to
the subjects of "Transfer Pricing" and "International Tax".

The background material of the course has been written and reviewed by eminent experts
in the area of taxation. This course, if completed, would provide an aspiring practitioner the
desired confidence to practice in this complex and upcoming field. As there are only few
chartered accountants who are practicing in this area, there are plentiful of professional
opportunities available for the person who masters in this.

 Inspiring generations.......

Keeping oneself updated with the current and potential compliance and tax issues continue
to be a major focus area of every business decision maker. Tax laws have a bearing in every
business decision, whether it is relating to transactions with related or non related parties;
in the domestic or global markets or structuring of business or entering into new business
areas. Sweeping changes are being made in the tax laws all across the globe. Organisations
that are a part of a multinational group have to evaluate the implications of the probable
anticipated changes. They will also need to keep an eye on the tax administrative and
   legislative developments in India and also in other jurisdictions where they operate.
   Undoubtedly, this will widen the scope of practice for our chartered accountants in the area
   of international taxation.

   This course has been designed to provide necessary exposure and practical approach to
   our members in this area. This field has been offering a lot of professional opportunities for
   our members, which needs to be tapped. At present, the members practicing in this area
   are not in proportion to the opportunities available. Thus, ICAI took this initiative to
   encourage its members, particularly, the young members to take up international taxation
   as an area of practice.

   Our chartered accountants perfectly fit in the much required advisory role in the area of
   International taxation and this course will gear them up to face the challenges involved in
   this upcoming professional opportunity.

    b)         To acquire an analytical approach to apply the working knowledge to specific problem
