The constant changes in taxation, due to increasing tax competition, are a major challenge in national and international taxation. In order to be able to carry out international tax planning services for natural and legal persons, it is essential to be familiar with the taxation systems of other countries and keep up with current developments in international and European tax law. Sound knowledge in international tax law will be one of the key components for the future success of people who are active in wealth management in the German-speaking area.


Continuing education for practitioners of tax law


During the next eight months, 28 students from Liechtenstein, Germany, Austria and Switzerland with varied professional backgrounds will be examining the tax regulations of Liechtenstein, Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the double taxation, tax information and withholding tax agreements between these countries, as well as the significant European regulations. On the basis of this fundamental knowledge, topics of international tax planning in relation to asset structures and financial instruments will be discussed and analysed using practice-oriented case studies. 




The University of Liechtenstein’s Institute for Financial Services thus takes on an important role in the necessary continuing education of practitioners in the areas of banking, trust services and taxation in the border region of Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Austria and Germany.
