Business is becoming more globalised and the number of Australia's tax treaties, information-sharing treaties and other agreements has grown rapidly. Australian Tax Treaties provides the text of all international tax agreements entered into by Australia as at 1 January 2015 in one convenient volume. A perfect accompaniment to the Australian Income Tax Legislation 2015 - 3 Volume Set, it reproduces all of Australia's current tax treaties and Tax Information Exchange Agreements (TIEAs) in alphabetical order, as well as the text of the International Tax Agreements Act. Useful tables are also included to provide relevant dates of effect for each treaty/agreement, references to the Australian Treaty Series and enacting legislation, and a summary of the maximum withholding tax rates applicable under Australia's tax treaties. A new feature of this edition is the inclusion of Australia's new FATCA agreement with the US, affecting Australian banks and financial institutions, which came into force on 30 June 2014. This title is a must-have for anyone advising businesses with cross-border transactions - both Australian businesses that export or import goods or services and overseas-based businesses with Australian operations. Use this book to find the rules for how business and individuals are taxed in Australia and in foreign countries. For example, find out if an individual who works in a foreign country pays tax in that country or in their home country.
