Description

In International Taxation of Trust Income, Mark Brabazon establishes the study of international taxation of trust income as a globally coherent subject. Covering the international tax settings of Australia, New Zealand, the UK, and the US, and their taxation of grantors/settlors, beneficiaries, trusts, and trust distributions, the book identifies a set of principles and corresponding tax settings that countries may apply to cross-border income derived by, through, or from a trust. It also identifies international mismatches between tax settings and purely domestic design irregularities that cause anomalous double- or non-taxation, and proposes an approach to tax design that recognises the policy functions (including anti-avoidance) of particular rules, the relative priority of different tax claims, the fiscal sovereignty of each country, and the respective roles of national laws and tax treaties. Finally, the book includes consideration of BEPS reforms, including the transparent entity clause of the OECD Model Tax Treaty.

Review quote

'This original survey of how four countries have decided to tax trusts makes an interesting comparison reflecting their different choices for dealing with the same topic. The book manages to deal with the mass of conflicting methods while at the same time keeping an eye on the policy of what the countries are trying to achieve.' John Avery Jones, Former Judge of the UK Upper Tribunal 'This book is essential reading for anyone concerned with trust taxation in an international setting. A meticulous analysis of four countries draws out the principles and policies of general importance underlying the taxation of trust income in cross-border situations. The discussion of interactions among these countries and with tax treaties reveals a myriad of issues for taxpayers and legislators alike, leading to proposals for a wide range of practical measures to achieve greater international coherence. Its lucid analysis and clear writing style make this book a pleasure to read.'
