The Dissonance of European Tax Harmonization
by Stuart Gibson
During the lunch break at a tax conference in Lisbon last January, I was fortunate to be seated next to a brilliant tax professor from the U.K., Rita de la Feria. Shortly after we exchanged the usual pleasantries, she asked me a pointed question.

Renouncing the Dogma of Surrey’s Infallibility
by Ajay Gupta
Treasury’s export of Stanley Surrey’s arm’s-length standard was perhaps the most successful case of ideological conversion in the arena of international tax policy.

Treasury may very well have to renounce the dogma of Surrey’s infallibility before true reform in the global transfer pricing regime can take place.
