The Oxford University Centre for Business Taxation is joining with the Fiscal Affairs Department (FAD) of the IMF on 2 December 2016 to present a seminar to discuss International Taxation and the Extractive Industries. The seminar will mark the publication of the new book, edited by current and former staff of the IMF, and published by Routledge.

The taxation of extractive industries exploiting oil, gas, or minerals is usually treated as a sovereign, national policy and administration issue. The book offers a uniquely comprehensive overview of the theory and practice involved in designing policies on the international aspects of fiscal regimes for these industries, with a particular focus on developing and emerging economies. It addresses key topics that are not frequently covered in the literature, such as the geo-political implications of cross-border pipelines and the legal implications of mining contracts and regional financial obligations. The contributors to the book, all of whom are leading researchers with experience of working with governments and companies on these issues, present an authoritative collection of chapters. The volume reviews international tax rules, covering both developments in the G20-OECD project on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting and more radical proposals, identifying core challenges in the extractives sector.

Michael Devereux will chair the event and Michael Keen will give a presentation. This will be followed by a panel discussion.
