CITL COURSE WORK 2012

Scotia a small oil and gas producing state has a number of DTR Conventions which follow the form of the OECD Model. Its convention with its neighbour Anglia is particularly advantageous reflecting the good relationship with this neighbouring state. However, Scotia has become concerned about the way some individuals and corporations from beyond its boundaries are using its convention with Anglia.

Despite heavy flows of money through the treaty route, there appears to be little advantage to either Scotia or Anglia.

  1. Consider why this might be the situation.

  2. Discuss the formal steps and legal techniques Scotia might take, to reduce what it sees as an abuse of its treaty network using specific examples from the international experience, current and past.

  3. What particular issues might be relevant to the situation in relation to UKCS and oil and gas production?
