Historic support for DSC Taxation Course
The Dominica State College (DSC) is partnering with the business community to bring competency to organizations and businesses in Dominica and have received tremendous support of many of the corporate citizens of the country.
The latest corporate citizens to join with the DSC to deliver this year’s International Taxation in the Caribbean Context (ITCC) course are (1) The Garraway Hotel, (2) Fine Foods Inc. and (3) Island Car Rentals Ltd.
The Agricultural and Industrial Development Bank (AID Bank) of Dominica gave the DSC its commitment to support the ITCC early and is the main sponsor of the seminar.
All of the sponsors share one commonality. They believe that continuing education is critical for the improvement and internationalization of their organizations’ standards.
They all agree that the 2011 ITCC will provide their professionals with the opportunity to sharpen their knowledge and skills in one of the unavoidable challenges, brought about by globalism, and that is, international taxation.
The ITCC will run from 7th to 11th August, 2011, at the Bath Estate Campus of the DSC, from 5:00pm to 8:00pm, each evening.
The goal of this 15 hour course is to familiarize participants and prepare them to handle the global challenges of taxation of international transactions, especially as it relates to the people of the Caribbean. The course will cover topics such as:
· Tax treaties and the effects on the Caribbean Basin;
· International employment and retirement benefits – the tax perspective;
· International taxation of intellectual property;
· Tax competition, harmonization and national sovereignty;
· CARICOM, the OECD, and harmful tax competition; and
· The future of the international taxation regime.
Dr. Donald Peters, President and his administration express their appreciation to AID Bank, Garraway Hotel, Island Car Rentals, and Fine Foods Inc. for their sponsorship that will now help DSC to deliver this high level professional development course. Such support strengthens the resolve of DSC to create a culture of life long learning where stimulating personal and professional empowerment becomes automatic in our people.
The Seminar is being coordinated by Mr. Merrill Matthew, Director of Continuing Education.
DSC and its partners hope that Dominican professionals will be encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to enrich their knowledge and skills by registering for the course.
