Many multi-national entities operate across several African jurisdictions. Due to the complexity of
domestic tax laws as well as the tax implications of cross-border transactions and the impact of
double tax agreements, taxpayers in various African jurisdictions may end up in a dispute with the
local tax authorities. Resolving such disputes can be a lengthy and costly process, particularly if the
matter proceeds to court.
An increasing number of jurisdictions have implemented alternative tax dispute resolution
mechanisms, including tax tribunals. Some have been long established, while others are relatively
recent, or have been recently reformed.
This webinar will focus on South Africa, Nigeria, and the United Kingdom as three jurisdictions that
share a legal heritage as far as courts of law are concerned but developed and reformed tax
dispute resolution mechanisms along their own trajectories.
