Tax is considered as an involuntary fee which is levied on corporations and individuals, enforced by governments in order to finance their activities.
As access to the global marketplace grows with cross border transactions, it is vital that a deep understanding and knowledge of the various tax laws and systems is gained. This will enable Corporations and Individuals to structure and plan their activities in the most efficient way which within the International Taxation principles, the frameworks of the OECD model treaty, the transfer pricing principles will result in minimising the tax burden on income and profits.

Indirect taxes are also imposed by the governments as a mean to increase their resources and finance their activities.
Unlike direct taxes which are paid directly by individuals or corporations to the governments, indirect taxes are paid indirectly by the final consumer of goods and services, while paying for purchase of goods or for enjoying services.
Common examples of indirect taxes are the Value Added Tax (VAT) and Excise Duties (i.e. imposed on cigarettes, petrol, alcohol etc). Excise duties are normally placed on inelastic commodities since the tax causes a small fall in the quantity consumed and as a result the total revenue of the government from the tax will be greater. A good example of this is the high level of duty on cigarettes and petrol.
