Similarly, you will also perfect your listening / video comprehension skills based on two videos dealing with current global controversial tax issues: the first one relating to Amazon's corporate taxation issues and the second related to Apple's corporate taxation battle with the European Union.

The approach is rather practical with an introductory session of approx. 80 minutes accompanied by a pdf script of everything said in the video along with key exercises in order to put the theory into practice.
