Global Oil & Gas Tax Newsletter October 2011


Views from around the world


We are pleased to announce the release of the third edition of our Global Oil & Gas Tax Newsletter. In this edition of the newsletter, the feature article, “Developing an appropriate tax framework for Iraq,” discusses the growth in Iraqi investment opportunities for multinational oil & gas companies and highlights the recent developments in the country’s tax laws that may affect operations within this emerging business climate. Key areas discussed include the recently-enacted Iraq oil and gas tax law, increased tax retention rates relating to upstream oil and gas activities, and the impact of the prevailing deemed profits basis of taxation, among others.

In addition, the newsletter contains several articles addressing new oil & gas tax developments in countries around the world, including:

  • Australia provides additional guidance concerning the application of the carbon tax and extension of the PRRT proposal;
  • Indian courts rule on deemed profits tax provisions regarding non-resident service providers to oil and gas industry;
