Tim Sarson’s latest summary of international developments.

As anticipated last autumn, the Netherlands has enacted emergency retrospective legislation in response to two rulings from the EU. There have been Budget announcements in Canada, Hong Kong and Singapore. China has provided guidance on its interpretation of beneficial ownership, and India has concluded two advance pricing agreements which may provide helpful insights for other taxpayers.

• Updates on the taxation of the digital economy;
• 2018 Budgets in Canada, Hong Kong and Singapore;
