GLOBAL accounting network RSM International has launched a new training programme focused on technical and advisory tax skills.

RSM ITAX Academy, a two year programme for the network’s future leaders in international tax, includes two week residential course together with regular webcasts and extensive home study, and is led by members from the RSM Centre for Excellence for Tax in partnership with academics from the University of Amsterdam.

Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM International, said: “We launched the RSM ITAX Academy to give the future leaders of international tax a very special opportunity to learn not just from the very best tax professionals in RSM, but also from one of Europe’s best academic institutions for tax – the University of Amsterdam.

The first residential week has just been completed and covered a broad range of themes from cross border income and capital gains to hybrid entities and the OECD Model Tax Treaty.

Next year the class of 2013 will take their second residential week that includes GTS principals, EU Law and tax treaty anti-avoidance provisions. At the same time a fresh group of tax professionals will enrol and cover the first year programme.
