Item description for Electronic Commerce and International Taxation by Richard Doernberg...
`Electronic commerce' -- a broad spectrum of commercial activities carried out through the use of computers -- has arrived. It is expanding. It has major implications for all facets of society. But tax authorities have questioned whether existing tax principles and rules are equipped to deal with the challenges of conducting business in cyberspace. Electronic Commerce and International Taxation examines the implications of the growth of electronic commerce for domestic and international tax systems, concentrating on the conduct of electronic commerce over the Internet. It covers a wide array of activities, focusing on basic rules and policy choices. The book looks at existing tax principles, how they might apply to hypothetical transactions involving electronic commerce, and possible alternative approaches. Coverage includes the basic principles that govern income and value added taxes, an overview of the technological changes that have brought about electronic commerce, a concise explanation of how and what happens when electronic commerce is conducted, an examination of the ways in which businesses are using the new technology in conducting their everyday activities, a discussion of the application of existing tax principles to electronic commerce, an exploration of questions and problems raised by applying tax rules that evolved before electronic commerce to transactions that were then unimaginable, and observations and suggestions for a variety of approaches to international tax problems resulting from electronic commerce and the associated benefits and problems. Because the implications of electronic commerce vary from industry to industry, Electronic Commerce and International Taxation focuses on the broad issues that span all industries. The information provided will keep tax attorneys, accountants, corporate counsel, policymakers, and academics in the field of tax law abreast of the issues posed by this hot topic and their many potential implications. This unique resource is an important part of becoming conversant in the language of a changing world.

A good survey of international taxation of e-commerce Jun 26, 1999
This new book, which focuses solely on the international tax aspects of e-commerce, provides a good, broad view of this difficult and fast-changing area. This new book looks at the rules of many countries as they relate to the cross-border taxation of e-commerce.
The importance of this book is as a survey of the various rules and rulings in a number of countries that impact e-commerce. The book does not attempt to be an exhaustive reference to the rules of any country in particular. Instead, it uses rulings in various countries as a way of illustrating the direction of and the differences between laws of various countries that may influence e-commerce. This approach is important because current laws will change rapidly. A survey of different approaches provides readers with an indication of the course rule making may take in the future.
The book has an excellent section on VAT and e-commerce. For U.S. readers, the book may be worth buying for this information alone, since VAT will become increasingly important to U.S. vendors engaged in sales into VAT countries.
The book concludes with a long section on tax policy. This section is a good survey of different approaches, and is helpful in thinking about the way things may go in the future.
