Abgrenzungsmaßstäbe im Abkommensrecht: Veranlassungsprinzip und Fremdvergleich bei der Betriebsstättengewinnabgrenzung (PwC-Studien zum Unternehmens- und Internationalen Steuerrecht #10)

by Solvejg Glatz

Ausgehend von dem Veranlassungsprinzip als tätigungsbezogenem Grundprinzip der Abgrenzung und dessen Konkretisierung durch den Fremdvergleichsgrundsatz analysiert die Arbeit die bisherige BFH-Rechtsprechung und diskutiert ausgewählte Fragestellungen der abkommensrechtlichen Betriebsstättengewinnabgrenzung. Es wird herausgearbeitet, dass sowohl dem Art. 7 OECD-MA als auch den sog. Betriebsstättenvorbehalten ein einheitlicher veranlassungsbasierter Abgrenzungsmaßstab zugrunde liegt, der an das spezifisch abkommensrechtliche Verständnis der Unternehmenstätigkeit anknüpft. Nach kommentarähnlicher Darstellung und Diskussion der Änderungen durch den Authorized OECD Approach (AOA) wird gezeigt, dass auch der dem AOA zugrunde liegende Abgrenzungsmaßstab veranlassungsbasiert ist, wenngleich es aufgrund der abweichenden Anknüpfung an Personalfunktionen im Einzelfall zu unterschiedlichen Zuordnungsergebnissen kommen kann. Zugleich werden Vorschläge für einzelne gesetzgeberische Nachbesserungen der Umsetzungsvorschrift des § 1 Abs. 5 AStG gemacht.

About Time: A History of Civilization in Twelve Clocks

by David Rooney

'An utterly dazzling book, the best piece of history I have read for a long time' Jerry Brotton, author of A History of the World in Twelve Maps'Not merely an horologist's delight, but an ingenious meditation on the nature and symbolism of time-keeping itself' Richard HolmesSince the dawn of civilisation, we have kept time. But time has always been against us. From the city sundials of ancient Rome to the era of the smartwatch, clocks have been used throughout history to wield power, make money, govern citizens and keep control. Sometimes, also with clocks, we have fought back.In About Time, time expert David Rooney tells the story of timekeeping, and how it continues to shape our modern world. In twelve chapters, demarcated like the hours of time, we meet the greatest inventions in horological history, from medieval water clocks to monumental sundials, and from coastal time signals to satellites in earth's orbit. We discover how clocks have helped us navigate the world, build empires and even taken us to the brink of destruction.Over the course of this global journey Rooney demonstrates how each of these clocks has shone a spotlight onto human civilisation, and shows us the very real effects clocks continue to have on everything from capitalism, to politics, to our very identity.This is the story of time. And the story of time is the story of us.
