This book examines the taxation of portfolio income (dividends, interest and capital gains) in the context of global financial markets. Its goal is two-fold: to offer an explanation of the current patterns of international taxation in this area, and to provide a normative analysis of what the patterns should look like. To this end, the author makes a survey of the system called ‘global financial markets’, the theory underlying international portfolio income taxation and the current practices of countries in taxing such income. Inter-governmental cooperative patterns in areas adjunct to taxation, such as trade, bank and securities regulation and money laundering, are presented and contrasted with the findings concerning international taxation. Intertwined with this analysis is a closer inspection of some of the terms that are used abundantly in the literature on the subject, including ‘globalism’, ‘sovereignty’ and ‘tax competition’. The discussion ends with some tentative conclusions regarding the forces that shape the patterns of cooperation observed in international taxation in general, and specifically in issues related to portfolio income taxation. It offers answers to several key questions and outlines the likely shape of developments to come. It highlights some factors that, in the author’s opinion, have been downplayed in the existing international tax literature: the role of politics in international tax policy-making; the role of tax experts in shaping policy-makers’ perceptions of the playing field, the available alternatives and the ‘national interest’, and the effect of disagreement among these experts on the prospects of international cooperation; the dynamic nature of cooperation among tax collectors; and the role of history in shaping the present (and future) array of conceivable solutions.
Major events such as the Asian crisis in 1997, the Russian default on short-term debt in 1998, the downfall of the hedge fund long-term capital management in 1998 and the disruption in payment systems following the World Trade Center attack in 2001, all resulted in increased management’s attention to liquidity risk.
Banks have realized that adequate systems and processes for identifying, measuring, monitoring and controlling liquidity risks help them to maintain a strong liquidity position, which in turn will increase the confidence of investors and rating agencies as well as improve funding costs and availability.
Liquidity Risk Measurement and Management: A Practitioner’s Guide to Global Best Practices provides the best practices in tools and techniques for bank liquidity risk measurement and management. Experienced bankers and highly regarded liquidity risk experts share their insights and practical experiences in this book.
The Federal Financial Management Improvement Act (FFMIA) of 1996 requires, among other things, that U.S. government agencies implement and maintain financial management systems that substantially comply with federal financial management systems requirements. This checklist reflects the Joint Financial Management Improvement Program’s (JFMIP) revised Direct Loan System Requirements (June 1999) to assist (1) agencies in implementing and monitoring their direct loan systems, and (2) managers and auditors in reviewing their direct loan systems to determine if they substantially comply with FFMIA. A tool for experienced staff.
