“For a tax specialist working in Brazil; Sheltons courses are a must! This statement is based on the fact that any international taxation course within the country is focused on the consequences of domestic tax legislation on international transactions, not on single concepts of international taxation. Moreover, it is also a great opportunity to be more familiar with OECD models and concepts, since Brazil is not an OECD member and, thus, we tend not to give the necessary attention to it’s important and influential definitions on international taxation.” Felipe Gamboa Alves da Costa, Direct Taxes Consultant, Shell Brasil Ltda., Brazil

“The entire course is of great value and absolutely recommendable. I really appreciate Mr. Shelton for lecturing the very “fundementals” of international taxation at an understandable level and sharing his rich tax experiences. Moreover, as a translator myself, working with such a renowned tax expert was such a thrill.” Jeeyeon, Tax Dept, Translator, Government National Tax Service, Korea
