    The Master in Taxation (Máster en Tributación) offered by Carlos III University in Madrid consists on a specialized course on tax advising that undergraduates on law, economics, management and accounting may undertake, a training that combines the technical analysis of the main Spanish taxes and enforcement procedures with a practical vision of their impact on the functioning of the enterprises and the market, i.e. the economic reality over which taxes cause an influence.

    To provide the students with the skills required to become an integral tax adviser, the syllabus is based on a systematic analysis of the main taxes of the Spanish system. An analysis that pays special attention to some specific aspects of taxes on individuals -expats, payments in kind, estate planning et cetera- and businesses -transfer pricing, the consolidation regime, business restructurings and so on-, as well as sectorial taxation.

    Besides, on the basis of previously acquired knowledge, a deeper analysis on the taxation of entities and financial transactions, the real estate sector, non-profit entities or taxation of energy and communications is performed.
