Manama, February 15, 2012
The Bahrain Chapter of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (BCICAI) is organising a seminar on 'International Taxation and Cloud Computing' on Saturday from 6pm to 9pm at the Hotel Diva in Juffair.
International taxation and taxation for non-resident Indians will be addressed by leading chartered accountant T P Oswal.
He was adjudged 11th in the top 50 tax professionals in the world for the year 2006-07 by Tax-Business magazine of the UK.
World Tax magazine has recognised him as one of the leading 10 tax professionals advising transfer pricing matters in India.
He was very recently appointed a member of a sub-committee on transfer pricing for developing countries by the United Nations and for preparing negotiation manual of treaties by developing countries.
He is a regular speaker at international tax conferences, workshops, seminars and courses in India and abroad.
This talk will be followed by a seminar titled 'Introduction to Cloud Computing, its Threats and Mitigation Strategies' by Secureit Lab Bahrain director and head of practice Ashish Sharma.
Sharma is an IT specialist with more than 15 years of experience in implementation and compliance in networks, systems, security administration and auditing.
He would speak on the most contemporary issues of ways to increase capacity or add capabilities on the fly without investing in new infrastructure or training new personnel.
'Both topics covered by the seminar are very contemporary to the professional accountant whether they are in public practice, business or employment,' said BCICAI chairman T D Balraj.
'The two speakers are also authorities in their respective fields, which I am sure will do a lot of value addition to our members' knowledge base, right from the recent developments in international taxation to the latest trends in cloud computing.'
