INDIA: Tax issue may be hurdle for India hosting the 2006 Champions Trophee

It has been reported that the World Cricket Organisation ICC is considering the Indian taxation of international events organised in India to be unacceptable. The ICC is looking for an exception, as is apparently allowed for in many countries. Also in other sports (e.g. regarding the 2004 European Football Championship in Portugal and reportedly also the 2006 World Football Championship in Germany) such exemptions are common. The argument about India is reportedly also made regarding the Netherlands. There UEFA will apparently not again host a Champion League Final in the Netherlands because of the withholding tax burden for the income generated during this event.
