The underlying scenario of this thesis is the existence and extent of liability to tax on income arising from patent royalties in cross-border transactions. A quantitative method and associated model are developed that compare and contrast the susceptibility of identified legal frameworks, considered in pairs, to jurisdictional arbitrage regarding this income. The jurisdictions of Australia and the United States engaged in cross-border transactions with Ireland are examined.
