A candid look at how the international corporate tax landscape has been affected by the BEPS project, the current OECD proposals for a multilateral global solution, and what the future might hold.
The CIOT, The Tax Institute (Australia), the Taxation Institute of Hong Kong and the Irish Tax Institute are pleased to announce a series of Global CTA Tax Webinars. The first of these is on international corporate tax.
The past five or so years have seen considerable change in the international corporate tax landscape, primarily because of the G20/OECD BEPS project. Interest in this area remains high as the OECD seeks to find a consensus for a multilateral global solution. This project, and the recent COVID pandemic, make the future of international corporate tax look very interesting/a potential hot bed of debate and controversy and raises questions such as:
- What has been the impact of changes to the international tax system as a result of the BEPS project in recent years?
- How do the Pillar One and Pillar Two proposals address the perceived challenges posed by the digitalisation of the economy, particularly around fairness and allocation of taxing rights?
- Will a multilateral agreement be reached around the OECD proposals by mid-2021?
- How will multinational enterprises react to the Pillars if these are agreed and implemented?
- How could future trends in tax rates and tax base be affected by this?
- Will COVID have an impact on the global tax base, and what might the different implications be for developed and developing nations?
Our panel of tax experts from practice, academia and the business world will explore these questions and offer their perspectives, and the President of the Taxation Institute of Hong Kong Tax, Webster Ng, will chair the debate.
- Louise Kelly, International Tax Partner, Deloitte, Ireland
- Richard Vann, Professor of Law, Sydney University and Consultant, Greenwoods & Herbert Smith Freehills, Australia. Also a member of the ADIT Academic Board.
- David Murray, Tax Policy Principal, Anglo American, UK
