EY Global Webcast
BEPS is broader than tax: Considerations for the treasury team
'BEPS is broader than tax' webcast series, session 3 of 7
The final reports on the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) Action Plan have been released by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and endorsed by the G20. These reports on the 15 BEPS focus areas reflect recommendations for significant changes in international tax laws and treaties. Attention has now turned to the actions that are taken by countries in response to these recommendations.
The impact of these changes will be felt well beyond the tax department. EY will examine the impact of BEPS on key business functions in a program of seven Thought Center Webcasts.
The third webcast in the series will focus on the impact on the treasury function. During the webcast, a cross-functional panel of senior EY business advisory and tax professionals will discuss the impact that BEPS is expected to have on key treasury activities such as capital structuring, intra-group lending arrangements, cash pooling systems and risk management activities.
