Navigating in a post-BEPS world: hybrid mismatches, interest deductibility and other coherence measures
Session 5 of 6 part series: “Navigating in a post-BEPS world”
Join us as we host a six part webcast series, “Navigating in a post-BEPS world”. These sessions will provide a comprehensive review of BEPS related developments and associated country action, together with practical implications.
The OECD BEPS project has rapidly moved to the implementation phase, leaving a fundamentally changed landscape in its wake. This new environment requires businesses to re-evaluate their operational, financing and holding structures, identify communications strategies and assess their tax strategy, all with the aim of developing a sustainable tax framework.
This fifth session will discuss the status of the BEPS coherence measures in relation to hybrid mismatches, interest deductibility, controlled foreign companies and preferential regimes. Join our senior international tax professionals as they discuss:
- Practical implications and impact of these measures for supply chain, financing and holding company structures.
- Recent developments in the European Union, including overview of the Anti-Tax Avoidance Directives that provide common implementation of these measures in the EU.
