EY Tax Webcast
Navigating in a post-BEPS world, Part 6: the future tax landscape after the signing of the multilateral instrument
Session 6 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.
In our sixth and final webcast, we will look at a current development that will have a great impact on the shape and content of the international tax environment of the future. Join our senior tax professionals as they discuss the expected contours of the tax treaty landscape following the much anticipated signing of the multilateral instrument in early June.
In combination the set of 6 webcasts has shown us the breadth of the issues to deal with in a post-BEPS world, where major changes are taking place on all levels relevant for international taxation: treaties, domestic legislation and tax administration.
