10th IBFD International Tax Conference

 

The 10th IBFD International Tax Conference will be different in two aspects compared to previous conferences. Firstly, it is the first time that IBFD is hosting its annual conference in Shenzhen, a city that has become a leading global technology hub and Chinese Silicon Valley since the start of China’s “opening up” policy. Secondly, the conference has been extended from a half-day to a one-day event to accommodate a special afternoon session. For this afternoon session, we have specially invited experts from the State Taxation Administration, the tax administrations of several European countries and tax representatives of multinational enterprises to discuss transfer pricing, which remains an anti-tax avoidance focus of many tax administrations. 

 

About the topics
Taxation of the digitalized economy
An IBFD expert will update the audience on the latest developments and provide an analysis of the main issues.

 

Taxpayers’ rights
Considering the increased importance of the subject, IBFD would like to take the opportunity at its annual conference in Shenzhen to promote and encourage further discussion on this subject in China. 

 

Transfer pricing
The afternoon session of this conference will be devoted entirely to transfer pricing. Officials from IBFD, the OECD, State Taxation Administration, the tax administrations of several European countries and partners from Maisto e Associati in Italy will discuss transfer pricing in depth and deliver contributions to the process of seeking possible solutions for pressing and complex transfer pricing problems.
