International tax law: quo vadis?

No crystal ball or book can answer this question. IBFD’s International Tax Dialogues Seminar at IFA Basel will focus on key specific issues of international taxation, in order to give a quality indication of trends in the legal interpretation and policy of cross-border taxation. Top international experts will discuss the theory and practice of protecting taxpayers’ fundamental rights, research and development in the post-BEPS era and the taxation of sportspersons and entertainers, giving you a unique glimpse into what truly matters in international taxation. Addressing topics already covered by the IFA congress sessions, the IBFD dialogues look at these problems from a different perspective, focusing on future developments. The IBFD dialogues are therefore a perfect in-depth supplement for a full immersion into technical issues combined with an overall vision of tax sovereignty in the era of global tax coordination.

Participation to the seminar is free, but is restricted in number by the capacity of the venue.
