IBFD Dialogues on International Taxation Seminar


We have reached full capacity and thus it is no longer possible to register. Feel free to visit our IFA stand to check for cancellations.

This year, the IBFD Dialogues on International Taxation Seminar will focus on specific key issues in international taxation to give a reliable indication of trends in the legal interpretation and policy of cross-border taxation.

Top international experts will discuss dual residence issues in international taxation and the impact of the recent OECD Multilateral Convention on the double tax treaty network, giving you a unique glimpse into what truly matters in international taxation. Addressing current tax issues, the IBFD Dialogues, as always, will look at these problems from a different perspective, focusing on future developments. The IBFD Dialogues therefore are the perfect in-depth supplement to the IFA seminars for a full immersion into technical issues combined with an overall view of tax sovereignty in the era of global tax coordination.


Likewise, in 2017, our IBFD Dialogues will serve as an excellent platform for launching the completion of the IBFD Global Tax Treaty Commentaries (GTTC), the most authoritative source for analysis of and commentary on tax treaty practices across the globe. This peer-reviewed, cutting-edge publication is authored by world-class academics and tax professionals.
