BEPS and Beyond BEPS: A Year Later
We are delighted to partner with the Foundation for International Taxation (FIT) for our first-ever joint International Taxation Conference.
The 2016 conference theme is BEPS and Beyond BEPS: A Year Later. We have identified key BEPS issues for debate, panel discussions and presentations by experts, who will be represented by a diverse mix of academia, corporations, IGOs, NGOs, revenue authorities and tax practice. The conference will respond to the growing excitement in the international tax world around the G20 base erosion and profit shifting project, led by the OECD. This project’s focus has progressed beyond tax-free “homeless” income by multinational corporations, and extends to a holistic review of tax avoidance by a wide range of tax measures.


Expert debate of key BEPS topics

Throughout the conference, our expert speakers will introduce and guide the daily sessions, which will include:
  • Action 15 for the development of a multilateral instrument (MLI) under BEPS
  • BEPS in India Impact on Indian Tax Policy and Objectives
  • Global Impact of BEPS and Its Future

In addition to the plenary sessions, both auxiliary and stand-alone panel discussions will cover a wide range of BEPS Action Points from twelve selected issues. As with previous years, we hope and trust that these discussions by global experts will also increase understanding of these issues and work towards furthering their resolution.

Why attend?

As in previous years, around 500 conference delegates from all over the world are expected. They include international tax experts, academics, corporate representatives, tax professionals and revenue officials. The conference’s intensive three-day programme will greatly enrich your understanding of the BEPS landscape and significantly strengthen your network.
