- Online International Tax Conference: The Ever-Changing International Tax Landscape
The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely impacted many business activities, but it has not slowed down the development of international tax. The OECD continues its efforts to revamp the international tax system in the post-BEPS era and to pursue a consensus on the proposed taxation of the digital economy (Pillar I and Pillar II) within the Inclusive Framework. However, the challenges in achieving a consensus, and the adoption of a system acceptable to the majority of the Inclusive Framework, have never been so formidable. In the meantime, the United Nations has proposed a withholding tax on digital services in tax treaties. Some experts consider this a partial solution to the problem of taxation of digital services, while others think it is not the way forward and ignore the proposal.As the leading international tax research organization and knowledge centre, IBFD has closely followed these developments and actively participated in the discussions. During this tax conference, our experts will provide an update and share their views on some of these issues.The topics
Status quo of taxation of the digital economy and global corporate minimum tax
The outcome of the consultation meeting of the OECD in mid-January 2021 will be presented and IBFD’s keynote speaker will also give an update on further developments on taxation of the digital economy.
Tax treaty developments in China in the post-BEPS era
The main features of the new tax treaties concluded by China in recent years and the recommendations of Action 6 of the BEPS Project incorporated in these treaties will be addressed by Mr Li Qiao Lang, Director Tax Treaty Division of International Tax Department of the State Taxation Administration.
The new transfer pricing developments
The COVID-19 pandemic, the OECD’s proposal on Pillar One with regard to the digital economy and the OECD’s new report on financial transactions will have an impact on transfer pricing issues. A tax practitioner will highlight these developments that will change the transfer pricing landscape.
Registration for the online conference will open in January 2021.
