This course will be held at the IBFD Office for the Americas in Tysons Corner, Washington DC Metro area.
Overview and learning objectives
This two-day course explores the outbound tax planning issues confronting US MNEs that operate in a number of jurisdictions around the globe. Topics to be addressed in this course include the practical implications of the OECD BEPS Action Plan in relation to intangibles, intra-group holding and financing structures, and transfer pricing documentation. The discussion extends its focus to the new developments in international tax law of the selected European countries favoured by US MNEs, and the recent investigation on EU State aid. It further considers tax risk management and prevention of tax disputes with European tax authorities.
The course has been specifically tailored to meet the practical needs of tax, finance and transfer pricing professionals working in a variety of industrial and service sectors. By covering practical examples and a comprehensive case study, the course intends to provide new insights into risk factors associated with the way in which US MNEs do business in European countries in the post-BEPS era.
Prior to the course, participants will be given access to online supplementary material (e.g. legal documentation, case law and related articles/literature). During the course, participants will be provided with a course binder containing documents relevant to the course.
Who should attend?
The course is suitable for finance and tax personnel of MNEs, tax accountants, lawyers, in-house tax managers, tax and transfer pricing advisers.
