UnscheduledOpportunities and Challenges in Post-BEPS International Taxation – Current Issues

Important Notification - 17 March 2020

After careful consideration, IFA has decided to postpone IFA Quito 2020.

With the World Health Organisation’s declaration that the COVID-19 virus is now a pandemic, combined with the fact that many countries worldwide are closing borders, placing travellers in quarantine, and restricting travel, IFA considers that the risk to conference delegates is too great in the current health climate. For this reason, IFA is postponing the Encuentro Latinoamericano de IFA - Quito 2020 to May 2021.

This course, Opportunities and Challenges in Post-BEPS International Taxation – Current Issues, aims to analyse a selection of current issues, including the latest worldwide developments, case law on permanent establishment and transfer pricing, capital gains taxation and offshore indirect transfer of assets, withholding tax and income repatriation, and substance considerations based on anti-abuse rules.

On 20-22 May, IFA Quito 2020 will take place.

Please note: This course is not currently scheduled. The price, program and instructors are detailed as per the previous course for information purposes only and may be subject to change.
