Webinar: EU Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive (ATAD) Alert

Overview and learning objectives

This approximately 1.5-hour webinar will help tax professionals to assess their readiness concerning the implications of the impending implementation of the ATAD. The webinar will focus on what the new provisions mean for, among others, common European business models, tax structures and financing operations. The webinar will equally cover EU inbound and outbound structures. Attention will be paid to the various implementation deadlines and the way EU Member States (such as Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands) transpose the Directive into their domestic laws. The webinar will deal with the key challenges that the new controlled foreign company (CFC), exit tax, interest limitation, anti-hybrid and general anti-abuse rule (GAAR) provisions represent for corporates and the ways they might address these challenges.

This webinar will give a practical overview of the most important provisions of the EU ATAD and the current state of play regarding its implementation. Since the different measures of the Directive will be effective at various dates, the presenters will specifically cover the implementation deadlines. Special attention will be given to questions of businesses conducting cross-border operations from or into the European Union, such as: (1) what are the imminent consequences of the ATAD? (2) what are the steps corporations can take to proactively align their position with the Directive? (3) how do the different EU Member States (major and smaller economies) implement the Directive?

After following this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Identify tax risks after EU ATAD
  • Interpret the different provisions of the Directive
  • Compare the various ways EU Member States transpose the Directive into their domestic laws
