Overview and learning objectives
As well as explaining the mechanics of these initiatives, the webinar will address their practical implications for businesses in both “digital” and “traditional” sectors and their likely impact on international trade and investment. Consideration will also be given to the interaction of possible new measures with related developments such as BEPS and the US Tax Reform. Finally, the webinar will assess the current status and likelihood and timing of implementation of the above-mentioned initiatives.
Topics to be discussed in this webinar include the state of play of the OECD, EU and country-specific tax initiatives, with a particular focus on the recent OECD proposals for taxing digitalized businesses and supplementary BEPS measures.
After following this webinar, participants will be able to:
- understand the core challenges digitalization creates for the international tax system

- analyse the practical implications of recent indirect tax developments affecting e-commerce and other digitalized business
