Free Online International Tax Conference

23 November 2023

We are delighted to invite you to our free online 14th International Tax Conference. It is one of the few events that provides insight on international taxation from a Chinese perspective.

This year we will focus on the following three topics, the potential impact of the Two Pillar Solution on China, the significance of Qualified Domestic Minimum Top-Up Tax and Transfer Pricing and Amount B from China’s perspective.

The half-day event will be held on 23 November 2023 from 14:00 to 17:00 (CST) and will cover three compelling topics.

International Tax Conference



The conference will provide unique insight on China’s uncertain stance on the two-pillar solution for international tax cooperation. While China acknowledges the need for global cooperation, it has not issued official views on Pillar One and Pillar Two. We will discuss the complicated decision it faces as both a capital-importing and exporting nation.

As Pillar Two is likely to be implemented soon in some parts of the world, the qualified domestic minimum top-up tax (QDMTT) proposal under Pillar Two is an interesting topic for China to consider. The second session will discuss it with arguments for and against it. 

Additionally, transfer pricing in China is critical for combating tax avoidance, and discussions on Amount B under Pillar One examine its alignment with China’s transfer pricing practices in marketing and distribution.
