BEPS Expert – limit your risks by becoming an international BEPS Expert!

Tax avoidance is getting much attention these days. The OECD has created 15 specific BEPS (Base Erosion and Profit Shifting) Actions to fight tax avoidance and evasion. One of the main principles OECD currently promotes is that taxation has to take place where value is created. As a consequence, domestic tax laws and the implication of many tax treaties will have to change.

International tax professionals have to become familiar with these changes. Even if your company or client is based in a country that hardly participates in OECD BEPS, the country of the subsidiary, partner or sister company probably will participate in OECD BEPS. Missing out on these developments is not just a planning risk, but also a liability risk and in some countries it can even become a criminal risk. The lack of clarity around the implementation of the BEPS Action plan by countries is invariably leading to a world of unavoidable tax disputes. These are all reasons why you should become a BEPS Expert to limit your risk.

BEPS Expert – the latest on BEPS/UN/EU

The United Nations (UN) has an approach which deals with base erosion and profit shifting as well. Its approach is to a certain extent comparable, but not equal to the OECD approach. The European Union (EU) also claims its position in this debate. Missing out on these developments might lead to double or triple taxation. Liabilities for tax advisers, who still recommend tax planning under the old rules, will arise.

In this top-level training, the most important actions of the BEPS project as well as the EU Action Plan and UN tax developments will be discussed. The instructors will provide you with the latest updates on profit allocation Permanent Establishments (PE); Mandatory Dispute Resolution (MDR); the Multilateral Instrument (MLI); Controlled Foreign Company (CFC) rules and best practices; hybrid structures; harmful tax practices and the Nexus approach; triangular cases, the current status of state aid and taxation, the EU Parent Subsidiary Directive; anti-abuse; EU ATAD 1 and ATAD 2; etc.
