Cross Border Tax Workshop

September 21, 2019 - our fourteenth year!
Location: Rome, Italy at the Hotel Parco dei Principe
Topic is Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) refers to corporate tax planning strategies used by multinationals to "shift" profits from higher–tax jurisdictions to lower–tax jurisdictions, thus "eroding" the "tax–base" of the higher–tax jurisdictions.  

During the Cross Border Tax Workshop in Lisbon, Portugal, in 2016, the participants talked about the history, the process and the progress of the BEPS Project. Participants from 13 different countries presented different Action Plans of the OECD and the status of realization in the respective countries.
This year’s workshop will focus on the developments and the progress since 2016 and the actual status of the implementation of the BEPS Action Plans in the respective local law. 
BEPS is and remains highly topical and the further development of this subject promises to be exciting. We encourage our members to register for the workshop and to share their knowledge and contribute to this interesting topic.  For more information contact Susanne Martius.
