Venue: Lower Ground, Tower Training Centre, Swatar
International corporate tax rules have seen some of the biggest changes in recent years since the commencement of the OECD BEPS project. One of the outcomes of the OECD BEPS project, in conjunction with the role which technology has played in shaping the global economy, is an increased focus on digitalised businesses and the commitment to ensure taxation in the jurisdiction where income is earned.
This seminar will provide an overview of work carried out by the OECD in understanding the ‘digital economy’ and the interim report on tax challenges arising from the digital economy. The seminar will also consider the two proposed directives published by the European Commission with the intention to address digital transformation within the economy.
Why should delegates attend?

The session will examine the publication by the OECD of the interim report on how to develop a framework for the taxation of the digitalised economy, as well as the two proposed directives published by the EU, one of which is set to be an interim solution, towards taxing the digitalised economy.
