  • Mariano Giralt: Global custodian and acronym-buster

    January 27, 2015

The OECD’s BEPS project is likely to rewrite the rules governing international taxation in a way that has not been seen since the League of Nations shaped existing rules in the 1920s. A key component of this is taxation of the financial sector. Various sector-specific tax laws have been proposed. This is providing those in the sector with plenty to think about. One such figure is Mariano Giralt, Managing Director, Tax Services, at BNY Mellon. He talks to Matthew Gilleard about some of the key tax developments impacting financial services.
