ITR Global Transfer Pricing Forum, June 29 & 30 in Berlin

MNE CbCR Divides EU Finance Ministers

A rush of international taxation followed the OECD's BEPS recommendations but did it bring the promised clarity and consistent tax reform?

The ITR Global Transfer Pricing Forum will offer taxpayers and in-house counsel the opportunity to discuss the global take-up of BEPS guidelines from the US to Japan and countries in between. 

The Forum will address issues from technology to dispute resolution and BEPS compliance. The focus will be on practical implications, unanswered questions and major concerns for tax departments. 

For the first time, the panels will be moderated by TP Week and ITR journalists and run under ‘Chatham House Rules’ to allow speakers and observers to debate openly. An overview of the conference and registration can be found here

The keynote speech on June 29 will feature Christopher Wales, a former member of the UK Treasury’s Council of Economic Advisers under Gordon Brown and Tony Blair. Wales also headed PwC’s global tax and governance team from 2012 to 2016, a role in which he worked extensively with prime ministers and finance ministers, 

Jan Loeprick, public sector specialist, global tax team, EFI, The World Bank Group, will address delegates at the opening of the conference on June 30.

Dispute resolution linked to BEPS

The ITR Global Transfer Pricing Forum is being held at Berlin's five-star Hotel Adlon Kempinski. 

Among the many topical panels, the conference will offer insight on country-by-country reporting (CbCR), which is designed to give tax authorities more information about where multinationals are booking their profits.

The agenda for June 29 includes a BEPS compliance overview, a panel on dispute resolution, a CbCR discussion, and a panel on IP regimes focused on patent boxes. A drinks reception will follow.

June 30 offers a focus on the digital economy, a discussion about how to integrate technology with BEPS compliance, European transfer pricing issues including developments from the European parliament, and an update on regulations for intercompany financial transactions.
