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

Berlin Conference

Almost a year after the final BEPS guidelines were released, some companies are still struggling to come to grips with the OECD’s recommendations.

While the tsunami of international taxation that followed the OECD's 15 recommendations was designed to bring clarity and consistent tax reform, is it also creating trouble for taxpayers?

In-house counsel, private practice and advisers will have an opportunity to discuss the global take-up of BEPS guidelines, from Brazil to India, the US to Japan, and everywhere in between.

The ITR Global Transfer Pricing Forum, held at the Hotel Adlon Kempinski in Berlin on June 29 and 30,willexamine varying tax authority approaches; pitfalls for taxpayers; and OECD updates on further transfer pricing work.

The conference will be run under ‘Chatham House Rules’ for the first time to allow panelists and observers to speak freely. An overview of the conference and registration can be found here.

Dispute resolution linked to BEPS

Among the many topical panels, the conference will analyse the demand for dispute resolution linked to BEPS, and it 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.

Dozens of speakers will be featured, including Jan Loeprick, Public Sector Specialist, Global Tax Team, EFI, The World Bank Group, and Luis Cariillo, Director Transfer Pricing, Bureau van Dijk, who both give keynote addresses.

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 kicks off with 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.
