The 19th Annual U.S. and Europe Tax Practice Trends Conference will focus on practical tax practice trends for multinational corporations and their international advisors, as well as provide insight into how government tax officials may view the international tax landscape in light of important international developments that impact corporate taxpayers. Panelists will include industry leaders, senior government and OECD officials, and leading tax practitioners from the United States and Europe.
Designed for international tax professionals from industry and private practice, sessions will cover:
• cooperative compliance between taxpayers and governments;
• the effect of U.S. Tax Reform and ATAD on mergers and acquisitions;
• the evolution of blockchain and taxation of cryptocurrency in the United States and Europe;
• the evolving view of the OECD and others on cross border financing;
• how to protect taxpayers under constitutional, EU, and international human rights laws in an era of increased regulation and heightened enforcement;
• transfer pricing cases and dispute resolution mechanisms;
• the digital economy;
• the latest EU developments on state aid in tax matters;
• the current state of criminal tax enforcement in Europe and the United States;
• the practical implications for cross-border corporate structures deriving from the MLI anti-treaty abuse provisions; and
• cross border investments in real estate by tax-exempt entities.
As in past years, the Conference will be supplemented by half-day Private Wealth Management Workshop on Wednesday, 3 April. Numerous networking opportunities will be provided and a reception will be held on Thursday evening.
