OUR ANNUAL CONFERENCE
MULTILATERAL INSTRUMENT (MLI) UNDER BEPS
(see full programme)
Our 22nd Annual Conference in 2017 continues from our 2016 conference with focus on "MLI" under BEPS (Action 15). Our keynote topic is MULTILATERAL INSTRUMENT AND BEPS IN ACTION . This year our conference is organised by us in cooperation with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, Paris. Like last year, it is also a Joint Conference with the IBFD based in Amsterdam. IBFD is the sister organisation of International Fiscal Association. It was set up as its publication, research and training arm in 1938. Set up as a charity, it is the largest institution of its kind in the world. FIT as a charity runs this conference annually on International Taxation in India since 1995. We welcome them to our Conference.

Our first speaker is Murray Clayson from UK as the new President of International Fiscal Association - Worldwide this year. (He has sent us a recorded message from London). Our keynote ("Klaus Vogel") speaker is Pascal Saint-Amans, Director of the OECD's Center for Tax Policy in Paris. He also heads the BEPS Project since its inception in 2013 and reports on it regularly to the G20 Finance Ministers. The theme of our Plenary session on Day One is BEPS Action 15 on Multilateral Instrument (MLI), which is needed to comply with the recommendations of the various BEPS Reports without having to make bilateral treaty changes. The speakers will make presentations, followed by panel discussions, to clarify some of the key issues underlying MLI.

On Day Two morning, we have a half-day session on BEPS in India. Our government speakers this year include Akhilesh Ranjan, Principal Chief Commissioner of Income Tax (International) in India, Rajat Bansal, Competent Authority, India, Pragya Saksena, Joint Secretary (FT & TR I) and Parthasarathi Shome, former Minister of State in the Finance Ministry. The session also includes a high-level panel discussion to review the Impact of BEPS on Indian Tax Policy, Practice and Compliance by some of the leading Indian International Tax professionals as experts. As in prior years, we also expect several speakers, as well as delegates, from the International Division of the Indian Revenue Service, and also now from the Indian Income Tax Appellate Tribunal, who will participate in our conference as speakers and delegates.

The rest of the conference covers panel discussions on seventeen issues selected by us under BEPS Action Points. The full programme is given overleaf.
Note: We have now been advised that Pascal Saint-Amans, will attend and participate in our sessions on the first two days of our conference.
