OUR ANNUAL CONFERENCE
BEPS AND BEYOND BEPS: RECENT GLOBAL DEVELOPMENTS POST RATIFICATION OF THE MULTILATERAL INSTRUMENT (MLI)
(see full programme)

Our 23rd Annual conference in 2018 continues from our previous conferences on BEPS IN ACTION. MLI was approved after the ratification of its fifth Instrument in March 2018 and became operational on July 1, 2018. It allows tax treaty changes needed under BEPS recommendations to be made multilaterally by Member States. Our conference again this year is a joint conference with IBFD in Amsterdam. We are grateful for their support. As in previous two years, it is also organized by us in cooperation with OECD, Paris. Pascal Saint-Amans from OECD Paris is again our keynote speaker. He and his team of experts will make presentations and speak about the recent progress and the future of the BEPS project with MLI in Action at our conference.

Day One concludes with two high level panel discussions on (i) latest OECD recommendations on international taxation of digitized business and (ii) the recent tax reforms in the United States and their global impact. The panelists include several globally renowned speakers such as William Morris (PWC), Rodney Lawrence (KPMG) and Robert Stack (Deloittes) from the States, Robert Danon and Mike Williams from Europe and Christopher Xing and Akhilesh Ranjan from Asia.

On Day Two, our session on BEPS in India includes a talk on "Recent Developments in International Taxation in India under BEPS" by Akhilesh Ranjan, Member, Central Board of DirectTaxes and Principal Chief Commissioner of Income-tax (International), India. Professor Parthasarathi Shome , an expert on Indian international tax, will chair a high-level panel discussion by tax experts from leading professional firms in India on "BEPS and Indian Tax Policy, Practice and Compliance in the Future". We have a book launch with presentation by Dr. Bibek Debroy , who is Chairman of the Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, on his recent book ''Making of New India through Transformation under Modi Government".
Post lunch, there is a special session to welcome the OECD Director and Speakers with a presentation on "OECD's Challenge and Contributions to International Taxation" followed by a session on "Digitized Business: Latest OECD Proposals". We have also invited Professor Robert Danon from Switzerland to speak on MLI and Tax Certainty in a session chaired by Robert Stack (former Deputy Assistant Secretary at the US Department of Treasury). This is followed by a panel discussion on "Tax Trends in Mergers and Acquisitions" and a high -level panel on current "Judicial Tax Perception of the Permanant Establishment". The day ends with a special dinner hosted by IBFD to commemorate their 80th anniversary this year.

On Day Three, we start with our traditional early morning discussion on "Resolution of Tax Disputes in a post BEPS World". We have invited Hon'ble Justice P P Bhatt, President, Income Tax Appellate Tribunal, India to chair this Session. G S Pannu, Vice President, Income Tax Appellate Tribunal is invited to be a part of the panel discussion. This is followed by a presentation by Professor Jeffrey Owens on "Likely Implications of the New Technologies on the future Tax Policy and Administration".

The rest of Day Three includes several speakers and panel discussions on topics such as: (i) Recent Developments in the UN Model, (ii) Protection of Taxpayers' Rights and Responsibilities under BEPS, (iii) Can BEPS lead to Tax Terrorism, and (iv) Varying tax definitions of Permanent Establishment in recent Judicial decisions.
