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 five of his top experts will make presentations and speak about the recent progress of the BEPS project with MLI in Action at our conference. Day One also 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 its global impact.

On Day Two, our session on BEPS in India includes a presentation by Arbind Modi (a CBDT Committee member) on the now updated Direct Tax Code to be introduced later this year and by a talk on Recent Developments under BEPS in India by Akhilesh Ranjan (Chief Commissioner of International Taxation, India). The rest of the Day includes several speakers and panel discussions on topics such as: (I) Recent Developments in the UN Model, (ii) Computer Applications to manage Taxation of Professional Businesses, (iii) Protection of Taxpayers’ Rights under BEPS, (iv) Can BEPS lead to Tax Terrorism, and (v) Varying tax definitions of Permanent Establishment in recent Judicial decisions.

On Day Three, we have invited Professor Robert Danon from Switzerland to speak on MLI and Tax Certainty. Post lunch, there is a special session to welcome the OECD Director and Speakers. We start with our early morning discussion on resolution of tax disputes in a post BEPS World. The rest of the day is devoted to several presentations on Digitised Business and its International Tax Implications, including blockchains and cryptocurrencies, and their impact on tax policy and administration. Led by Professor Jeffrey Owens on how these new technologies transform (I) the tax system, (ii) tax administration and (iii) tax policy. The full programme is given overleaf.

The three-day event packed program also includes social gettogether followed by drinks and dinner after the day's session for networking.
