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, Mike Lennard from the United Nations and Khoon Ming Ho and Akhilesh Ranjan from Asia.

On Day Two, our session on BEPS in India includes a presentation by Arbind Modi (a CBDT Committee member) on the newly updated Direct Tax Code in India to be introduced later this year and by a talk on Recent Tax Developments under BEPS in India by Akhilesh Ranjan (Principal Chief Commissioner of Income Tax (International) in India. Professor Parthasarathi Shome will chair a discussion on BEPS and Indian Tax Policy in the Future by leading Indian tax professionals. The rest of DayTwo includes several speakers and panel discussions on topics such as: (i) Recent Developments in the UN Model (with Michael Lennard as speaker), (ii) Protection of Taxpayers' Rights under BEPS, (iii) Can BEPS lead to Tax Terrorism & What is Tax Terrorism? (iv) Global Tax Trends in Mergers and Acquisitions, and (v) Review of varying tax definitions of Permanent Establishment in recent judicial decisions in India.We have also invited Professor Robert Danon from Switzerland to speak on Tax Certainty.under MLI with a policy of Abuse Prevention in future in a session chaired by Bob Stack. 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 discussion on resolution of tax disputes in a post BEPS World. This is followed by a presentation by Professor Jeffrey Owens on likely implications of the use of new technologies on future tax policy and administration. It is followed by a panel discussion on how they will transform the (i) tax systems, (ii) tax administration and (iii) tax policies. Post lunch, there is a special session to welcome the OECD Director and Speakers with a presentation (hopefully by them) on "OECD's Challenges and their Contributions to International Taxation." There is also a brief session on the new Goods and Services Tax in India. The conference ends with presentations and panel discussions on the future use of technology to manage professional tax practices and services as well as the use of Blockchain technology to assist tax management and compliance. The three-day event packed programme also includes daily social get-togethers for networking. This summary highlights some of the key topics covered in the conference. The full programme is given overleaf.
