From BEPS recommendations to hard law: EU Directives and the MLI
The international tax landscape is changing rapidly. The BEPS recommendations are being turned into hard law instruments with the EU at the fore. ATAD will introduce a number of BEPS measures in all EU Member States. The Action 15 Multilateral Instrument is expected to be signed by all EU Member States. In addition, the European Commission has published an ambitious agenda for fair corporate taxation in the EU.
The time is right to zoom into these developments: what have they brought so far and what more can be expected? What options do national legislators given the limited flexibility of ATAD and the MLI? Now that BEPS recommendations are turned into hard law what does this mean for tax payers, tax advisors and the Dutch investment climate?
The YIN winter seminar is organised by the YIN committee of the Dutch branch of the IFA. The event is primarily organised for existing and future IFA members under 40, but other members of the IFA branch will be welcome to join the meeting.
