Since 2013 there have been seismic changes in the historic international tax rules that impact investment and operations of U.S. companies outside the U.S.

Though the lenses of tax practitioners from the U.S., Luxembourg, Belgium, Switzerland and the Netherlands, we will discuss:

  • The EU anti-tax avoidance directives, and how they revise thinking about structures
  • The impact of increasing transparency – CBC reporting, ruling exchanges
  • Attempts at global agreement on tax norms – The impact of the multilateral instrument
  • IP planning – What are countries doing to attract IP and R&D and how does that impact U.S. companies
  • Corporate tax reform – The ability to move earnings tax efficiently, and the race to the bottom of tax rates
  • The new tomorrow – The taxation of the digital economy
