Global Tax Controversy - Workshop for Corporates

; posted on
June 21st, 2018

The BEPS Action Plans, in an attempt to tackle extreme cases of tax evasion, have inevitably blurred the line between strategic tax planning and fraudulent tax evasion for corporate taxpayers. This, coupled with latest publications of the OECD on ‘Fighting Tax Crime’ where taxpayers’ rights find a bleak mention as ‘suspects’ rights’ has given force to many governments to enact a number of aggressive (and often, unjust) regulations. This is evidently setting the scene for increasing tax controversy at a global level.

Every taxpayer, who wants to still be “in control”, needs to be aware of:

  • The toolbox of dispute avoidance and resolution instruments available at its disposal (ranging from safe harbours, bilateral and unilateral APAs, MAP procedures, ICAP processes, ISO certification, mandatory binding arbitration, mediation, and litigation, among others); and
  • The applicability of each of these dispute management instruments to different parts of its value chain as well at different stages of the dispute (for example, an APA is more appropriate as a preventive mechanism for gaining certainty on a broader spectrum of operations while a MAP resolution provides an immediate resolution to issue at hand).

Therefore, TPA Global is facilitating a workshop on ‘global tax controversy’ for corporate taxpayers where a team of globally renowned, independent specialists (See for more details of the speakers) with wide-ranging experience in value chain analysis, arbitration, mediation, litigation and tax rulings, are invited to discuss these issues with corporate taxpayers in an interactive workshop setting.

At the workshop, the corporate taxpayers will have a chance to interact with each other and with specialists dedicated to dealing with global tax controversy through 8 mini workshops of one hour each. Each mini workshop will be facilitated by 2 specialists, where, at first a brief introduction of the issue will be presented and thereafter three broad statements on how to tackle the issue including latest case references will be discussed in an open platform with corporate attendees.

In the last hour of the session, the attendees are provided an opportunity to discuss any specific issues that they may be facing with a specialist of their choice at an individual level.
