Industry Speakers Already Confirmed for 2019 Include
In Focus at TP Minds International 2019
Latest Thinking on Financial Transactions
Inter-Group Financing, Cash Pooling and Captive Insurance - A Step too far by the OECD? Financial Transactions have been in the spotlight since the OECD release of its discussion draft in this important area in June 2018. The pricing of debt is something that will affect all companies and not just financial groups. This session will discuss the different principles used to calculate the amount of debt, cash pooling and captive insurance and explore whether this is a step too far by the OECD.
The Role of the Arm’s Length Principle Post BEPS
In-house transfer pricing leaders will come together to take the pulse to where we are in relation to the future of the Arm’s Length Principle. The session will cover the role of the ALP in the current international tax environment and how the interactions and overlaps are growing more pronounced. Panellists will explore the topic from several angles including DPT, use of CbCR data, interaction and tension with indirect taxes, Permanent Establishment, Employment tax issues and DST.
Taxing the Digital Economy - The New Environment
Digital economy taxation remains at the top of policy makers’ agendas worldwide, with OECD, EU, as well as different Tax Administrations planning to take action on the taxation of groups with digital presence in different companies. Questions around this topic include knowing how much of it will be related to transfer pricing, and how they are proposing to tax companies. The This panel will discuss what latest policy developments will mean for business, and how industry should respond.
Benchmarking and Valuation of Intangibles
Valuation of Intangibles pose several challenges, not least in terms of establishing comparability. In a post-BEPS world, where one-sided transfer pricing may no longer be sufficient, we expect more focus on proactively supporting the profits associated with HTVI. Panellist will examine the latest thinking on the “HTVI approach", OECD’s guidance on implementation and practical aspects of dealing with HTVI, and benchmarking among other issues.
Tax Transformation and the Future of the Tax Department
This industry panel comes together to discuss tax transformation and the digitalization of tax processes from a tax payers’ perspective. Areas under examination include: Dealing with increased burden of tax administration on tax departments; Increasing transparency and improving efficiency of tax operations; Designing and defending a successful tax technology strategy; Data issues in improving the consistency of compliance processes; Automation and streamlining of tax processes.
CbCR Enquiries - Current Experiences and Outlook for 2020
Automatic Exchange of Information on CbCR started in mid-2018 and it is therefore likely that by March 2019 the first enquiries from tax administrations will have started to emerge. Are we seeing more audits and enquiries as a result of CbCR submissions? This panel will assemble both tax administrations and in-house transfer pricing professionals to discuss current experiences and also look into potential changes to the CbCR template, which is due to be revised in 2020.
