Fuad Saba, FGMK Specialty Tax Practice partner, attended the TIAG* Spring 2016 International Conference in Lisbon, Portugal earlier this month where he moderated a panel discussion on “International Tax Planning in a post-BEPS** World.”
Joining Fuad on the panel were international tax experts from Luxembourg, Ireland, France and China. The panel was well attended, and it is clear that the 15 BEPS Action Items are having an immediate and significant impact on tax planning by companies, and on tax law enforcement by tax authorities, around the globe.
To find out if the BEPS Action Items are likely to impact your company’s effective tax rate, please contact Fuad Saba.
* FGMK is an Illinois member firm of TIAG, a worldwide alliance of independent accounting firms.
** BEPS is the acronym for the OECD initiative against “Base Erosion and Profit Shifting,” that developed 15 Action Items aimed at making tax planning fairer and more transparent. Implementation of the Action Items by individual countries is likely to take place over the next few years.
