Brave New World: fairness and tax competitiveness agendas, base erosion and profit shifting, how should financial institutions respond?

Date: 10 April 2014
Venue: London Hilton, Tower Bridge
Times: 08.00am - 10.00am

This session will consider what the main elements of a sustainable corporate structure should be as the modernisation of the global tax system triggered by the OECD work on base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) continues.

In particular the OECD is entering the next stage of its BEPS action plan with public consultations in relation to Tax Treaty Abuse and Hybrid Mismatch Arrangements expected shortly before the seminar. The seminar is aimed at banks, insurers, asset managers and other financial services institutions.

We’ll consider both immediate and longer term changes needed, but looking in detail at the impact of:

• Template structure
• UK as a holding company/hub
• The OECD position & local territory responses and incentives
• Hybrid instruments and entities
• Intangibles: systems expenditure and brand
• Interaction with regulatory change including Capital Requirements Directive IV (CRDIV), Solvency II, Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD)

The seminar will be led by Peter Maybrey, Robin Palmer, Justin Woodhouse, Loic Webb-Martin and Stephen Cruse, specialists in international tax and transfer pricing from our financial services team.
