Tuesday, 19 May 2020 | International tax talk quarterly series with the EY Global Tax Desk Network | A series addressing pertinent global tax topics and recent developments (1 pm ET)

Back to the future: navigating an evolving tax landscape amid market disruptions

Multinationals are trying to navigate the immediate impact of COVID-19 and the associated stimulus packages and tax measures being introduced around the world. They are also working to understand how these developments impact ongoing global tax developments arising from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD’s) Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project, including the shift towards its “BEPS 2.0” initiative.

The challenges today parallel in many respects the global financial crisis of the late 2000s, which helped to spur BEPS and the numerous global tax developments that have followed. Although this crisis has different origins, multinational entities are once again facing a paradigm shift fueled by a global downturn and anticipated major changes in tax policy, legislation and administration. To help companies address these challenges, this webcast will cover a range of global tax developments and trends with a view to the longer-term implications, while highlighting current approaches to consider and inherent tax risks, including increased tax controversy.

Our panelists will include representatives from our EY Global Desks covering perspectives from the European Union, Latin America and Asia Pacific. Panelists will highlight key actions that your business should consider over the next months, as well as broader approaches that businesses can consider to help manage their global tax profile and tax controversy amid the evolving landscape and disruption.

Specifically, the panelists will discuss the following topics:

  • COVID-19 economic stimulus – measures and potential impacts
  • BEPS 2.0 initiatives – unilateral actions and Pillar 2 initiatives
  • Anti-hybrid mismatch rules – impact on intellectual property structures and other implications
  • Enhanced tax transparency and substance requirements – reportable transactions and business purpose
  • Other tax reforms and trends – impacts and considerations
