Program & Speakers:
We are pleased to invite you to our International Tax Conference, jointly organized in cooperation with the International Chamber of Commerce, Business at OECD and BusinessEurope. Scheduled for the 12th of July, this year’s virtual event presents a timely opportunity to discuss the “hot off the press” outcomes for a potential global deal on reforming the international tax framework, arising from the G20 Finance Ministers’ meeting in Venice on 9-10 July. The conference will provide a platform for an exchange between business representatives, key OECD and national Government officials on the fundamental architecture and elements endorsed by G20 Finance Ministers. We will discuss broader implications at global level and the way forward regarding implementation of the new international tax rules locally. The conference will be divided into two sessions focusing on Pillar One – profit reallocation, and Pillar Two – global minimum tax, each composed of an interview and followed by a panel discussion with distinguished speakers.
2.00pm – 2.05pm: Welcome Address
Georg Geberth (Vice Chair Tax Committee, Business@OECD,
Director Global Tax Policy, Siemens AG)
2.05pm – 2.30pm: Keynote
Martin Kreienbaum (Director General of International Taxation, German Ministry of Finance;
Chair of the OECD Committee on Fiscal Affairs and the Inclusive Framework on BEPS)
2.30pm – 3.45pm: Panel on Pillar One
The first panel will explore the parameters regarding the re-allocation of taxing rights between countries that would modify the rules on profit allocation to give more taxing rights to market countries, as well as the scope of companies to be covered by the new rules and the relative implications for countries and businesses alike.
Krister Andersson, BusinessEurope and Achim Pross, (OECD)
3.45pm – 5pm: Panel on Pillar Two
The second panel will expand on foundations for an applicable global minimum tax rate to avoid a perceived ‘race to the bottom’ on tax rates as well as to reduce base erosion from high tax to low tax countries. The panel will discuss global support for the proposed rate, implementation as well as anticipated revenue and investment impacts for countries and businesses.
Will Morris, Business@OECD and Achim Pross, (OECD)
