Event: The OECD’s Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Project: Will the Arm’s Length Standard Survive?
Recent news media articles (promptly followed by Congressional and Parliamentary hearings) have
shined a spot light on the remarkably low rates of tax paid by successful US-based technology
companies such as Apple and Google. In response, in July 2013 the Organisation for Economic
Co-operation and Development (“OECD”) launched its “Action Plan on Base Erosion and Profit Shifting”
(“BEPS”), arguably the most comprehensive governmental review of the fundamental principles of
international taxation since the 1920s. Beginning as early as September 2014, the OECD’s BEPS project is
expected to profoundly affect tax planning for MNCs. We will provide a survey of the project and its
potential implications from a taxpayer’s perspective.
Speaker: Walter Kolligs, Vice President and Head of International Tax, Visa Inc
