EU Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive and State Aid (1.5 Professional Practice CLE Credits)

When: October 27, 2016 from 12:30pm to 2:00pm

Apple, Starbucks, and Amazon are making headlines for allegedly using international tax structures that result in these companies having reduced tax liabilities. In response, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) developed an action plan known as base erosion and profits shifting (BEPS), intended to ensure that tax is paid where profits and value are generated and that governments can more effectively exercise their tax sovereignty. This master class will explore and clarify these timely international tax issues that concern the United States as well as the EU.
