We are pleased to invite you to the next episode of our Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive Webcast Series, Episode 3: UK and Swiss Tax Reform, Wednesday, 13 March 2019, 15:00 – 16:00 CET.
The EU Anti-Tax Avoidance Directive (ATAD I & II "ATAD") is designed to tackle tax avoidance practices, and creates minimum standards for EU Member States, which may require changes to corporate tax laws.
New rules came into effect as of January 1, 2019 and have a potential impact on cross-border transactions involving an EU entity. In this episode, we will cover the implementation of ATAD in the UK and the country’s new tax on Offshore Receipts in respect of Intangible Property (“IP”). This new tax is planned to come into effect as of April 2019, and may be imposed on income from IP held in low-tax jurisdictions to the extent referable to UK sales.
Swiss Tax Reform (“Tax Proposal 17”) will also be covered in this episode. This session will focus on the proposed changes to the Swiss federal and cantonal corporate tax system, and the potential impacts for businesses operating in Switzerland. Additionally, the path to enactment for Tax Proposal 17 will be discussed, including the public referendum on May 19, 2019 and the expected timing of the rules coming into force on January 1, 2020.
Our international tax specialists will walk through practical examples demonstrating the impact of the new rules. All live attendees will also have the chance to raise questions directly to our specialists during the Webcast.
Speakers for episode three will include:
Monica Cohen-Dumani – Partner, International Tax Services, EMEA ITS Leader – PwC Switzerland
Andy Boucher – Partner, International Tax Services – PwC UK
Armin Marti – Partner, International Tax Services and Tax Policy – PwC Switzerland
Please follow the link to register for the session and we look forward to discussing this important topic with you.
Jeg heter Ståle Wangen og jobber som advokat i Advokatfirmaet PwC. Jeg leder PwC Norges avdeling for internasjonal skatt og jobber til daglig med å bistå norske og utenlandske virksomheter med skatteplanlegging, strukturering av kjøp og salg av virksomheter, internprising og andre spørsmål knyttet til bedriftsbeskatning i Norge og utlandet. Jeg har mer enn 20 års erfaring med skatterådgivning.
Skatteverdenen blir stadig mer internasjonal og kompleks. Ved kjøp og salg av varer og tjenester utenfor Norges grenser må norske virksomheter håndtere skatteregler både i utlandet og i Norge. PwC har kontorer i de fleste land og vi har et unikt nettverk av skatterådgivere som kan bistå med spesialkompetanse på de fleste områder. Jeg håper mine innspill kan gi deg en alternativ innfallsvinkel til ulike temaer enn hva tradisjonelle nyhetsbrev gir.
Ta gjerne kontakt dersom du har spørsmål, kommentarer eller innspill.
