Wednesday, July 15 | Impact of the changing global tax landscape on Asia-Pacific (10 pm ET)

The year 2020 is a tumultuous and challenging year for businesses. This is evidenced by the strong headwinds in the global tax policy landscape with multiple priorities, such as:

  • Global policy makers responding quickly to the COVID-19 pandemic with support and stimulus packages, fueling the question of how these packages will be paid for after the crisis eases
  • Unilateral implementation of taxation on digital transactions picking up in parallel as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) presses on with the Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) 2.0 project
  • Continued European Union (EU) initiatives on anti-avoidance rules and broader EU tax development

Transfer pricing continues to be a key area of concern for cross-border disputes, expected to be exacerbated by effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Trade tensions have also put further strain on the global economy and businesses.

While companies in Asia deal with the disruptions caused by the pandemic on their business, they must also not lose sight of the impact of the changing global tax landscape on their businesses.

Against this backdrop, we are delighted to have EY's global tax policy and controversy leaders to share their insights on the myriad of developments that are happening globally and how multinational companies need to respond to all these competing priorities. Our speakers will cover the following:

  • Current developments in the OECD and EU, including what to expect in the BEPS 2.0 project
  • Global response to the COVID-19 health and economic crisis, stimulus measures enacted across the globe and how to identify relevant government policies designed to provide relief and support for businesses during this time
  • The challenges and potential options available to companies to manage their transfer pricing amid the crisis and the disruption to their supply chains
